Safety Precautions

Safety During Water DamageWhen done correctly there are not many safety concerns after water damage. However, here are some things you may want to watch out for.

Typically electrical cords are strung everywhere when drying out a home. Watch out as this may pose as a trip hazard.

Tack strip (the strip or nails holding your carpet in place) will be exposed around the edges of rooms. Tack strips are rarely removed as these damages the slab underneath. It is advised to wear shoes in the home until the carpet is reinstalled or replaced.

Air movers should always have a guard covering their air intake, however sometimes these fall off unnoticed. Keep in mind there are moving parts inside all fans.

Water may slowly seep up from underneath hardwood floors creating ongoing slip hazards.
