Residential Flooding - Schiller Park, Illinois 60131
Floods can gather anywhere in your home. However, it's a most difficult issue to take care of when it gathers in one's basement.
Basements hold anything from power tools, old furniture and belongings, and even paint and other chemical based substances. All these can mix in the flood water, forming more hazardous compounds. This is why it will always be essential for us to go in to floodwater with all the appropriate gear. Water-proof and impenetrable gloves and footwear are of utmost importance. Long sleeved clothes and trousers will also be a necessity. Also, when going into a flooded cellar, because of the presence of electrical wires and outlets, we always switch off the power supply inside the whole structure to avoid electrocution.
In draining floodwater, we will make sure that the pump you are working with runs on a rechargeable source of energy, or from a power supply outside of the home or structure you're 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 fixtures to dry up and regain their durability.
