Home Floods - Jt Weeker-isc, 60290
Floods can gather anywhere in your home. However, it's 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 substances. Each one of these may mix in the flood water, creating more unsafe substances. For this reason it is always essential for us to go in to floodwater using the proper gear. Water-resistant and impenetrable gloves and footwear are of utmost importance. Long sleeved clothes and trousers will also be a necessity. Also, 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 prevent electrocution.
In draining floodwater, we will be sure that the pump you are working with runs on a rechargeable power source, or from a power supply outside the property or structure you are 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 fixtures to dry up and regain their durability.
