In the event of flooding or significant water damage, your sump pump is a fail-safe mechanism. This is what prevents floods in your crawlspace. The system prevents water from entering your home from below, which is likely to flood first if there is excess water entering your crawlspace, or basement if you’ve got one of the rare homes in Florida with basements. Your sump pump may fail over time or due to heavy usage. As a result, a serious backup can occur. If you are experiencing an overflow of your sump pump right now. Call us ASAP. Minutes count!
