Safe Work Practices for Handling Flood Damage in Staunton

Flooding brings a range of safety hazards. In addition to water damage, floodwater in Staunton can be dangerous even after it begins receding. Not only is there possible pollution from contaminants like chemicals and sewage, but standing water could also include sharp objects, biohazards, and other debris. You must never wade through floodwaters and always remain aware that you can breathe in various toxins. 

SERVPRO’s technicians go through regular training to help us remain aware of possible hazards and handle flooding to homes and businesses. We follow safety protocols to keep our team safe and our clients. Even a tiny scratch can be a concern when it comes to the potential viruses, bacteria, and biohazards in floodwater. Each situation gets evaluated to determine all risk factors, and we ask clients not to go into flooded areas for protection. 

Our team uses the following as part of our personal protective equipment (PPE):

  • Full bodysuits
  • Rubber boots
  • Respirators
  • Chemical resistant gloves
  • Goggles

Containment is Key

For any interior flooding, water must get contained as best as possible so that unaffected areas of your home do not get contaminated. We put containment barriers in place and remain proactive to limit tracking from one zone to the next. Our team gets started right away on water mitigation strategies to pull up as much standing water as possible. This, blended with our dehumidification and drying efforts, help us to achieve our goals fast.
