Examples of PPE SERVPRO Technicians use include:

Chemical Resistant Gloves - These gloves prevent your hands from being exposed to absorbing chemicals and contamination to micro-organisms. Surgical gloves are added as an additional layer whenever contaminant containment is imperative.

Heavy Duty Gloves - This type of glove helps to protect the hands while demolishing and removing structural materials. They are thicker and provide additional protection.

Splash Goggles and Safety Glasses - While safety glasses protect the eyes from burns or intrusions from flying objects or a corrosive substance, Splash Goggles can offer more resistance to contamination from infectious spores.

Respirator - Depending on the type of hazards you encounter, a breathing respirator or full-face respirator may be needed. Coming in contact with mold particles, chemicals, and black water damage requires a different type of protection. HEPA filters for particulates and organic vapors may be necessary for some instances.

Hard Hat - Everyone is required to wear a Hard Hat whenever there is the possibility of falling objects or if there is a need to enter cramped spaces. Maintaining the integrity and working condition of your hard hat is essential to proper protection.

Rubber Boots - These boots protect the wearer from electrical hazards and unwanted skin contact. Additional protection, such as steel shanks and steel toes offer additional safety when protruding hazards exist.

Electrical Circuit Tester & GFCI - This equipment is used to detect electrical flow and should be used to avoid any dangerous condition where the possibility of being shocked exists. Different types of testers exist, but, it is possible to find one that can determine the circuit that is grounded or protected by a GFCI. Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCI) protect workers from electrical equipment that deployed during repairs.

Full-body Suits - Various versions of this outfit can help protect someone from different types of exposure. However, they do not offer full containment of every kind of hazard.
