Residential Flooding - Michigan City, IN 46360
Floods can accumulate anywhere in your house. However, it is a most difficult issue to take care of when it gathers in one's basement.
Basements keep everything from tools, aged furniture and possessions, and even paint and other chemical-based substances. All these can mix in the flood water, forming more dangerous substances. This is why it will always be important for us to go in to floodwater with all the appropriate gear. Water-proof and impenetrable gloves and boots are of utmost importance. Long-sleeved clothing and trousers are also a must. Also, when going into a flooded basement, 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 will make sure that the pump you are using runs on a rechargeable source of energy, or from a power supply outside the property or structure you're 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 out and regain their durability.
