Crawl Space Sump Pump Installation & Service

Sump Pump Installation & Service

Do you suspect water lying under your home? Any water holding in your crawl space or basement can lead to a number of problems within your home. A sump pump is essential for keeping these areas dry and healthy.

Did you know that more than 40-60% of the air that you breathe in your home passes through your crawl space? Because of this, it’s essential to keep the underneath of your home dry and healthy. Unfortunately, moisture problems under the home are common in Delmarva and can lead to a number of problems like odor, mold, pests, structural issues, and poor air quality. Crawl spaces and basements are ideal for mold growth since they are dark and wet. Asthma, allergies, and other respiratory problems can be triggered and worsened by mold, so it’s critical to address the cause and ensure that your crawl space is safe, healthy, and dry.

Signs of Moisture Problems in the Crawl Space

  • Musty odors and poor indoor air quality
  • Humidity in the living area
  • Buckled hardwood floors
  • Mold growth
  • Allergic reactions and worsen asthma symptoms
  • Wood rot
  • Increased energy usage and bills
  • Pest infestations

What is a Sump Pump?

A sump pump is an automated submersible pump that is placed at the bottom of a sump basin and is typically installed at the lowest point of your basement or crawl space. Once the basin fills up with water, the pump is automatically activated via a float switch and quickly moves the water outside and away from the home. Sump pumps are a great solution to keep the area under your home dry.

Do You Need a Sump Pump?

Do you suspect water lying under your home? Are you experiencing musty odors and higher humidity levels inside your home? If so, it’s possible that the crawl space or basement beneath your home is experiencing moisture-related problems and these are just symptoms of flooding and excess humidity. Water in your crawl space may appear to be a common occurrence. However, excess moisture or water should never be present in your crawl space or basement. Water and high moisture levels can cause a variety of problems that might compromise your home’s structural integrity as well as your family’s health. A sump pump, coupled together with an interior perimeter drain system, can not only solve any standing water issues but help prevent flooding as well!

Benefits of Installing a Sump Pump

  • A key component in keeping low moisture levels beneath the home
  • Keeps water out of the crawl space and basement
  • Helps prevent mold and mildew growth
  • Helps improve air quality in the home
  • Prevents moisture-related problems to the structure or foundation

Safeguard Your Sump Pump – Alarm & Battery Backup System

Most homeowners don’t discover their sump pump has a problem until the crawl space or basement has already flooded. Therefore, we highly recommend you protect your investment by adding two safeguards to your sump pump system:

  • WiFi or 4G monitoring/alarm system – This 24/7 monitoring system will constantly watch your sump pump and sends instant alerts to your smartphone when your sump pump malfunctions or high water is detected.
  • Battery Backup System – A DC battery-powered sump pump is installed in addition to your primary pump and automatically turns on if your primary pump is not capable of operating due to a power outage, mechanical failure, or overwhelmed pump.
