The Advantages of Owning a Sump Pump

Chances are that you don’t give sump pumps a whole lot of thought. Perhaps you are not even aware of how important a sump pump is. This plumbing device is a pump designed to remove water build-up from basements and crawlspaces, safely depositing it through the wastewater system of your home. Sump pumps are ideal for homes where there is a high water table. Keep reading to learn more about the benefits of having a sump pump in your home.

PREVENTS FLOOD DAMAGE

Sump pumps primarily protect homeowners from the problems that a gradual build-up of water can cause. When heavy rains occur though, you could easily find yourself with knee-deep water in your basement, flooding and damaging just about everything inside. This can be especially detrimental if you store any valuables in your basement. A properly functioning sump pump will help you potentially avoid this disaster from occurring.

REDUCES THREAT OF MOLD OR MILDEW

When water collects in stagnant pools down in your basement, it creates continual dampness. This will eventually contribute to the growth of mold and mildew. This is damaging to your home, but is also damaging to your health and can cause allergy symptoms. A sump pump will keep your basement dry and thus keep mold and mildew from developing.

REDUCES RISK OF FIRE

Are you aware that flooding is one of the key causes of electrical fires? While it may seem counterintuitive, the job that the sump pump does could actually reduce the risk of fire, since the water from a flood can short-circuit the appliances in your basement. A sump pump helps to keep water from threatening equipment such as laundry machines, water heaters, heating systems, and more.
