There are several benefits to installing a sump pump, including:
- Decreasing water damage in your basement
- Reducing the opportunity for mold or mildew to grow
- Keeping your basement humidity levels reasonable
- Improving air quality in your basement
- Protecting any appliances you keep in your basement
- Protecting the foundation of your home
- And helping prevent termite invasions
In addition to the cost of repairing water damage, a basement that has been affected by water can be a breeding ground for mold or bacteria. The longer mold or bacteria sits, the harder it is to remove, and the more dangerous it can be. You can take steps to prevent this from happening by installing a sump pump in your home.
What Is a Sump Pump?
Sump pumps are designed to take excess water that drains into your home and pump it back outside to avoid damage from flooding. A sump pump works by taking the water that is built up and pumping it away, into a sump pit. As water flows into your basement, the water collects in the pit. Then, the pump draws the water from the pit and takes it away from your basement where it can not get back into your home.
