Sump pumps and rainwater damage
We have had a fair amount of rain these last couple of weeks here in Decatur, and we have received several calls from homeowners dealing with flooded basements and crawl spaces. In some of those cases, the reason why their homes had sustain water damage was that the sump pump had not been working.
When was the last you inspected your sump pump? Most manufacturers recommend inspecting the unit every couple of months, especially if there is a big storm or heavy rain coming, to make sure the sump pump is working properly.
A sump pump is a device installed in the lowest part of a basement or crawlspace to help prevent this space from flooding and keep it as dry as possible, by keeping the water away from the structure.
SERVPRO of Decatur has the experience, qualifications, and necessary knowledge to help homeowners deal with this type of water damage.
