Home Flooding - ,
Floods can collect anywhere in your property. However, it's a most difficult issue to deal with when it gathers in one's basement.
Basements hold anything from power tools, aged home furniture and belongings, and even paint and other chemical based materials. Each one of these may mix in the flood water, creating more hazardous compounds. For this reason it is always essential for us to go in to floodwater with the proper gear. Waterproof and impenetrable gloves and boots are of utmost importance. Long sleeved clothes and trousers will also be a must. Additionally, when going into a flooded cellar, 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 working with 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, about a foot every eight to twelve hours to allow the walls and other fixtures to dry up and regain their sturdiness.
