If you’ve ever experienced a flooded basement, you already know how much damage it can cause. Even a small amount of water leaking into your basement can cause thousands of dollars in damage, not to mention hazardous mold and mildew growth.
If your basement is at risk of flooding, a sump pump is generally considered to be the best safeguard. Anyone who has a sump pump also needs a battery backup sump pump. At some point the main pump will fail as a result of a power outage, main pump failure, float switch failure or the inability to keep up with the incoming water capacity. A backup pump is an inexpensive insurance policy eliminating the headaches and cost associated with a flooded basement.
Though sump pumps are generally installed to prevent basement flooding, they can also be used to ameliorate dampness by lowering the water table under the foundation.

After a survey of your home’s environment and construction, we will recommend the best product to secure your home and belongings against water damage.
