Home Flooding - Hoffman Estates, Illinois 60173
Floods can accumulate 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 everything from power tools, old home furniture and possessions, and even paint and other chemical based substances. Each one of these can mix in the flood water, creating more unsafe compounds. For this reason it will always be essential for us to go in to floodwater using the proper gear. Water-proof and impenetrable gloves and footwear are of utmost importance. Long-sleeved clothing and pants are also a must. Also, when going into a flooded basement, because of the presence of electric cables and outlets, we always switch off the power supply in the whole structure to prevent 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'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 fixtures to dry out and regain their durability.
