Expert Sump Pump Services Help to Avoid Flooding

If your basement is at risk of flooding, a sump pump is an ideal safeguard. Though sump pumps are generally installed to prevent basement flooding, they can also be used to eliminate dampness and moisture, as sump pumps lower the water table under the foundation of your home.

You can rest assured your sump pump will be installed correctly the first time by an experienced and specialized plumber. After a thorough survey of your home’s foundation and construction, we will recommend the best product to secure your home and valuables against flooding.

At R.J. Graham Plumbing, Inc., we specialize in performing sump pump installations to help you protect your most valuable asset —your home — from water and structural damage, as well as toxic mold.

What is a water table? The water table is the “top” of the water that accumulates under the foundation of your home. When the water table reaches your basement flooring, flooding occurs. Therefore, a sump pump is an excellent preventative measure.

If you have experienced a flood in your basement, you understand just how much damage it can cause. Even small leaks and moisture can result in thousands of dollars worth of structural damage, as well as lead to hazardous mold growth. Flooding destroys walls, flooring, carpeting, furniture, personal and irreplaceable items, and fosters mildew and mold. Some molds can be toxic causing health problems, including respiratory failure.

While causes of flooding can vary from rainfall, melting snow, water line bursts, and drain overflows, there are measures to mitigate damage and eliminate water from low levels in your home.
