How to Boost Family Safety & Prevent Basement Floods
Burst pipes, hot water tank failure, leaky basement windows, drainage failure, and debris in the gutters are common causes of basement floods. Basement floods are always unexpected, and very few people prepare for the cost of the repairs and replacement of property. Floods can destroy photos, memorabilia, and other irreplaceable personal items stored in the basement and other costly but replaceable goods. It is disheartening to consider losing precious keepsakes from an avoidable flood.
Also, consider how undetected and excessive moisture can ultimately lead to molds. Mold and mildew are types of fungus that release spores that can get into the airways of your home, causing coughing, wheezing, throat irritation, skin problems, and irritated eyes.
Scheduling a sump pump installation is the simplest and safest way to avoid excess moisture and basement flooding disasters. It is the best solution that takes the worry out of the inevitable basement floods.

Advantages of a Sump Pump Installation
Wet basement repair costs can be steep.
Emergencies are never inexpensive. Yet when the basement floods, there is no time to shop around for the best price, so the situation necessitates paying whatever it cost to get the job done. With a bit of foresight, you can avoid unnecessary costs and heartaches by planning to have a sump pump installed.
There are two types of sump pumps available.
Either the pedestal or submersible sump pump is an ideal solution for water leakage and flooding. Select the pedestal pump for situations where the sump pump pit is narrow or shallow. They require less space, and the motor tends to last longer since it is not submerged in water. The submersible pumps are more powerful and permanent as they sit at the bottom of a sump hole. They also take up less space and resist overheating issues. Our specialists will help you make the best decision.
Sump pump maintenance is routinely simple.
Whether you have a pedestal pump or a submersible pump, you can keep your pump in perfect condition by following a few basic guidelines. Check the pump annually if there have been no floods and more often if prior flooding has occurred. Ensure there are no blockages by cleaning out the sump, greasing, or oiling the bearings if the particular model requires, and then checking the power cord for power. If everything is in working order, that is all the maintenance it requires.
