Ask Our Melrose Park Plumber: Why Should You Consider Sump Pump Installation Before Spring?

With winter nearing an end, spring is on the horizon, bringing with it longer days, warmer weather and flooding basements. Any homeowner with wet basement issues is aware of this overwhelming reality in the rainy months of the year, and many basements in the Melrose Park area begin to flood as soon as the snow starts to melt. Wet basements can cause massive headaches for homeowners and easily put a damper on the beautiful weather the spring months promise. Luckily, there is a tool to help: the sump pump.

Benefits of Sump Pump Inspections

We’re no strangers to flooding basements and sump pump installation here at Precision Plumbing. Below we have compiled a few key reasons to consider sump pump installation this spring before the water takes over your basement.

It Keeps The Basement Dry

This is the most basic reason to buy a sump pump: it keeps your basement dry during the wet seasons. A wet basement can lead to a host of problems for homeowners, resulting in thousands of dollars in repairs. Additionally, having a dry basement means you can have another part of the house to utilize, since having a wet basement limits storage and usage.

It Stops Mold and Mildew

Installing a sump pump alleviates the water that collects in your basement. Even if you don’t use your basement, this added moisture makes a perfect habitat for mold and mildew to grow in your home, some of which can be harmful to your health and all of which is pretty gross to deal with. Some strains of mold can lead to respiratory problems, which can be especially dangerous for young children or the elderly. Installing a sump pump can remove the habitat these fungi need to grow.

It Adds Value to Your Home

A home with a wet basement is bound to cause a few headaches, but installing a sump pump helps alleviate many of these issues. When it comes time to sell, having a sump pump installed will not only increase value due to the promise of a dry basement in the future for the new homeowners, but having one will help increase the stability of the foundation, making the home safer and more reliable. Additionally, insurance rates may rise if you have continued claims of basement flooding issues in your home. Installing a sump pump to limit these issues will save you money in that avenue as well.

With the end of winter in sight and spring on the horizon, the wet months are sure to cause some headaches for homeowners. If a sump pump sounds like the right call for your Melrose Park home, call Precision Plumbing at (630) 425-8995 to keep your basement dry all year long.
