Basement Floods - Schaumburg, IL 60179
Floods can gather anywhere in your home. Even so, it is a most difficult problem to deal with when it gathers in a person's basement.
Basements hold everything from power tools, old home furniture and belongings, and even paint and other chemical-based substances. Each one of these may mix in the flood water, creating more harmful compounds. This is why it is always important for us to go in to floodwater using the proper gear. Water-resistant and impenetrable gloves and footwear are of utmost importance. Long-sleeved clothing and pants will also be a must. Additionally, when going into a flooded basement, because of the presence of electric wires and outlets, we always switch off the power supply in the whole structure to prevent electrocution.
In draining floodwater, we will make sure that the pump you are working with runs on a rechargeable power source, or from a power supply outside the property or structure you are 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.
