Three Reasons Why Your Home Needs a Sump Pump

Properly-installed-sump-pumps

Even the best-built basements in Kansas City can have moisture issues. Properly installed sump pumps are a must for many basement owners, as they can protect basements and crawlspaces from water damage associated with flooding or moisture accumulation. Sump pumps pump water out of basements or crawlspaces and into storm drains or dry wells.

If you’re on the fence about buying a sump pump, consider these three reasons for buying one:

  • The first and most obvious reason you should have a sump pump is to keep your basement or crawlspace dry. If your crawlspace or basement floods, it can cause structural damage to your home or create an environment where mold can flourish. Mold is expensive and difficult to clean up and can pose serious health hazards.
  • Today’s modern sump pumps can alert homeowners when water levels are rising in their homes. Some of the newest models can even make a call or send a text to their owner’s phone, allowing the owner to contact an emergency plumber if needed. For property owners with vacation or rental properties far from their place of residence, this feature can be a lifesaver.
  • Sump pumps can add value to homes. Prospective buyers will feel that their basements are better protected if a sump pump is present, making them more likely to purchase your home and purchase it at a price you like.
