Sump pumps play a vital role in keeping your property safe when inclement weather arises. In situations when excess moisture is suddenly introduced, such as during a storm, flood, or other disaster, then the sump pump is intended to kick on and start working to drain the moisture. However, there are certain situations in which a sump may fail in an emergency. For instance, if a power outage occurs or if there is more water than a sump pump can deal with, then the system may not work. Both of these scenarios happen often during storms, making addressing failed sump pumps a key component of storm restoration services.
When your sump pump fails, it can pose major risks to your home and health. A failing sump pump often results in flooding because the pump cannot drain excessive amounts of water away from the property. It’s important to always check after heavy rain or flooding that your sump pump has done its job. If there are signs of a failure, it’s imperative to contact restoration services to minimize damage. Left untreated, a failed sump pump can create major water damage and even lead to health hazards like toxic mold caused by moisture.
