No one ever really thinks about a sump pump until they are standing in a flooded basement. But by being proactive, you can make sure that your sump pump is working properly in order to keep your basement from becoming flooded. In most cases, a sump pump is literally all that is between you and a flooded basement. Flooded basements can produce mold and mildew, both of which are toxic to your body. At Folsom's, we are ready and able to help with all of your sump pump needs.
If your sump pump has stopped working, it's possible that you could replace it yourself. But, it would be better if you would hire it out to a professional to ensure that everything works properly without any problems. Plus, any work that is done by professional is warranted against failure and/or other damages that could be incurred from an improperly installed system. Our trained technicians can help diagnose your sump pump problems, determine if it needs to be repaired or replaced, and install a new one if necessary.
While a sump pump is normally a low-maintenance device, they still should be checked for functionality throughout the year.
