Basement Floods - 60411
Floods can accumulate anywhere in your property. However, it is a most difficult problem to deal with when it gathers in one's basement.
Basements store anything from power tools, aged furniture and possessions, and even paint and other chemical based materials. Every one of these can mix in the flood water, forming more dangerous substances. This is why it is always essential for us to go in to floodwater with the appropriate gear. Waterproof and impenetrable gloves and footwear are of utmost importance. Long-sleeved clothing and pants will also be a must. Also, when going into a flooded cellar, because of the presence of electrical wires and outlets, we always turn off the power supply inside the whole structure to avoid electrocution.
In draining floodwater, we will be sure that the pump you are using runs on a rechargeable power source, or from a power supply outside of the home or structure you're in. Perma-Seal will be sure to drain the water slowly, about a foot every eight to twelve hours to allow the walls and other fixtures to dry out and regain their durability.
