Andy’s Pipe Dream has been installing Sump Pumps in homes since it’s’ inception. A sump pump is a small pump that we install in the lowest part of your basement or crawlspace. The sump pump will help keep the area under your house dry and will help prevent water damage in your basement from flooding.
The sump pump works by pumping the water out of the area and away from the house so the basement or crawlspace stays dry. A sump pump also removes groundwater that may accumulate around the outside of your home. If you experience a greater than normal water accumulation around your home after a heavy rain, a sump pump may save your family thousands of dollars in water damage from a flooded basement.
More than half of the homes in the U.S. suffer from below-ground wetness. Many more homeowners will have to deal with a flooded basement at some point inb their home ownership. It doesn't take much water to cause thousands of dollars in water damage. Without a sump pump, a moist basement can also lead to mold and mildew growth, bringing with it all its related health and breathing hazards. Mold and Mildew in wet basements may lead to respiratory infections, asthma, and allergic reactions. Allergic, asthmatic, and respiratory symptoms can include difficulty breathing, headache, fatigue, watery eyes, and congestion. This is an especially dangerous situation for younger children and older adults who may have immune systems that may be at a higher risk for these issues.
If you want to protect your home and basement from the potential of flooding, your family from the health hazards of mold and mildew and the potential of expensive water damage call us today and we can install a sump pump before the next heavy rain or spring thaw!
