Home Flooding - Evanston, Illinois 60201
Floods can gather anywhere in your house. Even so, it is a most difficult problem to take care of when it gathers in one's basement.
Basements keep anything from power tools, old home furniture and belongings, and even paint and other chemical-based substances. Each one of these can mix in the flood water, forming more harmful compounds. For this reason it is always essential for us to go in to floodwater with all the appropriate gear. Water-resistant and impenetrable gloves and boots are of utmost importance. Long sleeved clothing and trousers 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 prevent electrocution.
In draining floodwater, we'll make sure that the pump you are working with runs on a rechargeable source of energy, or from a power supply outside the property or structure you're in. Perma-Seal will be certain to drain the water slowly but surely, about a foot every eight to twelve hours to allow the walls and other fittings to dry out and regain their sturdiness.
