Until our emergency glass repair team reaches your house, here are a few steps you can take to keep your family safe.
Secure the Affected Area
To block the affected area, ask everyone to leave the room and close the door behind you carefully. If it were an open area, take the children and pets to another place and close it. Make sure to warn everybody at home that there is broken glass, so they stay away from it.
Put on Closed Shoes and Thick Gloves
If you will return to the affected area, protect yourself first. Broken glass can spread over a large amount of space. So wear sturdy shoes and put on heavy-duty gloves, before you start cleaning.
Clean Up the Glass
Very carefully start picking up the larger pieces of glass. If there is still any glass left in the frame, it is advisable to leave it there. With the slightest movement, it could fall and cause you serious injuries. You could carefully put a towel over it for the emergency glass repair professionals to take care of.
Before throwing the pieces of broken glass in the garbage bag, wrap them in a thick layer of newspaper. This way they will not rip the garbage bag or injure you or the people who pick up the trash.
Now, for cleaning the smaller pieces, you can try folding a paper towel, dampen it and pat it into the shards. Another way is to press a wide duct tape into the shards to pick them up. Finally, vacuum the area and its surroundings thoroughly, several times if you can.
