The Importance of Sump Pumps in your Long Beach/Oceanside Home
If the water table around your house is high enough, you’re going to have water that seeps into your basement/foundation. This is especially true during heavy rains and periods of excessive snow melt. Depending on the water table and other variables, this can mean either a little dampness or full blown flooding.
That’s where sump pumps come in. Sump pumps are installed underneath the floor of basements and crawl spaces to collect ground water before it can threaten flood to your home.
If you have a sump pump in your Long Beach/Oceanside home, be sure to check it regularly. Most sump pumps run on electricity, so a common issue is lost power. A battery backup is a wise investment to reduce the threat of power failure.
If your home has been flooded due to excessive snow melt or rain fall be sure to contactSERVPRO of Long Beach/Oceanside to assist in water extraction. We are highly trained professionals who will be onsite immediately.
