Basement Floods - 60467
Floods can collect anywhere in your house. However, it is a most difficult issue to deal with when it gathers in one's basement.
Basements store anything from power tools, aged home furniture and possessions, and even paint and other chemical-based substances. All these can mix in the flood water, creating more unsafe compounds. For this reason it is always important for us to go in to floodwater with the appropriate gear. Water-resistant and impenetrable gloves and boots are of utmost importance. Long sleeved clothes and pants are also a must. Additionally, 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 prevent electrocution.
In draining floodwater, we will make sure that the pump you are using runs on a rechargeable power source, or from a power supply outside the property or structure you are in. Perma-Seal will be certain to drain the water gradually, about a foot every eight to twelve hours to allow the walls and other fixtures to dry up and regain their durability.
