How We Assess Hazards in Water-Damaged Bloomfield Homes

With every recovery and restoration project that our SERVPRO professionals undertake in Bloomfield homes, there are inevitable risks and hazards. Determining the severity of these concerns is a nearly constant balancing act for our technicians on-site and management officials working to maximize efficiency in the safest manner possible. Risk and hazard assessment is only part of the equation; however, as we must classify how these potential pitfalls must get managed.

Hazard management can help our entire team to become more efficient with restoring and drying water damage in Bloomfield homes. In truth, potential problems could exist in multiple areas moving outwardly from the origin point of the water loss. Slip/fall hazards, shock risks, structural weaknesses, and inadequate or non-existent lighting are all potential scenarios our technicians must face on a water restoration site. We must also consider the pressing need to keep others away from these risks and protect the occupants of the house if water loss scenarios were not damaging enough to require relocation.

The identification of the hazards on a water loss site should happen even before much of the mitigation tasks like water removal and drying efforts begin. Knowing these risks can help our SERVPRO professionals to implement control measures to prevent these situations from harming anyone. Not all identified hazards in the house are going to get managed in the same way, as there are typically many approaches that can keep drying and cleaning happening without risking the health and wellbeing of those on-site.

Elimination and substitution are among the top methods for working amongst hazards in a water-damaged house. With this approach, our team members assess the possibilities of avoiding the hazard entirely or designing a safer approach to accomplish the same outcome.

Loss incidents present new risks and hazards for professional restoration teams every day. How these hazards get managed protects not only our SERVPRO of Nutley / Bloomfield technicians but those still living on the property. No matter how severe water loss incidents can be, let our team show you that We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster by calling (973) 662-0062.
