If you are concerned about your basement flooding the next time it rains, it's time to consider installing a sump pump. Not all homes need sump pumps, which is why you may want to ask the advice of our Rockford plumbers. Sump pumps can prevent basement water damage, mold, and mildew so you don't have to budget for expensive repairs the next time it rains hard.
If you notice puddles on the basement floor, this is a sign that the water table in your neighborhood could be higher than the foundation of your house. Flooding may also be an issue if your home was built at the bottom of a hill or in a region where snow melts quickly in the spring. Our Rockford sump pump plumber will be able to determine if your basement needs a sump pump to stay dry.
A sump pump is installed in the lowest point of your basement. When it rains, water seeps through the soil or is directed by drains until it enters a special pit designed for your sump pump. The sump pump then pumps this water out of the pit and away from your home. Prevent water damaged basements or crawlspaces by installing a sump pump.
The Rockford plumbing contractors at Bergsma Plumbing LLC always strive to help homeowners prevent water damage through sump pump systems. If you are interested in learning more about sump pump installation, give us a call at (616) 813-5219.
