You’ve heard the saying April showers bring May flowers, well you might also have heard your neighbors proudly talk about their sump pump, especially after heavy rain in the spring season. They are the ones saying how their sump pump kept their basement dry while other basements in the neighborhood were flooded with water. These homes are easy to pick out, they’re the ones with ruined belongings placed curbside for garbage collection.
Sump pumps are installed underneath the floor of basements and crawl spaces to collect and pump out groundwater before it threatens your home. With heavy rains, groundwater easily swells up through the cracks in basements or crawl spaces. The most vulnerable are homes built prior to 1980 and those located within flood zones.
Has your basement or crawl space ever experienced wetness or moisture or even mold? According to the Society of Home Inspectors, more than half of the homes in America experience this problem.
Homeowners with a basement or crawl space shouldn’t just know what a sump pump is, they should have one installed! Maybe you should consider having your own sump pump to protect your home and belongings against water damage.
