The majority of our customers with flooded basements who need our services to dry out a basements have Sump Pumps; however those pumps failed to work when they were most needed. A large percentage of these flooded basements could have been prevented. How you ask? With preventative maintenance.
Sump pumps are like clothes dryers and dishwashers they both need periodic maintenance to operate efficiently. Some area's are more prone to flooding then others. For example water damage in Ann Arbor is more common in some areas than others. It is recommended that in area's where rain and flooding is more prevalent, sump pumps should be tested every month, while other area's that only have periodic flooding, they should be tested a few times per year.
