Home Flooding - 60164
Floods can collect anywhere in your property. However, it is a most difficult problem to handle when it gathers in one's basement.
Basements keep everything from tools, aged home furniture and belongings, and even paint and other chemical based substances. All these may mix in the flood water, forming more dangerous compounds. For this reason it will always be essential for us to go in to floodwater with the proper gear. Water-proof and impenetrable gloves and footwear are of utmost importance. Long sleeved clothing and pants are also a must. Additionally, 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 avoid electrocution.
In draining floodwater, we'll make sure that the pump you are working with runs on a rechargeable source of energy, or from a power supply outside the home or structure you're in. Perma-Seal will be sure to drain the water gradually, about a foot every eight to twelve hours to allow the walls and other fittings to dry out and regain their durability.
