Safe Usage, Storage & Transportation

Safe Usage
  • Use only the amount required for the job. Using twice as much doesn't mean twice the results; it may actually have a dangerous result.
  • Always read and follow instructions on product labels.
  • Use products in well-ventilated areas. Open your windows, doors, and use an exhaust fan to remove fumes.
  • Wear protective gloves, safety glasses, or a respirator when product label suggests.
  • Never mix different products. Explosions or poisonous chemical reactions may occur.
Safe Storage
  • If possible, keep products in their original containers for important descriptive information in case of poisoning; otherwise, label containers identifying the type or name brand product.
  • Make certain all lids are tightly sealed and products are in an upright position.
  • Check containers for leak or rust holes. If a container leaks, place in a larger container and add oil absorbent or another absorbent such as kitty litter.
  • Do not mix different or unknown chemicals together.
  • Always store in a well-ventilated, cool, dry, secure place that is out of reach of children and animals.
Safe Transport
  • Keep material in an original container with label intact.
  • Clearly label the container if the original label is missing.
  • For a container with no label, include any information you have about the product, (paint, insecticide, etc.), on the container.
  • Place leaking containers in a larger container.
  • Do not mix different or unknown materials together.
  • Place all items in a box in the trunk for transporting.
