Broken glass often leaves behind tiny shards that can be difficult to clean up. Your Baytown glass company has a few tips to help you pick up all of those small pieces. Unfortunately, glass breaks all the time, whether it’s due to a dropped vase or a ball accidentally thrown through your window. Therefore, keep these steps in mind to help you effectively dispose of glass fragments that can injure you, your pets, or your family. If your window is broken, be sure to clean up both inside and outside before scheduling Baytown window repair services.
Protect Your Hands and Feet
Most importantly, you need to protect yourself from injury during the clean-up process. Wear shoes with a good sole and rubber gloves to protect your hands and feet while you pick up broken glass. This will help you avoid cuts from glass shards.
Pick Up or Sweep Larger Shards
First, you want to remove all of the large glass chunks. Doing this will make it easier as you pick up small pieces of glass, as they will be easier to see with the larger shards out of the way. Your Baytown glass company recommends using a broom to sweep these big pieces up first. Once you dispose of them, you can begin picking up the hard-to-see pieces. If you don’t have a broom, don’t use your household vacuum, as glass can damage and puncture the inside of your vacuum. If you are lacking a broom, you can try to pick up the shards with your gloved hands. However, it is important to be very careful to avoid hurting yourself.
Tape or Bread to Pick Up Small Pieces
Afterwards, try using a tape or bread to pick up the small, hard-to-see glass pieces. If you are using tape, find the thickest and widest tape you can. You also want to ensure that it has strong adhesive for the glass to stick to. Duct tape and packing tape generally work well for cleaning up broken glass.
Additionally, glass will stick to a soft piece of bread. Blot or run the slice of bread over any areas there may be broken glass. This will help remove those pesky pieces that are difficult to see and pick up.
