Sump Pump Services in San Mateo, CA

Sump pump installation typically involves cutting a pit into the floor of the basement in which the pump will sit. This pit is commonly found at the lowest point of the basement, towards which the floor gently slopes for water to flow towards. Holes are then drilled to facilitate the movement of water out of the basement and away from the foundation of the house. Once the electricity is hooked up to the pump, it is ready to operate in the event of flooding.

A battery system may be installed alongside the standard electrical system to ensure proper function in the event of a power failure, such as during a heavy storm. Servicing a sump pump usually includes cleaning out the pit and any filters of any debris, checking the function of the pump and the float, and making sure the electrical system is working as intended.

Neglecting to install a sump pump can lead to major damage in the event of a major storm or flooding, where water will infiltrate your basement. This can cause damage to both the house and any personal belongings, potentially ruining irreplaceable items. Water build up can allow for the growth of mold and fungus, which can prove to be a severe health hazard to those living in the house. Failure to service a pump can lead to many similar issues, due to having the efficiency of the pump reduced.

Having a pump installed, or having a previously installed pump serviced, will allow for the optimal removal of water from your basement and living area. This removal is important for both the structure of the house and the safety of those living inside. The structure of the house won’t have the risk of being compromised by the water and any possible rot or damage, and the inhabitants of the house won’t have to worry about mold or mildew growths inside, which can ruin air quality and lead to health issues such as difficulty breathing.
