Home Floods - Hoffman Est, Illinois 60010
Floods can gather anywhere in your house. However, it's a most difficult problem to deal with when it gathers in a person's basement.
Basements hold everything from tools, old home furniture and belongings, and even paint and other chemical-based materials. All these may mix in the flood water, forming more hazardous compounds. For this reason it is always important for us to go in to floodwater using the proper gear. Water-proof and impenetrable gloves and boots are of utmost importance. Long-sleeved clothing and pants will also be a must. Additionally, when going into a flooded basement, because of the presence of electrical wires and outlets, we always switch off the power supply inside the whole structure to avoid electrocution.
In draining floodwater, we'll be sure that the pump you are using runs on a rechargeable power source, or from a power supply outside of the property or structure you are 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 sturdiness.
