Residential Flooding - Hoffman Estates, IL 60169
Floods can collect anywhere in your property. Even so, it is a most difficult issue to deal with when it gathers in one's basement.
Basements keep everything from power tools, old home furniture and possessions, and even paint and other chemical-based substances. All these can mix in the flood water, forming more unsafe compounds. For this reason it will always be essential for us to go in to floodwater using the appropriate gear. Water-resistant and impenetrable gloves and boots are of utmost importance. Long sleeved clothing and pants are also a necessity. Additionally, when going into a flooded cellar, because of the presence of electrical wires and outlets, we always turn 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 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 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.
