Help Your Sump Pump

10/14/2021 (Permalink)

Is your home prepared for the fall season? Do you have a backup plan in case your sump pump fails? Sometimes, it can start out as a leak or a bathroom mishap but will often lead to extensive problems. Sump pump failure can happen for a variety of reasons including power failure, stuck switches, overwhelmed pumps and more. When your sump pump fails, it will most likely lead to water damage to lower areas of your home. 

If your sump pump fails, do not attempt to clean up the water for yourself as this could lead to further damage. Instead, call SERVPRO of Glen Burnie and we will assess the water damage and determine the affected areas. For most cases, our trained professionals will use the latest equipment to locate the source of the damage, detect moisture levels in your home and effectively dry all affected areas to meet industry standards when possible.  

Severe weather storms mixed with power outages can often lead to one dreadful combination which typically results in flooded basements across Anne Arundel County. This is caused by the combination of heavy rainstorms and power outages which completely immobilizes the sump pump’s ability to pump and drain water. Avoid this problem by buying and installing a backup generator for your sump pump. If installed, your backup generator can be manually turned out to ensure your basement does not flood the next time you lose power.
