Home Flooding - Northbrook, IL 60065
Floods can gather anywhere in your property. Even so, it's a most difficult problem to take care of when it gathers in one's basement.
Basements store everything from power tools, aged furniture and possessions, and even paint and other chemical-based substances. Each one of these may mix in the flood water, forming more dangerous substances. For this reason it is always important for us to go in to floodwater using the proper gear. Water-proof and impenetrable gloves and footwear are of utmost importance. Long-sleeved clothes and pants are also a necessity. Also, when going into a flooded cellar, because of the presence of electric cables and outlets, we always switch off the power supply in the whole structure to avoid 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 of the home or structure you are 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 fittings to dry out and regain their sturdiness.
