Home Flooding - 60457
Floods can accumulate anywhere in your home. Even so, it's a most difficult issue to deal with when it gathers in one's basement.
Basements store anything from power tools, old furniture and belongings, and even paint and other chemical-based substances. All these may mix in the flood water, creating more dangerous substances. This is why it is always important for us to go in to floodwater using the proper gear. Water-resistant and impenetrable gloves and footwear are of utmost importance. Long sleeved clothes and pants are also a necessity. Additionally, when going into a flooded basement, because of the presence of electrical wires and outlets, we always switch off the power supply inside the whole structure to avoid electrocution.
In draining floodwater, we'll make sure that the pump you are using runs on a rechargeable source of energy, or from a power supply outside of the home 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 up and regain their sturdiness.
