Residential Flooding - 60145
Floods can accumulate anywhere in your home. However, it's a most difficult problem to handle when it gathers in a person's basement.
Basements store everything from power tools, old home furniture and belongings, and even paint and other chemical based materials. Every one of these may mix in the flood water, creating more unsafe compounds. This is why it is always important for us to go in to floodwater with the appropriate gear. Waterproof and impenetrable gloves and footwear are of utmost importance. Long-sleeved clothes and trousers will also be a must. Additionally, when going into a flooded cellar, because of the presence of electrical wires and outlets, we always turn off the power supply in the whole structure to prevent electrocution.
In draining floodwater, we will make sure that the pump you are using runs on a rechargeable power source, or from a power supply outside the property 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 fittings to dry out and regain their sturdiness.
