Home Floods - Citicorp, IL 60132
Floods can accumulate anywhere in your property. Even so, it is a most difficult issue to take care of when it gathers in a person's basement.
Basements hold anything from tools, aged furniture and possessions, and even paint and other chemical-based substances. Each one of these may mix in the flood water, forming more hazardous compounds. This is why it will always be essential for us to go in to floodwater with all the appropriate gear. Waterproof and impenetrable gloves and footwear are of utmost importance. Long-sleeved clothes and pants will also be 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 inside the whole structure to avoid electrocution.
In draining floodwater, we'll make sure that the pump you are using runs on a rechargeable source of energy, or from a power supply outside of the property or structure you're in. Perma-Seal will be sure to drain the water slowly but surely, about a foot every eight to twelve hours to allow the walls and other fittings to dry up and regain their sturdiness.
