Home Floods - St Charles, IL 60174
Floods can gather anywhere in your home. However, it is a most difficult issue to deal with when it gathers in one's basement.
Basements keep everything from power tools, old home furniture and belongings, and even paint and other chemical based materials. All these may mix in the flood water, forming more harmful substances. This is why it will always be important for us to go in to floodwater with all the appropriate gear. Waterproof and impenetrable gloves and footwear are of utmost importance. Long sleeved clothes and trousers are also a necessity. Also, when going into a flooded basement, because of the presence of electrical cables and outlets, we always switch off the power supply inside the whole structure to avoid electrocution.
In draining floodwater, we'll be sure that the pump you are working with runs on a rechargeable source of energy, or from a power supply outside the home or structure you're in. Perma-Seal will be sure to drain the water gradually, about a foot every eight to twelve hours to allow the walls and other fixtures to dry out and regain their sturdiness.
