Prevention is obviously a primary consideration.

Residential Flooding - Lake Barrington-shores, 60010
Floods can accumulate anywhere in your home. Even so, it's a most difficult issue to take care of when it gathers in one's basement.
Basements store anything from power tools, aged furniture and possessions, and even paint and other chemical based materials. Each one of these can mix in the flood water, forming more hazardous compounds. This is why it will always be essential for us to go in to floodwater with the appropriate 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 cables and outlets, we always turn off the power supply inside the whole structure to prevent electrocution.
In draining floodwater, we will make sure that the pump you are using 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 fittings to dry out and regain their durability.
