You may not think that you are at risk of flooding if you live in Fort Saskatchewan, Edmonton, Sherwood Park or the surrounding areas and don’t live anywhere near a source of water. However, something as common as spring thaw or a heavy rain storm can be enough to flood your basement. You could end up with thousands of dollars worth of damage, a compromised foundation and issues with mould.
Why should you use a sump pump?
Avoid the mess and potential costs by using a sump pump. What it does is collects the water from around your home and redirects it away from your home’s foundation to prevent water from getting into your basement. Not only does a sump pump protect you against unexpected flooding, but it increases the value of your home if you ever decide to sell. Potential homebuyers want to know that their basement is protected before something happens.
Sump pumps control the humidity and dampness of your basement, which also prevents mould from developing and spreading. Water damage caused by flooding can also weaken the structural integrity of your home.
