Home Flooding - North Chicago 60086
Floods can accumulate anywhere in your home. Even so, it's a most difficult issue to deal with when it gathers in a person's basement.
Basements keep everything from power tools, aged furniture and belongings, and even paint and other chemical based substances. 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 using the appropriate gear. Water-proof and impenetrable gloves and footwear are of utmost importance. Long-sleeved clothes and trousers are also a necessity. Also, when going into a flooded cellar, because of the presence of electric wires and outlets, we always turn off the power supply inside the whole structure to prevent electrocution.
In draining floodwater, we'll be sure that the pump you are working with runs on a rechargeable power source, or from a power supply outside of the home or structure you are in. Perma-Seal will be sure to drain the water slowly, about a foot every eight to twelve hours to allow the walls and other fixtures to dry up and regain their durability.
