Home Flooding - Highland Park, IL 60035
Floods can gather anywhere in your property. Even so, it is a most difficult problem to take care of when it gathers in a person's basement.
Basements keep anything from tools, aged 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 substances. This is why it is always essential for us to go in to floodwater with the appropriate gear. Waterproof and impenetrable gloves and footwear are of utmost importance. Long sleeved clothes and pants are also 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 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 source of energy, or from a power supply outside of the property or structure you're in. Perma-Seal will be sure 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 durability.
