Sump Pump Failure
SERVPRO of East Evansville knows, when a sump pumps fails, it’s often during a heavy rain period. This is due when the pump is working overtime to remove all the excess water that’s trying to seep in from outside. After a sump pump failure, water begins to leak through the foundation, basement walls, or any cracks in the cement. The water will pool in the lowest spots on the floor of the basement. It will start gradually rising if more water is able to come in. So what do you do at that point?

A sump pump is a relatively inexpensive water mitigation system. But like any piece of equipment in your home, it will eventually fail which can result in flooding, water backups, or water damage to your basement. If you’re in a flood prone area or don’t want to worry about what might happen if your sump pump fails, consider getting a basement water pump as an emergency backup for your sump pump, to help prevent future damage.
