Residential Flooding - Hillside, Illinois 60163
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 hold anything from power tools, old home furniture and belongings, and even paint and other chemical-based substances. Each one of these may mix in the flood water, creating more dangerous substances. For this reason it is always essential for us to go in to floodwater with the appropriate gear. Water-resistant and impenetrable gloves and boots are of utmost importance. Long-sleeved clothing and trousers are also a necessity. Additionally, when going into a flooded basement, because of the presence of electric cables and outlets, we always switch off the power supply inside the whole structure to avoid electrocution.
In draining floodwater, we'll make sure that the pump you are using runs on a rechargeable source of energy, or from a power supply outside of the property or structure you are in. Perma-Seal will be sure 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.
