4 Benefits of Owning a Sump Pump

A sump pump is a kind of pump that removes water build-up in basements and other crawlspaces by depositing it into a building’s waste water system. They are useful for any home or building located somewhere with a high water table. Sump pumps require professional help to install, but are simple to operate once its hooked up to your drainage system. Call Gold Star Service, and we can help you install a sump pump and protect your home from water damage.

 

Here are four of the benefits you can expect from installing a sump pump.

 

  1. Prevent flooding damage. While sump pumps are good at dealing gradual water build-up, they really shine when dealing with large-scale flooding. If torrential rains cause your basement to flood, you could easily have over a foot of flooding. This could be disastrous if you store anything valuable in the basement. Fortunately, a working sump pump can prevent this problem.
  2. Reduced mold and mildew. If you have stagnant puddles of water and constant dampness in your basement, it’s a perfect breeding ground for molds and mildew to grow. Not only can this damage building materials and other goods, but it can also cause various health problems. Having a sump pump can keep your basement dry and avoid heavy mold and mildew growth.
  3. Increase property value. This may be an obvious advantage, but homeowners like it when their homes, current or future, are protected from damage. Installing a sump pump in your home can help maintain its value and keep the structure of the house from being compromised.
  4. Reduced fire risk. “Less fire” may sound like a strange benefit for owning something that keeps your basement dry. However, flooding is a big cause of electrical fires. The water that builds up in your basement can cause short circuits in any appliances you might have down there, like washing machines and heating systems. Even if the water doesn’t cause a fire, your appliances will be ruined. A sump pump can protect your appliances from water damage and electrical fires caused by said damage.
