How Sump Pumps Keep Your Basement Dry
Basements are susceptible to water damage based on the way they’re designed. Water from the ground can easily seep through any cracks in your basement floor or walls and cause damage to your basement. It’s important to have the proper waterproofing systems in place to protect your basement from any water damage.
Sump pumps are a great line of defense against water intrusion during a flood or heavy rainstorm. They capture the water before it ever enters your basement and funnels it outside away from your foundation.
Six Steps to a Dry, Usable Space in your Basement
Our basement waterproofing experts at MidAmerica Basement Systems follow these steps to properly install a sump pump to protect your basement from water damage:
A sump pit must be excavated in order to place the sump pump. A liner is then installed to protect the pump from dirt and debris.
The perimeter of your basement is jackhammered and clean stone is set. The perimeter drain is installed on top of the stone in order to collect water and properly drain it outside.
The sump pump is installed into the sump pit and is connected to the perimeter drain.
Our team restores your floor to make it look clean and finished after the pump is installed.
The installation space is always cleaned up and free of any dust or debris that may have collected during the install process.
Now that your basement is protected from water damage, it’s the perfect time to make updates to ensure your investment won’t get ruined from water damage.
