When a window breaks, call a glass repair specialist but take some precautions to prevent cuts or other injuries.
Maybe someone tried to break in. Or maybe one of the kids threw a ball a bit too hard. Or maybe the wind blew a tree limb against your house. No matter how it happened, you have a broken window. Now you’re less worried about getting to hear the BluesBox Bayou Band than about making sure no one is hurt.
You’re right to be concerned. As Angie’s List points out: “Bits, shards and chunks of broken window glass can be sharp and dangerous.” Angie’s List offers tips to help deal with the window until help arrives:
- “Call a glass repair service” (like Don’s Mobile Glass).
- “Assess the mess” – check to see how far the shards and other broken bits spread.
- “Secure the area” – keep children, pets and others out of the area.
- “Secure the window.”
- “Clean up the broken glass. Double-bag all the loose glass in trash bags and place them immediately in the garbage. When cleaning up after a window or mirror that has been broken near tile or hardwood floors, sweep and then vacuum slowly and carefully to avoid pulling a shard under the wheel of the vacuum and scratching your floors. If the glass was broken around carpeting, you face a trickier task. First, wearing protective gloves, pick up the most visible pieces then vacuum the carpet. Next, use a small scrub brush to agitate the carpet fibers. Afterward, use a piece of tape to pick up smaller shards. Be sure to test the tape out on an inconspicuous area to ensure that it doesn't damage your carpet.”
