Home Flooding - Ontarioville 60103
Floods can accumulate anywhere in your home. However, it's a most difficult issue to deal with when it gathers in a person's basement.
Basements store anything from power tools, old furniture and possessions, and even paint and other chemical based materials. Each one of these may mix in the flood water, creating more harmful compounds. This is why it is always important for us to go in to floodwater with all the proper gear. Waterproof and impenetrable gloves and footwear are of utmost importance. Long sleeved clothing and pants will also be a necessity. Additionally, when going into a flooded cellar, because of the presence of electric cables and outlets, we always turn off the power supply in the whole structure to prevent electrocution.
In draining floodwater, we'll make sure that the pump you are working with runs on a rechargeable power source, or from a power supply outside of the property or structure you're in. Perma-Seal will be certain to drain the water slowly, about a foot every eight to twelve hours to allow the walls and other fittings to dry out and regain their sturdiness.
