Have you ever wondered why it’s so critical to have a sump pump—and to keep it in good working order?
Here’s why: Owning a real estate property—whether it’s your home or a commercial property—comes with an enormous amount of financial and personal responsibility. Let’s face it: few of us are in the position to purchase a property outright. As a result, most of us have a hefty loan in the form of a mortgage with a bank, credit union, or other mortgage brokers. It’s up to you, as the owner, to maintain your property and provide a healthy place for your family to live or, if applicable, for your tenants to work or reside. It’s also up to you to ensure your preserve or even increase the value of the property. A sump pump needs to be one of the things you consider.
So how does a sump pump fit into this picture? Well, barring a natural disaster, water damage is pretty much the fastest way to turn a healthy, valuable building into an unhealthy structure that’s rapidly deteriorating.
Without a properly functioning sump pump, your basement can flood due to heavy precipitation or overflowing rivers. Even if you call an emergency plumber right away, you’ve already incurred the damage to the foundation and basement of your property, as well as to any furnishings, furniture, and other items that were submerged. Unless you make sure the entire structure is professionally dried out, rot, mildew, and mold can start to form in the construction materials. And that compromises the safety of the building, as well as the health of its occupants.
