Wet and dry vacuums are not toys. These wet/dry vacuum units are meant to clean up major messes, spills, construction sites, demolition or other large areas of debris in a home or office building. It is not difficult to see how you can be seriously injured by a wet/dry vacuum. It is imperative that these units be kept in tip top working order at all times. The owner of the wet/dry vacuum unit needs to maintain it, to prevent someone else from being injured from it.
Injuries Typical of a Wet/Dry Vacuum
Many people every year are injured by a wet/dry vacuum. These units are needing to be maintained properly, to avoid the chance of inflicting an injury on the person using it. If you are a maintenance worker, or other person who uses a wet/dry vacuum that someone else maintains, you need to be aware that the owner needs to maintain this unit. If the wet/dry vacuum unit is in ill repair, there will be a high level of opportunities for damages, losses and serious personal injuries as a result of this type of negligence.
The wet/dry vacuum packs a powerful punch, in that it sucks up debris, liquid and other matter quickly and with a powerful suction action from the machine. If the nozzle gets too close to clothing, fingers, open toes in shoes or hair, it can literally pull off the skin in these areas.
There are a number of hazards associated with using a poorly maintained wet/dry vacuum. The types of injuries that can be experienced from a wet/dry vacuum are:
- Electrical shock
- Crushing injuries
- Burns to the skin
- Heat damage to the body
- Broken bones tripping over the chord
If you are injured by a wet/dry vacuum, then you need to give us a call. If the wet/dry vacuum unit is not working properly, it can cause serious personal injuries to anyone using the unit.
Wet/Dry Vacuums Left Unattended in the Elements are Deadly
If you are using a wet/dry vacuum unit that has been left outside in the weather, it is going to be a recipe for disaster. If the inner workings of the unit have been allowed to get wet, get crushed, get damp from humid conditions or become soaked with water vapors, this will cause an electrical hazard to the unit and anyone using it.
The handle, cords, and rollers need to be kept free of debris. If not, this will also cause problems with using the wet/dry vacuum unit. The owner of a wet/dry vacuum unit needs to review, examine and replace the extension cord on the unit, to ensure that it is working in perfect order. In the case that the plug is frayed, torn or ripped, there is a strong chance of electrocution using the unit in those cases.
