Residential Flooding - Hanover Park, IL 60133
Floods can accumulate anywhere in your home. Even so, it is a most difficult problem to handle when it gathers in a person's basement.
Basements keep anything from tools, aged furniture and possessions, and even paint and other chemical based substances. Each one of these can mix in the flood water, forming more unsafe compounds. This is why it is always important for us to go in to floodwater with the proper gear. Water-proof and impenetrable gloves and boots are of utmost importance. Long sleeved clothes and pants are also a must. Additionally, when going into a flooded basement, because of the presence of electrical wires 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 using runs on a rechargeable power source, or from a power supply outside the home 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 up and regain their sturdiness.
