Sump Pumps and Battery Backup Sump Pumps for the Greater Louisville Area
Water damage is an expensive threat to your home, especially when it is raining heavily. A reliable sump pump can prevent flooded basements and crawl spaces which not only protects your home’s structure and contents but helps you avoid problems with mold and mildew that thrive in damp areas.
A sump pump keeps your basement or crawl space 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.
A sump pump is installed in your basement or crawlspace and is 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 below-ground wetness. 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, many things in homes have sentimental value and are unable to be replaced or repaired.
