Home Flooding - 60124
Floods can collect anywhere in your home. However, it is a most difficult issue to take care of when it gathers in a person's basement.
Basements store everything from tools, aged furniture and belongings, and even paint and other chemical-based materials. Every one of these may mix in the flood water, forming more hazardous substances. For this reason it will always be essential for us to go in to floodwater with all the appropriate gear. Waterproof and impenetrable gloves and footwear are of utmost importance. Long sleeved clothes and pants are also a must. Additionally, when going into a flooded cellar, because of the presence of electrical wires 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 source of energy, 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 fixtures to dry up and regain their durability.
