What To Do If Your Shower Screen Breaks!
It is a nightmare when glass breaks inside your house. However, when a shower screen breaks in your bathroom, it is more dangerous. With a cracked shower screen you have to be extra careful, especially if it breaks when you are taking a shower.
Although it is unlikely for the glass of the shower screen to break, you have to be prepared, just in case. You should not wait for long, before calling a shower screen repair service. Broken glass should be removed and replaced, as soon as possible.

Before calling the glass repair service, here are a few things you could do to protect yourself and your family against a broken shower screen:
Lay a Towel on the floor
If you are taking a shower, when the shower screen breaks, you should turn off the water and stand still. Do not panic! Try to calm down and look for the nearest towel. Grab the towel and lay it on the floor to avoid stepping on the broken glass. See if you can call for help and try to get some shoes on, if possible, before walking out.
If it was your child in the shower, wear some shoes on and take a big towel with you, before you get in the bathroom. Get in there, put the towel on the floor and remove the child
Get out and Perform First Aid
Once you have carefully navigated your way out of the bathroom, check if there are any injuries. Perform any needed first aid procedures, like removing the embedded glass and treating any cuts. In the case of serious injuries, go to the nearest emergency room.
Close the Bathroom and Warn Your Famil
To secure the area of the broken shower screen, close the bathroom after you get out. This step is critical, especially if you have small children or pets. Then, you should warn your family that there is broken glass in the bathroom, to keep them away from it.
