Residential Flooding - 60138
Floods can gather anywhere in your house. However, it is a most difficult issue to handle when it gathers in one's basement.
Basements keep everything from power tools, aged home furniture and belongings, and even paint and other chemical based substances. All these may mix in the flood water, creating more unsafe compounds. For this reason it will always be important for us to go in to floodwater with the proper gear. Water-resistant and impenetrable gloves and boots are of utmost importance. Long-sleeved clothes and trousers will also be a necessity. Additionally, when going into a flooded cellar, because of the presence of electric wires and outlets, we always switch off the power supply in the whole structure to prevent electrocution.
In draining floodwater, we will be sure that the pump you are working with runs on a rechargeable source of energy, or from a power supply outside the home 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 fittings to dry out and regain their durability.
