Do you get nervous every time there’s a storm with a heavy downpour around your Baltimore, Maryland home? If so, it is probably because you don’t have a properly functioning sump pump in your basement. When working correctly, a sump pump can be your best friend when the rain really comes down – it can keep your basement high and dry from flooding, and you can avoid costly repair bills down the line. To make sure your sump pump is up to the task it was meant to handle, contact Atlantic Mechanical today for assistance. Our experienced team will be happy to come to your location to deal with any sump pump related issues.
First and foremost, it is a good idea to have your sump pump tested from time to time to make sure everything is working properly. We can go for long periods of time between heavy rainfalls here in the Maryland area, only to suddenly deal with several storms in a row. Your sump pump only runs when it is needed, meaning you might not know there is a problem until it is too late. Team with Atlantic Mechanical to test your pump periodically and you won’t be caught in a bad situation.
Even if your pump is working correctly during testing, you still may be exposed during the next storm if you don’t have a backup system in place. A battery backup will make sure that your pump continues to do its job even if there is no power flowing to your home. Of course, the time you are most likely to lose power at home is during a storm, so heavy rains and power outages often go together. The professionals at Atlantic Mechanical can easily install a battery backup system for your sump pump so you can rest easy during an upcoming storm, even if the power is out.
A sump pump is something that is easy to take for granted until it is desperately needed. It only takes one basement flood to do serious damage to your home, so don’t wait until that day arrives to take action. Even if you don’t have a sump pump in your home, we can jackhammer up the concrete floor to create a sump pit and then install a pump.
