Home Floods - Mundelein 60060
Floods can collect anywhere in your house. However, it is a most difficult issue to take care of when it gathers in one's basement.
Basements keep anything from tools, old home furniture and belongings, and even paint and other chemical-based materials. Every one of these may mix in the flood water, forming more unsafe compounds. This is why it will always be essential for us to go in to floodwater using the proper gear. Water-proof and impenetrable gloves and boots are of utmost importance. Long-sleeved clothes and pants are also a must. Additionally, when going into a flooded cellar, because of the presence of electric wires and outlets, we always switch off the power supply in the whole structure to prevent electrocution.
In draining floodwater, we will be sure that the pump you are using runs on a rechargeable power source, or from a power supply outside the home or structure you're in. Perma-Seal will be sure to drain the water slowly but surely, about a foot every eight to twelve hours to allow the walls and other fixtures to dry out and regain their sturdiness.
