Stay Safe After Oceanside Flood Damage

SERVPRO safety check list SERVPRO puts safety first when it comes to flood removal services. Call our experts at (516) 536-1801.

Our Safety Advice Before and During Flood Removal Services

Our specialists wear heavy protective equipment (PPE) when handling storm flooding. When you see the gear we use, you may understand why we recommend waiting for SERVPRO to clear the area.

Homes in Oceanside with flood damage may harbor hazardous materials, dangerous microbes, and unseen dangers such as shards of glass. For this reason, we enter flooded Oceanside homes wearing heavy rubber boots and gloves, advanced respirators, and sometimes full-body protection suits for situations such as cleaning up after a sewer backup. 

Because we would not enter these situations without protective gear, we always recommend residents refrain from doing so, too. We recommend avoiding these situations before an Oceanside SERVPRO representative tells you otherwise:

  • Any case involving sewage cleanup
  • Basement flooding cleanup
  • Flood restoration areas with lots of debris
  • Areas touched by dirty “black” water

By following our safety recommendations throughout the flood damage restoration process, you can be sure that your family will remain safe throughout the crisis. If you must enter a damaged area for any reason, always wear closed-toe shoes and avoid touching any surfaces.

SERVPRO of Long Beach / Oceanside provides expert damage mitigation and restoration services after flood damage hits the local area. Contact us at (516) 536-1801.
