Basement Floods - 60160
Floods can gather anywhere in your property. Even so, it's a most difficult problem to deal with when it gathers in a person's basement.
Basements keep anything from tools, old home furniture and possessions, and even paint and other chemical based materials. All these may mix in the flood water, creating more dangerous substances. For this reason it will always be important for us to go in to floodwater with all the appropriate 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 cellar, because of the presence of electrical cables and outlets, we always turn off the power supply inside the whole structure to avoid electrocution.
In draining floodwater, we'll make 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 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.
