Basement Floods - 60012
Floods can accumulate anywhere in your house. Even so, it's a most difficult problem to deal with when it gathers in a person's basement.
Basements store anything from tools, old furniture and possessions, and even paint and other chemical based materials. All these can mix in the flood water, creating more hazardous compounds. For this reason it is always important for us to go in to floodwater using the appropriate gear. Waterproof and impenetrable gloves and boots are of utmost importance. Long-sleeved clothing and pants are also a must. Additionally, when going into a flooded basement, because of the presence of electric wires and outlets, we always turn off the power supply in the whole structure to prevent electrocution.
In draining floodwater, we will make sure that the pump you are using runs on a rechargeable power source, 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 out and regain their sturdiness.
