Blog: Attention everyone! The summer season is almost here! Schools are wrapping up their spring semester and stores are putting out their summer clothing lines. Enjoying the refreshing water at the pool or at the beach is likely listed on everyone's summer schedule one way or another. What probably is not on your schedule is enjoying water in the living room of your home. Summer is a time that many people look forward to, but it also brings an increased chance of severe weather and tropical storms which can lead to water damage.

When you’re standing in several inches of water in the living room of your home, the first thought that probably crosses your mind is, “how am I going to get all this water out of my home?” Before you take action, it is important to first identify all potential hazards in order to keep everyone present safe. Here are a few common hazards to keep an eye out for.

Overhead hazards can refer to things like ceiling tiles that are filled with water and may potentially collapse and cause injury. Electrical shock hazards are caused by water coming into contact with electrical systems. Slip, trip, and fall hazards are due to wet surfaces that can sometimes go unnoticed. Water can often become hazardous when contaminated by different chemicals and minerals. And finally, poor lighting can create hazardous conditions by preventing clear vision of the surrounding area.

There may also be hazards that are very easy to miss. So it’s always good to call in the professionals, and who better to call for water damage restoration than SERVPRO!
