Emergency Window Replacement
A broken window can be extremely hazardous, particularly if you have young children at home. Besides, a window breakage can compromise the safety of your home or business, making it impossible to keep undesirable elements out.
It is especially important that businesses, hospitals and schools have twenty-four-hour access to emergency window replacement because a window breakage in these buildings can be difficult to contain, and can endanger the safety of many.
When is emergency window replacement required?
Any time that a window is visibly damaged, you should consider it an emergency. Window cracks can be a sign of a structural shift in your building, and even small cracks can cause a window to shatter spontaneously, posing a risk to anyone nearby.
When a window shatters completely, it is hazardous for anyone close. You can sweep and vacuum meticulously and still find shards of glass for weeks to come. It is why we reiterate that even a small imperfection in your window equates to an emergency. Preventing a large-scale breakage through pre-emptive glass replacement is better than dealing with the mess and putting yourself and others in harm’s way.
If you notice a crack, don’t delay in having your window replaced. Call Jim’s Glass on 131 546, at any time of the day or night, and eliminate the risk of a more severe emergency occurring.
What to do in a window breakage emergency?
If an emergency breakage occurs, section-off the area, if possible, and remove yourself from the hazard. Do not attempt to handle the glass yourself. Without the right safety equipment, there should never be less than a broom-handle between you and the broken glass.
