Basement Floods - Barrington Hills, IL 60021
Floods can accumulate anywhere in your house. Even so, it's a most difficult issue to handle when it gathers in a person's basement.
Basements hold everything from tools, aged furniture and belongings, and even paint and other chemical based materials. Each one of these can mix in the flood water, forming more hazardous substances. For this reason it is always important for us to go in to floodwater using the appropriate gear. Water-proof and impenetrable gloves and footwear are of utmost importance. Long sleeved clothing and pants will also be a must. Also, when going into a flooded basement, because of the presence of electrical cables 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 the home or structure you're in. Perma-Seal will be certain to drain the water slowly but surely, about a foot every eight to twelve hours to allow the walls and other fittings to dry out and regain their durability.
