Home Flooding - 60411
Floods can gather anywhere in your house. However, it's a most difficult issue to take care of when it gathers in a person's basement.
Basements store everything from power tools, old home furniture and possessions, and even paint and other chemical-based substances. Each one of these can mix in the flood water, creating more dangerous substances. This is why it will always be important for us to go in to floodwater with the appropriate gear. Water-resistant and impenetrable gloves and footwear are of utmost importance. Long sleeved clothes and trousers are also a must. Additionally, when going into a flooded cellar, because of the presence of electric 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 property 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 durability.
