Home Floods - Ogden Dunes, Indiana 46368
Floods can collect anywhere in your house. Even so, it's a most difficult problem to take care of when it gathers in one's basement.
Basements store everything from power tools, old home furniture and possessions, and even paint and other chemical based substances. Every one of these may mix in the flood water, forming more unsafe compounds. For this reason it is always essential for us to go in to floodwater with all the proper gear. Water-resistant and impenetrable gloves and boots are of utmost importance. Long-sleeved clothes and pants will also be a must. Also, when going into a flooded cellar, 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 be sure that the pump you are working with runs on a rechargeable source of energy, or from a power supply outside of the property 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 fittings to dry up and regain their sturdiness.
