Residential Flooding - Palos Hills, Illinois 60465
Floods can collect anywhere in your property. Even so, it is a most difficult issue to handle when it gathers in one's basement.
Basements store everything from tools, aged home furniture and possessions, and even paint and other chemical based materials. All these can mix in the flood water, forming more hazardous compounds. For this reason it will always be essential for us to go in to floodwater using the proper gear. Waterproof and impenetrable gloves and footwear are of utmost importance. Long-sleeved clothing and trousers will also be a must. Also, when going into a flooded basement, because of the presence of electric wires and outlets, we always switch 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 the home or structure you're 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 up and regain their sturdiness.
