Keeping You Safe is Our Job!

4/7/2021 (Permalink)

Even though it has already been a year, we are still in the grasps of a global pandemic and trying to keep ourselves and our homes as clean as possible. Due to this, you may find yourself using household cleaners and chemicals more often. You may be wondering if there are any tips or tricks to prevent a hazardous situation from occurring, and you’re in luck. SERVPRO of White Plains & New Rochelle employees go through multiple safety training sessions to learn how to keep ourselves and our customers safe from chemicals, both household and industrial. Keep reading to find out some of our must-know tips:

  • Keep any bottles containing hazardous chemicals properly labeled and stored. NEVER remove the label unless it is corroding. In that case, carefully re-package and label the container.
  • Never store these containers near any food items.
  • When using household chemicals, never use near an open flame. 
  • Some chemicals should never be combined as they may react, ignite or explode. An example is chlorine bleach and ammonia. 
  • Make sure that you have access to the phone number for the National Poison Control Center on both your cell phone and landlines. They can be reached at 1-800-222-1222.

If you ever find yourself hesitant to use chemicals you’re not sure about, SERVPRO of White Plains & New Rochelle is happy to help. Give us a call at 914-684-1560 and we would be glad to answer any questions, or schedule a deep-clean or disinfection of your property. We have the knowledge to keep you safe!
