Home Floods - Ringwood, IL 60072
Floods can collect anywhere in your property. However, it is a most difficult issue to deal with when it gathers in one's basement.
Basements keep anything from tools, aged home furniture and belongings, and even paint and other chemical-based substances. All these may mix in the flood water, creating more harmful compounds. For this reason it is always important for us to go in to floodwater using the proper gear. Waterproof and impenetrable gloves and boots are of utmost importance. Long sleeved clothes and pants will also be a must. Also, when going into a flooded cellar, because of the presence of electrical cables and outlets, we always turn off the power supply inside the whole structure to prevent electrocution.
In draining floodwater, we will be 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 out and regain their sturdiness.
