Home Flooding - Waukegan, Illinois 60087
Floods can gather anywhere in your home. Even so, it's a most difficult issue to deal with 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 can mix in the flood water, forming more dangerous substances. This is why it will always be essential for us to go in to floodwater using the proper gear. Waterproof and impenetrable gloves and footwear are of utmost importance. Long sleeved clothing and trousers will also be a must. Also, when going into a flooded cellar, because of the presence of electric wires and outlets, we always switch off the power supply inside the whole structure to prevent electrocution.
In draining floodwater, we will be sure that the pump you are using runs on a rechargeable source of energy, or from a power supply outside of the home or structure you are in. Perma-Seal will be certain to drain the water slowly but surely, about a foot every eight to twelve hours to allow the walls and other fixtures to dry out and regain their durability.
