If you have a basement or crawlspace under your home, then you have a flood risk. Whether your basement or crawlspace has flooded with a significant amount of water in the past or you just get a small amount of water periodically, this moisture can damage your foundation and allow mold and mildew to grow in your home. Although plumbers can help with water damage after the issue, a sump pump can help you avoid the problem in the first place. A sump pump, which can be installed by your plumber, will remove water and drain it away from your home to protect your property.
