We’re in the middle of what tends to be the rainy season here in Indianapolis. This time of year, we tend to get a number of calls here at Indy Renovation requesting sump pump installation. A sump pump helps keep those lower levels of your home dry and free of flooding by pumping water away from your home. If you’re wondering whether your home could benefit from a sump pump, here are a few reasons why you may want to give our plumbers a call today.
1. You have a wet basement.
Have you noticed water pooling in any area of your basement? If you’ve seen moisture or puddles in your basement, it’s likely your home could benefit from a sump pump.
2. Water flows toward your house.
If your house is on an incline and the natural flow of water is toward your home, the lower levels of your house may be at risk of flooding or water damage. You may want to give our plumbing team a call to get a consultation on whether you could benefit from a sump pump.
3. You detect mildew.
Can you smell mildew in the lower level or basement of your home? Mildew is often a sign of recurring water damage or moisture. Your home may need a sump pump, perhaps even combined with a dehumidifier, to keep your house dry and water-damage free.
4. Your home is in a flood zone.
If your home is in an area prone to flooding, then you should definitely consider installing a sump pump. While you may only need it in case of an emergency, it could save your home from thousands of dollars worth of water damage.
