Benefits of Sump Pumps
Water in the basement can lead to expensive repairs, structural damage, and even have an impact on your family’s health. A wet basement can result in mold and mildew growth, which can contribute to certain health and breathing problems, especially for people with asthma, allergies, or other respiratory conditions.
Sump pumps offer benefits that include:
- Reducing water damage
- Preventing a flooded basement
- Decreasing mold growth
- Increasing property value
A properly functioning sump pump can help save thousands of dollars in water damage and provide the peace of mind of knowing that your home is protected. Sump pumps are designed to turn on when water levels begin to rise. The pump takes the water and moves it safely away from the basement and foundation of your home.
Signs of a Problem with a Sump Pump
Sump pumps, like all mechanical devices, can degrade and malfunction over time. Sump pump problems may result from age, poor design, cheap materials in the pump, and improper installation. Our technicians are skilled at servicing all types of sump pumps to ensure that your pump is ready for the next storm. You can help prevent failure by watching for signs of a pump problem and calling for immediate assistance.
Some of the most common sump pump problems include:
- A pump that is too small for the volume of water
- Clogs in the pump or valves
- Clogged or frozen discharge lines
- Loss of power
- Pump won’t turn off
If your home is located in a flood plain, frequently has water problems, or has flooded in the past, a properly working sump pump is one of the most essential pieces of equipment for your home. Our technicians can help ensure that your pump is working right, so you can avoid a disaster.
Be Ready for an Emergency
Unfortunately, many people are unaware of the problem with their sump pumps until they fail to work during a storm. Regular maintenance service allows our technicians to assess your pump to make sure it is functioning well. If we notice signs of a problem, we can perform the repair before the pump fails and help you avoid a flood in the basement.
If your pump isn’t working, you should not wait to address the problem. Because pump failure can lead to substantial water damage, you should always leave sump pump maintenance and repair to a professional. Our qualified technicians have decades of experience with sump pumps in Belmont and receive ongoing training to deliver the best possible service for every customer.
