SERVPRO Takes Safety Precautions Seriously when Cleaning Your Largo Residence.



A fire in your Largo home in Pinellas County can be utterly overwhelming as you decide what course of action to take. Safety is the first concern, and it is vital to remove all imminent dangers from your house. Technicians thoroughly scope the damage while ensuring a safe working environment.

Do I Need to Leave My House During the Cleanup Process?

SERVPRO Creates an Individualized Plan Catered to Your Unique Situation in Largo.

We understand that each fire damage restoration project in Largo comes with its own set of issues and that property owners may not want to leave the property during the cleanup and repair process. However, it would be best for you to consider factors such as your electricity and water status. Together, you decide with the SERVPRO project manager or team leader, whether or not your home is inhabitable during the restoration process. 

What Are Some Safety Issues to Consider?

  • Homeowners and restorers must communicate throughout the restoration process to establish procedures, particularly on securing the worksite. 
  • Both homeowners and technicians should keep the area clean and organized to eliminate further safety hazards.
  • Technicians should wear PPE (personal protective equipment) during the restoration process.

What Is Proper PPE Protocol for Fire Restoration?

  • PPE should be clean before each use. 
  • Technicians wear respirators when dealing with organic or chemical vapors and debris. As a homeowner, if you see a technician wearing a respirator, it is safe to say that you either need a respirator or you should steer clear of the area where they are working.
  • When wearing gloves, they should be chemical resistant for skin safety to avoid blisters or irritation.
