Home Floods - 60006
Floods can accumulate anywhere in your house. However, it is a most difficult problem to deal with when it gathers in a person's basement.
Basements hold anything from tools, old home furniture and belongings, and even paint and other chemical-based materials. All these may mix in the flood water, creating more unsafe substances. For this reason it will always be important for us to go in to floodwater with the proper gear. Water-proof and impenetrable gloves and boots are of utmost importance. Long sleeved clothes and pants are also a necessity. Additionally, when going into a flooded basement, because of the presence of electrical wires and outlets, we always turn off the power supply in the whole structure to avoid electrocution.
In draining floodwater, we will be sure that the pump you are working with runs on a rechargeable source of energy, or from a power supply outside of the home or structure you are in. Perma-Seal will be certain to drain the water slowly, about a foot every eight to twelve hours to allow the walls and other fixtures to dry up and regain their durability.
