Sump Pump 101

Keep Your Home Safe from Flooding

Some houses have a problem with water building up at the foundation because of the nature of the land and poor drainage. This often happens at the basement level or in crawlspaces. A sump pump is a device that is designed to pump out this water so that your house will not be sitting in the water.

Flood Damaged HomeBenefits Of Using A Sump Pump

When there is constant moisture around the house, there will be an increased risk of the house developing mildew and mold. This can lead to health problems for the people living inside the house. If your basement feels cold and damp all the time, and some people in your family seems to have allergies all the time, there is probably water beneath the house that is not draining away. When you use a sump pump, you can remove that water, keep your house dry, and prevent the mold problem.

A house that is in contact with water all the time will result in major damage to the foundation. Water that is sitting beneath your house may eventually seep inside without your detection. If you have tools and equipment in the basement, they will rust much faster. This can cause you thousands of dollars in damages to your tools.

Not only that, but if you have electrical wiring on the basement floor there is a risk of an electrical fire. A sump pump will keep your basement dry and your home safe.

Water that does not drain away from the house will gradually accumulate from all the rain that you get. Eventually, it will cause a flood. It only takes one major storm to cause that flood to happen. Not only will you have a mess to clean up, but you will have thousands of dollars of property damage to deal with. When you use a sump pump, you can prevent this disaster.
