sticky_iconAre you considering purchasing and installing a sump pump for your home? Great choice! But first, it’s crucial to know what a sump pump is – and why it is important.

Essentially, a sump pump is a specially-designed pump that efficiently removes water from your basement and crawlspaces. There are many benefits when it comes to using sump pumps; they are an integral part of any home.

First, sump pumps help to effectively prevent mold and mildew growth. Let’s face the facts: our basements can be damp, dank places that are prone to moisture. In any home, no matter how clean you are, the basement is basically a petri dish for mold and mildew to flourish. But, this doesn’t have to be the case – a sump pump can help keep your basement clean and dry, which will effectively prevent mildew and mold from forming in the first place.

In addition, sump pumps can help reduce repair costs. The truth is that water damage can cost buckets of cash to repair! If you want to help ensure that you don’t rack up repair-related costs, having a sump pump is a great way to go. Though installation costs for this type of system can be hefty, you’ll make up for that cost, ten times over, in terms of avoiding the steep cost of water damage.

Sump pumps also prevent flood damage. If your basement floods, having a sump pump can really come in handy! Why? Because sump pumps can help to deal with large-scale flooding by pumping out water and keeping your space dry.
