Home Flooding - Fort Sheridan 60037
Floods can collect anywhere in your house. However, it's a most difficult issue to take care of when it gathers in a person's basement.
Basements store anything from tools, old home furniture and possessions, and even paint and other chemical-based materials. All these can mix in the flood water, creating more harmful compounds. For this reason it is always important for us to go in to floodwater using the appropriate gear. Water-resistant and impenetrable gloves and footwear are of utmost importance. Long sleeved clothes and pants are also a must. Also, when going into a flooded basement, because of the presence of electrical cables and outlets, we always turn off the power supply in the whole structure to prevent electrocution.
In draining floodwater, we'll be sure that the pump you are working with runs on a rechargeable power source, or from a power supply outside of the property or structure you're in. Perma-Seal will be sure to drain the water gradually, about a foot every eight to twelve hours to allow the walls and other fixtures to dry up and regain their durability.
