Home Flooding - Glenview, IL 60026
Floods can accumulate anywhere in your property. Even so, it is a most difficult issue to take care of when it gathers in one's basement.
Basements hold everything from tools, old home furniture and belongings, and even paint and other chemical based substances. Each one of these can mix in the flood water, creating more hazardous compounds. This is why it is always important 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 pants are also a must. Additionally, when going into a flooded basement, because of the presence of electrical cables 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 source of energy, or from a power supply outside the home or structure you're in. Perma-Seal will be certain to drain the water slowly, about a foot every eight to twelve hours to allow the walls and other fittings to dry out and regain their durability.
