Preventing Your Basement from Flooding

Are you trying to avoid having a flooded basement in Baltimore? Flooded basements can cause an array of problems throughout your house, including water damage and an outbreak of mold. One way to avoid a flooded basement is to install a sump pump.

Watch this video to learn more about preventing your basement from flooding. When considering sump pumps, remember that many of the main varieties of sump pumps run on electricity. This is a convenient option that ensures that your sump pump is usually on. However, if your electricity goes out during a storm, your electric sump pump will fail to run. That’s why you should consider a back-up sump pump that runs on battery power or water power. These sump pumps can help you avoid getting water in your basement during flash flood storms that knock out electrical power.
