Now Is the Time to Check Your Sump Pump

Monday, April 2nd, 2018

flooded-houseWhen you think of spring, what comes to mind first? Warmer weather is one, but you probably think of rain as well. Spring is the rainiest of the seasons, and this can sometimes mean flooding danger that can create damage to homes. Having a sump pump installed in the basement of a house is one of the best ways to stop flooding damage.

If your home has a sump pump, the start of spring is the right time to check on it to make sure it will work. Because a sump pump only comes on occasionally during an emergency, it’s important to know if it can do its job. We’re going to help you give your sump pump a short inspection and test. You’ll find out ahead of time if you need repairs for the sump pump or if it’s time to replace an old one.
