Sump Pumps and Battery Backup Sump Pumps for the Greater Indianapolis Area
Water damage poses to be an expensive threat to your home, especially when there is heavy rain. A reliable sump pump can prevent flooded basements and crawl spaces which not only protects your home’s structure and contents but also helps you avoid problems with mold and mildew that thrive in damp areas.
A sump pump keeps your crawl space or basement dry by automatically pumping and channeling water away from the foundation when the ground is saturated with water. If the sump pump fails, your basement can flood, causing expensive damage to your home, furnishing, and keepsakes that can’t be replaced like family photos. It’s important to have a reliable sump pump that can help protect your home when the weather is at is rainiest.
Sump pumps are installed in your basement or crawlspace and are designed to help keep the area dry and free of flooding. Sump pumps are installed in sump pits, and they pump water out of the pit and away from your home, keeping your basement and crawl space dry. The water is absorbed into the ground away from your home.
According to the American Society of Home Inspectors, more than 60% of American homes suffer from underground moisture. Many of us are likely to experience a flooded basement or crawl space at some time, and it doesn’t take much water to cause thousands of dollars in damage to the structure of your home and your belongings. Sadly, water damage can affect many things in homes that have sentimental value and are unable to be replaced or repaired.
