Home Flooding - North Chicago 60064
Floods can collect anywhere in your property. Even so, it is a most difficult issue to handle when it gathers in one's basement.
Basements hold anything from tools, aged furniture and possessions, and even paint and other chemical based materials. Every one of these can mix in the flood water, forming more dangerous substances. For this reason 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 trousers are also a must. Also, when going into a flooded basement, because of the presence of electrical cables and outlets, we always switch off the power supply inside the whole structure to avoid electrocution.
In draining floodwater, we will 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 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 fixtures to dry out and regain their sturdiness.
