Sump Pump Repair Buffalo Grove
It’s a homeowner’s nightmare: coming home after those first warm days that usually mark the final days of the winter, only to find your basement is completely flooded out. A flooded basement is more than just an annoyance: property damage and mold growth harmful to your health become very real threats to your home. Since your sump pump only runs when you need it, you may not even know you have a problem. You need to ensure that your basement and home are prepared for the snow melts and heavy rains due for the upcoming months, and Lake Cook Plumbing is here to get you there.
Lake Cook is Buffalo Grove’s best bet for sump pump repair, maintenance, and installation. If your home has an existing sump pump that hasn’t been examined for quite some time, it’s time to call in the pros. Common sump pump issues we encounter are:
Clogs: If something is clogging your sump pump, it won’t be moving any water out of your basement. Unfortunately, you won’t know this is an issue until after it’s too late.
Motor Failure: Older sump pumps or those who have not been given the love and attention they deserve over the years are prone to motor failure. Having a plumbing expert at Lake Cook Plumbing put your pump through it’s paces is the best way to ensure it’s ready for prime time this spring.
Improper Sizing: If your pump is too small for your basement, you’re going to have serious problems. The pump should work just fine, but it won’t be able to handle the workload you put on it. This needs to be addressed before your basement starts flooding, otherwise you’re going to have a serious problem on your hands.
The key factor in all of these common issues is that you simply won’t know there is a problem until it is too late. Even if you simulate a basement flooding and get the pump to activate, you still won’t know if it can handle a major problem. Call in the experts at Lake Cook Plumbing to inspect and repair your sump pump before it’s too late.
