What Are The Root Causes of Basement Water Damage?
Basement water damage can have several unexpected causes. One can be due to issues in the foundation of your home or structure. Sump Pump installation can be a quick and efficient alternative to making major modifications like replacing an old foundation.
Your location can also have a major impact on whether or not you will experience basement water damage. If you’re located in the Dayton area, sump pump installation can give you peace of mind during heavy rains or snowfalls. Sump pumps can become even more critical if your home or structure is located on a very flat or low-lying plot of land, or on soil that drains poorly.
How Will I Know If I Need a Sump Pump?
As mentioned above, things like structural issues, regional weather patterns, location, and soil drainage are all factors you should consider when determining whether or not you should install a sump pump in your basement. Additionally, if you’ve ever had water damage issues in the past, you should seriously consider having a sump pump installed to avoid future damage.
It’s also important to keep in mind that sump pumps don’t last forever. The lifespan of a sump pump can vary depending on the exact type that is installed, though they should all last at least 10 years.
What Types of Damage Could Basement Water Cause?
Anything that is stored in your basement could be damaged as a result of flooding; this includes your wall coverings and paint. Basement water can cause your metal appliances, such as washers and dryers, to corrode. Basement water could also result in molds, mildew, fungus, and insect infestations, as well as damage to the foundation of your home or structure.
