Termite & Pest Control Company
If unwanted water is making its way into your basement or crawl space, then you may want to consider installing a sump pump. A sump pump works to keep ground water from making its way into your home. The sump pit - located within the sump pump - is set to a particular level that will trigger the pump to remove water once a maximum level has been reached. Sump pumps are also useful for removing moisture if it has already made its way into a basement or crawl space. The sump pump does not work to keep leakage from entering through the walls of a basement, but instead to reduce ground water that may cause or worsen an already existing problem.
We can also help you determine how the water is getting in. It might be a sloping issue around your house where the landscaping of your property is directing water toward your foundation. This could result in water coming in through open crawl space vents. You could also have a higher water table in your area and water could be coming up from the ground into your crawl space.
