Basement Floods - 46401
Floods can collect anywhere in your house. Even so, it's a most difficult issue to deal with when it gathers in one's basement.
Basements store anything from tools, aged home furniture and belongings, and even paint and other chemical-based materials. Every one of these may mix in the flood water, forming more harmful compounds. For this reason it is always essential for us to go in to floodwater with the proper gear. Water-resistant and impenetrable gloves and footwear are of utmost importance. Long-sleeved clothes and pants will also be a must. Also, when going into a flooded basement, because of the presence of electric cables and outlets, we always switch off the power supply in the whole structure to avoid 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're in. Perma-Seal will be certain 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 durability.
