What is a bio-hazard?

yellow bio hazard sign Biohazards are dangerous

Biohazards are described as any biologic or chemical matter that is harmful to the environment, animals, or human-beings. This includes body liquids, human blood, and tissue, plus recombinant DNA.

Biohazards have the potential to defile anyone exposed to them, all human material should be handled in good order and gotten rid of properly.

Lots of us consider biohazards, and we immediately wander to the frightening film you saw over the weekend – things like anxiety, sickness, and pollution.

Biohazards aren't confined to the motion pictures and they can live almost anyplace: In the food we consume, the water we swallow, the air we subsist on, even the bodily fluids pumping in our blood vessels.

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) classifies biohazards into four well-defined categories:

Biohazard level ONE: They don't broadly create illness in thriving people. An instance of a level 1 biohazard could be Bacillus subtilis, a dirt bacterium that can cause sickness in various people with diminished immune systems.

Biohazard level TWO: These can be the reason for severe illness in healthy people, and maybe the sole reason or transmission through direct physical contact with infectious material or by consumption. An illustration of a level 2 biohazard is salmonella, HIV, and hepatitis B.

Biohazard level THREE: an infectious agent that can cause real sickness and can even move with the air. An instance of a level 3 biohazard could be a respiratory organ disease that can move between people through the air, like tuberculosis.

Biohazard level FOUR: Micro-organism causing illness where there's no treatment. An example would be Marburg virus, a deathly variety of hemorrhagic fever that's sent by direct interaction with infectious body liquids or polluted objects.

Water damage from basement floods in residential homes

Remember that when flooding does occur the main goal is to get the basement emptied and dried out as quickly as possible to mitigate rotting or warping of surfaces and stem the growth of mold.

Use industrial grade fans to completely dry the basement and inspect the entire room carefully for any damage that may need to be repaired.

Don’t forget to check your fuse box to make sure it hasn’t been affected by the water as this can be a serious fire hazard.

While water damage from basement floods in residential homes may be a headache, it is something that needs to be taken very seriously as it can affect the safety of your entire home.

For this reason, if you have even the slightest doubt about your home’s safety, you should contact a professional to perform a thorough cleanup so that you and your family can rest easy.

We are open 24/7/365, we are waiting for your call 800-734-3213

Storms can occur at any time and can cause large amounts of damage to your residential or commercial property. Heavy rains can cause flooding, powerful winds can cause roof damage, and there are a number of other damages that can occur on your property. Having a strategy to deal with damage will help you to be ready immediately after the storm.

Safety First

After a storm event, there are certain things to be wary of. Electrical devices and outlets can become unstable posing a risk of electrocution. Gas tanks and water mains could begin to leak. And you should always be on the lookout for debris. Keeping yourself safe after a storm is the most important step to take. 

Take Photos

After damage occurs from a storm, if conditions allow, take some photos. Any pictures you take can be useful for insurance claim purposes down the line.

Call the Experts

First, call your insurance company to let them know of the damage that has occurred. Then, the best next step to take is to call an expert restoration company. Calling a restoration company can help you to begin the process of restoring your home, and your life, back to normal.

Call SERVPRO of Old Saybrook to help you get back on your feet.

Electrical Power Cords Can Be Dangerous

10/10/2019 (Permalink)

Power cords on electrical appliances that are moved frequently receive a lot of abuse. The top electrical appliances that are constantly being moved around include: vacuum cleaners, blow dryers, phone chargers, etc. When cords are being moved so frequently, they can become damaged or ungrounded. Cord damage can also result when the cord is pinched, caught between or punctured by heavy objects such as legs on a desk. This damage could lead to a short circuit and result in a fire. Also, cords placed under stress, such as when a heavy appliance is hung by its cord, could eventually cause damage to the cord or plug. These power cords then pose serious hazards to users of the appliance including electrical shock and risk of fire.  When a power cord is damaged, the appliance should be removed from service and the cord replaced as soon as possible to reduce the risk of electrical shock, electrocution, or fire.

If you’ve faced a fire due to an electrical power cord issue, call SERVPRO of Old Saybrook. We can help make your disaster, “Like it never even happened.”
