Sump Pump Installation

Spring Weather Alert!

Doesn’t sound that ominous right? What troubles could warm weather and rainfall really bring to your home and family?

When the snow goes away, all that built up water has to go somewhere. Unfortunately, it may be seeping straight into your home’s basement which can cause heavy flooding. If your basement is not protected by a sump pump system, you’ll have a serious issue on your hands. Typical problems we’ve encountered with Lake Zurich home’s basements include:

Property Damage

If your basement is a storage area for valuables, the flooded water can cause some serious damage. Anything that has been placed on the floor is at risk, and even items sensitive to heavy moisture are at risk. In most cases, the value of these items can be unmeasurable, so don’t wait until it’s too late to take action.

Weakened Foundation and Support

Pooling stagnant water will wreak havoc on your basement. Wood supports or furniture that come in contact with the floor that gets exposed to heavy water can easily rot. Cracks in your floor or walls can be exaggerated by water getting into them, which in some cases can make the flood worse. In extreme cases this can be a major problem for your home, so address your flooded basement as soon as humanly possible.

Mold Growth

Stagnant water in your musty basement is a breeding ground for mold. As serious mold growth occurs, even breathing the air in your basement can cause those prone to asthma attacks or other breathing conditions can quickly fall ill. Should you find yourself in this situation, you need to call a professional immediately before attempting to address the issue yourself.
