SERVPRO - Safety First, Safety always. SERVPRO of Monroe, Randolph and Washington Counties (618)464-0300

OSHA RULES

When handling any sized disaster for your business, SERVPRO knows safety is top priority, and following OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Association) guidelines are of the upmost importance. For fire, water, and mold cleanup, it is up to us to be aware of any dangers and preventative measures. For the disaster restoration to go more smoothly, we at SERVPRO like to share those measures with you. For more information on OSHA guidelines, visit www.osha.gov.

Basic Safety Risks

These are a few safety tips that are essential for being safe in a home or business disaster.

  1. Sometimes structural integrity issues occur from fire or flood damage so don’t walk on surfaces that are not stable. 
  2. Toxic chemicals can be produced from a water or fire disaster. Always wear boots and gloves to protect yourself.
  3. Damage done to structures or furniture can create sharp points or jagged edges. If you do get injured, use care when handling and cleaning any cuts or wounds.
  4. To prevent eye injuries from flying debris, dust, contaminated water, or chemicals, wear safety goggles. 
  5. Avoid areas with carbon monoxide from propane, gas fired generators, or other equipment.
  6. When using ladders, always position at a safe angle, avoid any electrical wires overhead, and do not place on unstable surfaces.
  7. Always follow the manufacturer's instructions and don’t overreach when using chainsaws or other power tools.
  8. Wear proper filtration masks/equipment when dealing with toxic fumes and mold spores.

At SERVPRO, we take OSHA guidelines seriously in order to keep our technicians (and you) safe. By sharing some of these preventative measures, we hope to make you aware of the standard we are held to so that you may stay safe as well.

Does Your Business Have The Right Insurance Coverage??

Faster to any disaster - SERVPRO of Monroe, Randolph, and Washington Counties - 24/7 Emergency Services - 618-464-0300

As unpredictable as life is, it is important that your business has the proper insurance coverage for a variety of disasters. Basic property insurance is a must, but we urge you to search for more specific coverage. Talk to your insurance agent to see what kind of coverage you can get to protect your belongings.

For example, property insurance will cover the general repairs such as water damage due to leaks and other external factors, but flood and storm insurance specifically target the kind of prolonged water damage you can get from floods or the damage caused by hail.


We at SERVPRO of Monroe, Randolph & Washington Counties want only the best for you and your business, so do not hesitate to call the experts at (618) 464-0300.

HEPA the filter of Heroes

1/4/2022 (Permalink)

SERVPRO Air Scrubbers are equipped with HEPA filters for your piece of mind

Mold is tricky to remediate. It grows rapidly and spreads millions of spores as long as it is allowed to sit. The worst part is, some things cannot be recovered from mold. If mold is growing on drywall, the only way to remove it is to cut out the entire section of affected drywall. Quick mold removal is essential when your stuff is on the line. One of the ways SERVPRO helps you recover from any mold disaster is through HEPA filters and vacuums. 

HEPA

HEPA filters are heavy-duty filters that can capture particles in the air. When used properly, they are the most efficient way of removing mold spores from your business. HEPA filters are mostly found in our air scrubbers. We close off mold-afflicted rooms and create a negative-pressure environment, forcing all of the air through the HEPA filter-equipped air scrubber. This ensures that those mold spores are captured and destroyed, bringing the mold level back to natural levels. 

Use in Fire Disasters

The use of HEPA filters and vacuums doesn’t stop there. They also prove useful in fire situations. Air scrubbers are used to remove smoke odors and HEPA vacuums are used to remove soot webs.

If your business is affected by mold, call your local SERVPRO of Monroe, Randolph & Washington Counties at (618) 464-0300.
