Home Flooding - Evanston 60204
Floods can collect anywhere in your property. However, it's a most difficult problem to take care of when it gathers in one's basement.
Basements store anything from power tools, old home furniture and possessions, and even paint and other chemical based materials. All these can mix in the flood water, creating more unsafe compounds. For this reason it will always be essential for us to go in to floodwater using the appropriate gear. Waterproof and impenetrable gloves and footwear are of utmost importance. Long sleeved clothing and trousers will also be a necessity. Also, when going into a flooded basement, because of the presence of electrical wires and outlets, we always switch off the power supply inside the whole structure to prevent electrocution.
In draining floodwater, we'll be sure that the pump you are using runs on a rechargeable power source, or from a power supply outside the home or structure you are 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 out and regain their sturdiness.
