We can all agree that both you and your family’s safety is most important when considering taking on a property restoration project. However, this is one aspect that is largely overlooked by the amateur restorer.
So before you start your project you should assess the situation and think of what safety gear you may need; more commonly referred to as PPE (personal protective equipment).
Every different restoration project will have a different set of PPE that should be considered. For example, a simple drywall and painting project may require only minimum PPE such as a dust mask and eye protection, but more involved property restoration projects such as a Category-3 water damage loss would require you equip a much more serious set of PPE.
