Pump It Up!
A home with a wet basement creates countless headaches for any homeowner. If you should ever decide to sell your home, it becomes much more difficult to sell because a wet basement is a serious red flag that deters prospective buyers. With our experts at Ontario Wet Basement you can count on experienced and knowledgeable waterproofers, who install sump pumps and basement waterproofing systems in Barrie every day.
Truly, your sump pump (or installing a sump pump) is your main line of defense
against a basement flood. If your sump pump system is not powerful or reliable
then you run the risk of having a wet basement or an unexpected and unwanted
flood. A dry basement and a fully operational sump pump system provides every
homeowner with peace of mind. If you haven’t checked your sump pump lately,
it’s a good idea to take a minute to test it out to ensure that it is in proper working
so that you don’t get caught in a damp situation.
Installing a sump pump and waterproofing system is the most effective way to
keep a basement dry – and keep it dry all the time. Sump pumps are most
effective at removing water from under your basement floor when located in the
lowest spot of the floor. Water will travel and pool to the lowest parts of an area,
and so it makes good sense for sump pumps to exist in this area of your basement.
Like any other mechanical appliance in your home, your sump pump system should have annual service & maintenance to be sure it is working at peak performance in your home. Your sump pump consists of many moving parts that can wear down or need replacement and we are here to help solve any problems. A trained service technician from Ontario Wet Basement will ensure that your system in Barrie is in efficient and working order.
