In every water or flood situation, there are specific hazards that SERVPRO staff needs to be aware of to stay safe. Electricity can be a significant issue since water and electricity do not mix. If possible, we turn the power off to your home at the main circuit breaker.
We take extra caution if the water is running from a light switch, light fixture, or outlet. We also use a ground fault circuit interrupter or GFCI for all electrical equipment.
We avoid using metal tools such as hand lines, ropes, measuring tapes, ladders, or other metal materials which could contact energized equipment or circuits.
