Home Floods - 60030
Floods can gather anywhere in your house. Even so, it's a most difficult issue to deal with when it gathers in a person's basement.
Basements store anything from tools, aged furniture and belongings, and even paint and other chemical-based substances. Each one of these can 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 appropriate gear. Water-proof and impenetrable gloves and footwear are of utmost importance. Long sleeved clothing and pants are also a must. Also, when going into a flooded cellar, because of the presence of electrical wires and outlets, we always turn off the power supply inside the whole structure to prevent 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 of 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 durability.
