A Sump Pump can Keep Your Basement Dry
When water collects in your basement or crawlspace, it can cause a lot of problems. Besides damaging the structure and items you have there, any unattended moisture can begin a mold/mildew problem that is tough to stop. When water in your basement is constantly a problem, a sump pump from Ackerman Plumbing can keep your Iowa City or Williamsburg area basement dry.
Avoid Water Damage
Any type of water collecting in your home is a problem, but basement/crawl space water is particularly troublesome.
You may not enter these areas often, so it can accumulate unnoticed.
Because it can go unnoticed, water below your home can start to damage the foundation, and help mold and mildew grow.
The mold and mildew below your home will then enter the air you breathe in your own home, which can cause respiratory problems and illness.
How Does a Sump Pump Work?
The pump is typically installed in the lowest part of your basement, and usually in a specifically constructed sump pit. Water naturally collects at the pit, this lowest point, and the pump removes it from the home by pumping it outside. Most often a sensor alerts the pump when moisture is present, causing it to start automatically.
Damage You May Deal With:
- Water damage
- Foundation damage
- Warped wood
- Damaged goods
- Subterranean mold and mildew
