Home Floods - Inverness, IL 60067
Floods can collect anywhere in your home. Even so, it is a most difficult issue to handle when it gathers in one's basement.
Basements keep everything from tools, old home furniture and possessions, and even paint and other chemical based materials. Every one of these may mix in the flood water, forming more hazardous substances. This is why it will always be important for us to go in to floodwater with the appropriate gear. Waterproof and impenetrable gloves and boots are of utmost importance. Long-sleeved clothing and pants will also be a necessity. Additionally, when going into a flooded cellar, because of the presence of electrical wires 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 source of energy, or from a power supply outside the property or structure you're in. Perma-Seal will be sure to drain the water slowly, about a foot every eight to twelve hours to allow the walls and other fittings to dry up and regain their durability.
