Home Flooding - Hoffman Est, Illinois 60192
Floods can accumulate anywhere in your house. Even so, it's a most difficult problem to handle when it gathers in a person's basement.
Basements hold everything from power tools, aged furniture and belongings, and even paint and other chemical based substances. Each one of these can mix in the flood water, creating more dangerous substances. For this reason it will always be important for us to go in to floodwater with the proper gear. Water-resistant and impenetrable gloves and footwear are of utmost importance. Long sleeved clothing and trousers will also be 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 avoid electrocution.
In draining floodwater, we will make sure that the pump you are using runs on a rechargeable source of energy, or from a power supply outside the property 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 out and regain their sturdiness.
