If glass in your car, truck, or auto breaks it can be very dangerous to you and your family. Here are a few for how to properly clean up and preserve your glass until our team of professionals can get there to help you.

 

  1. Protect yourself first. Put on closed toed shoes and gloves if you have them.
  2. Very carefully pick up the large pieces of glass and dispose of them. It’s a good idea to wrap them in a thick paper product like newspaper or double wrapping it in a separate trash bag to keep the glass from ripping the garbage bag. You’ll want to dispose of the trash in your outdoor garbage bin as soon as possible.
  • Make sure the shards of glass are cleaned up. This task can be a bit trickier. There are a few different ways this can be achieved. One is by folding a paper towel and dampening it before patting it into the shards. Another way is by picking a wide tape, like packing or masking tape, and pressing it into the shards to pick them up.
  1. Vacuum the area and surrounding area where the glass broke. Vacuuming several times is a good idea to make sure all of the shards are collected.
  2. Check the surrounding areas where the glass broke. This means checking  near the breaking point. If you find glass here, take appropriate measures to clean it up.
  3. Secure the area of the broken glass, especially if it is unstable or has sharp edges showing. Make sure everyone in your household is aware of the incident and knows the careful precautions to take around the area.
