Sump Pump Installation & Repair Service
If no steps are taken to address the situation, high levels of moisture in your basement and crawlspace can lead to expensive damage. In fact, the structure of your home could be made vulnerable by things like dry rot, termites, mildew, and mold.
Having the professionals at A-One Pest Control install a sump pump can significantly help to maintain a dry and moisture-free environment under your home and reduce the chances of these damaging conditions.
During times of high rain volumes your property is especially at risk for excessive water pooling and eventually draining to the area under your home. A sump pump will help to move this water away from your house through a system of trenches and pipes.
Sump Pump Installation
When A-One Pest Control installs your new sump pump it will be placed in a basin or pit that has been dug at the lowest point under your house. A series of trenches will be designed on your property to direct water to the basin, and once the basin fills to a designated point the pump will turn on. Once the pump is triggered it will push the water out of the basin and into the diversion piping system that carries the water away from your house.
Sump Pump Maintenance
Although your sump pump is under your house, it should be considered an important appliance and maintained just like the others. If your pump is not properly maintained a clog or malfunction could lead to a messy and expensive flood under your home. A routine maintenance check consists of making sure all pipes and trenches are free from any debris that could cause blockages, the pump mechanics are inspected to make sure they are working properly, and the pit is cleared of any items that might lead to a clog.
