Home Floods - Kirkland, IL 60146
Floods can gather anywhere in your house. Even so, it's a most difficult issue to handle when it gathers in a person's basement.
Basements hold everything from power tools, old home furniture and belongings, and even paint and other chemical-based materials. Each one of these may mix in the flood water, creating more harmful substances. This is why it is always essential for us to go in to floodwater using the proper gear. Water-resistant and impenetrable gloves and boots are of utmost importance. Long-sleeved clothes and pants will also be a must. Additionally, when going into a flooded cellar, because of the presence of electrical cables and outlets, we always switch off the power supply inside 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 of 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 fixtures to dry up and regain their durability.
