Basement Floods - Crystal Lake 60014
Floods can accumulate anywhere in your home. Even so, it is a most difficult issue to handle when it gathers in one's basement.
Basements keep everything from power tools, old home furniture and possessions, and even paint and other chemical based materials. Every one of these can mix in the flood water, creating more hazardous substances. For this reason it will always be important for us to go in to floodwater with all the proper gear. Waterproof and impenetrable gloves and footwear are of utmost importance. Long sleeved clothing and trousers are also a must. 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 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're 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 fittings to dry up and regain their durability.
