Basement Floods - Hammond 46327
Floods can collect anywhere in your home. Even so, it's a most difficult issue to deal with when it gathers in one's basement.
Basements store anything from tools, old home furniture and belongings, and even paint and other chemical-based materials. Each one of these can mix in the flood water, creating more hazardous substances. This is why it is always essential for us to go in to floodwater with all the appropriate gear. Waterproof 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 basement, because of the presence of electrical wires and outlets, we always switch off the power supply in the whole structure to prevent 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 of the property or structure you are in. Perma-Seal will be sure to drain the water gradually, about a foot every eight to twelve hours to allow the walls and other fittings to dry up and regain their durability.
