The Purpose of a Sump Pump

December 15, 2015

Does your basement flood after a large storm? Is it always damp due to moisture underground? Along with leaving your basement feeling musky, clammy, and uncomfortable all around, excess moisture can also quickly lead to mold, mildew, and a number of other bacterial problems that will negatively affect your home, your possessions, and even your health.

Leaking and flooding in your basement or crawlspace can lead to foundation damage over time, which will in turn lead to costly repairs in the future. If the flooding problem is not addressed right away, then these resulting consequences will only continue to occur and worsen over time.

To reliably fix the problem, ensuring that basement flooding will be a thing of the past, consider looking into a professional sump pump installation. Sump pumps work by gathering any excess water in your home into a ditch (also known as a sump pit) that has been installed in your basement floor. Once the water hits a predetermined level, the sump pump will automatically dispose of the water by transferring it out of your home into a local sewer drain. This will help to not only protect your home, but also to improve its overall aesthetical and nominal value.
