Residential Flooding - 60067
Floods can collect anywhere in your home. However, it is a most difficult problem to deal with when it gathers in a person's basement.
Basements hold anything from tools, old furniture and possessions, and even paint and other chemical-based materials. Every one of these may mix in the flood water, forming more harmful compounds. This is why it is always essential 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 electric wires 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 home or structure you're in. Perma-Seal will be sure to drain the water gradually, about a foot every eight to twelve hours to allow the walls and other fittings to dry out and regain their sturdiness.
