Prevention is obviously a primary thing to consider.

Residential Flooding - Shelby 46377
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 keep everything from tools, old home furniture and belongings, and even paint and other chemical-based materials. Every one of these can mix in the flood water, forming more unsafe substances. For this reason it is always important for us to go in to floodwater with the appropriate gear. Water-resistant and impenetrable gloves and footwear are of utmost importance. Long sleeved clothing and trousers will also be a necessity. Also, when going into a flooded basement, because of the presence of electrical cables and outlets, we always turn off the power supply inside the whole structure to avoid electrocution.
In draining floodwater, we will make sure that the pump you are using runs on a rechargeable power source, or from a power supply outside the home or structure you're in. Perma-Seal will be sure to drain the water slowly, about a foot every eight to twelve hours to allow the walls and other fixtures to dry out and regain their sturdiness.
