Residential Flooding - 60016
Floods can collect anywhere in your house. Even so, it is a most difficult issue to take care of when it gathers in a person's basement.
Basements keep anything from power tools, old home furniture and belongings, and even paint and other chemical based substances. Every one of these may mix in the flood water, forming more dangerous compounds. This is why it will always be essential for us to go in to floodwater with all the proper gear. Waterproof and impenetrable gloves and boots are of utmost importance. Long sleeved clothes and pants will also be a must. Additionally, when going into a flooded basement, because of the presence of electric cables and outlets, we always turn off the power supply in the whole structure to avoid 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 the property or structure you are 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.
