If excessive levels of moisture in your crawlspace and basement are left unaddressed, the impact to the structure of your home can be devastating. Dangerous conditions like mold, mildew, dry rot, and termites thrive in high moisture environments.

During the rainy season, the property around your home can being to flood and puddle with water. That water needs to have somewhere to go and, because of gravity, it usually finds its way to the lowest point of the property – your basement. A sump pump works to direct this water to a specific location and then pump it away from your house.

Next, a series of channels and trenches will be configured so that they bring the water from around your home into the basin. Once the basin fills to a certain level, the pump will turn on and will begin pushing the water through a system of pipes that will carry the water away from your house.
