Residential Flooding - Antioch 43793
Floods can collect anywhere in your house. However, it's a most difficult issue to deal with when it gathers in a person's basement.
Basements keep everything from power tools, old home furniture and possessions, and even paint and other chemical based materials. All these may mix in the flood water, forming more dangerous substances. For this reason it will always be essential for us to go in to floodwater with the appropriate gear. Waterproof and impenetrable gloves and boots are of utmost importance. Long sleeved clothing and pants will also be a necessity. Also, when going into a flooded basement, because of the presence of electric cables and outlets, we always switch off the power supply in the whole structure to prevent electrocution.
In draining floodwater, we will make sure that the pump you are working with runs on a rechargeable source of energy, or from a power supply outside of the home 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 sturdiness.
