Get an Emergency Sump Pump System Installed Before a Damaging Event

Installing a sump pump is the single most sensible thing one can do to prevent flooding and subsequent water damage to their home. These pumps prevent flooding by collecting water buildup near a building and dispersing it away from the building. Here’s why installing an emergency sump pump system before a damaging event occurs is important.

Prevents Mold Growth

According to the Centers for Disease Control, breathing mold or mildew can drastically affect your health. Mold and mildew can cause throat irritation, nasal stuffiness, wheezing, skin, irritation, lung infections, and much more. If you wait until a damaging flood occurs in your home before installing a sump pump, you put yourself and your entire household at risk for health issues.


Protects Your Personal Belongings

For most people, their basement is a place where they store items. These items can be as simple as Christmas decorations to things more sentimental like baby pictures. Either way, a sump pump will protect your belongings by preventing flooding. Once installed, your sump pump will work both day-to-day and in an emergency event like a flood to protect your stuff 24/7.


Protects Your Home’s Foundation

Without a solid foundation, you don’t have a safe home. A sump pump is an affordable way to protect your home’s foundation and prevent expensive repairs. This is because an emergency sump pump system works tirelessly to remove water from your home’s foundation before it can seep into the soil around its foundation and the foundation itself and cause corrosion. 


Saves You Money in the Long Run

Although an emergency sump pump system is an initial investment, it can save you a lot of money in the future. That’s because, not only does it prevent flooding and expensive repairs, but it also saves you money on flood insurance. Your premiums could increase after a damaging event which means you’ll be paying for the consequences long after the initial repairs. Save money by installing an emergency sump pump system and prevent flooding in the first place.
