Is your home your safe haven, an escape from a hard day at work? Wouldn’t it be nice to keep it that way for the years to come? For this to be a reality, you need to think about the well-being of the house and keep investing in it to eliminate all chances of the little household disasters that may occur over the years.
Basements of the house are the least liked places, but maintenance and cleanliness of them must be on your list of things-to-do. Ignoring the basement can be the root cause of problems around the house. Most water damage issues occur in the basement. If you use your basement as a storage unit, then you can kiss goodbye to all your things. If not your possessions, the collected water encourages mold growth that in the long run can be a serious health hazard in the house. Better safe than sorry, right?
If you want to fight water damage issues in the basement head on, then you need to install a sump pump. Most of the time, this can prove to be a life saver. But it too comes with a set of its own problems. For example, when the sump pump stops working, you have a new crisis to worry about. Knowledge is key and you need to be aware of all the bumps you can hit along the road. Here are some common problems that may arise with a basement sump pump:
