If your home has a basement, it is critical to have a properly functioning sump pump as well as a backup system to ensure that ground water from rain and snow is managed efficiently. Without a good sump pump in place, you can expose your home to terrible smells and mold build up, as well as the following:
Flood damage: The gradual accumulation of water in the lowest points of your home can build up to a massive flooding event, which a sump pump can prevent. This can be devastating especially if you store valuable goods in your basement.
Increased fire risk: Flooding risks can actually increase your risk for fires as well. Floods are notorious for starting fires inside homes. Water build-up can cause appliances to short-circuit, including heating systems, heaters, and washing machines. These will not only damage appliances but can pose as a serious fire risk. A sump pump installation can prevent water from reaching household appliances.
Mold and mildew: The consistent dampness that is typical of unkempt basements as a result of stagnant water makes it the ideal breeding ground for mold and mildew. These can destroy the interior of your home and cause health problems to anyone who is exposed. Having a sump pump installation will ensure that your basement is kept dry and safe from mold and mildew.
