As a homeowner, protecting your property from water damage is likely to be high on your priority list – particularly if you reside in a flood-prone area. During a flood, one of the most vulnerable areas of your home is your basement, where damage can be devastating. With the capacity to pump out 2650 gallons of water every hour, Sump Pumps are an innovative method of not only removing flood water, but also of reducing the potential for water damage. Our expert sump pump installation service here at Stormguard Floodplan can bring a number of benefits for your home.
How Do Sump Pumps Work?
Installed into the basement or cellar of a property, a sump pump is designed to keep the area beneath the building dry, and prevent it from flooding. During installation, a specially constructed ‘sump pit’ will be created in your home by our installers, which is intended to blend in naturally to the surroundings of the room. Any excess water will then flow into this sump pit – where before it can reach the rest of your basement, the sump pump will automatically pump out the water, and away from your property.
The Benefits of Sump Pumps
However water enters your home, whether through drains or ground water flooding, sump pumps are extremely effective. Even in the case of storm surges or torrential rain, they can prevent the chance of a basement flood. In addition to this, sump pumps are a proven way to reduce the build up of stagnant water and dampness in your cellar, keeping your basement dry and reducing the likelihood of mould and mildew growth. For those with a functioning basement room which contains electrical appliances or furniture, keeping the space free from water is essential – fortunately, sump pumps are the ideal solution.
