Basement Floods - Goodland, IN 47948
Floods can collect anywhere in your home. Even so, it is a most difficult problem to take care of when it gathers in a person's basement.
Basements keep everything from tools, old home furniture and possessions, and even paint and other chemical-based materials. Each one of these can mix in the flood water, creating more hazardous compounds. For this reason it will always be important for us to go in to floodwater with the appropriate gear. Water-proof and impenetrable gloves and boots are of utmost importance. Long-sleeved clothes and trousers will also be a must. Also, when going into a flooded cellar, because of the presence of electric cables and outlets, we always turn off the power supply in the whole structure to avoid electrocution.
In draining floodwater, we'll 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 are 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 fittings to dry out and regain their durability.
