Is your sump pump ready?

sump pump Not ready for the storm.

April showers bring May flowers.  And spring storms can bring water into your basement.  We are all ready for the flowers, but is your sump pump ready for the storm?  The sump in this picture isn't ready.  Can you tell why?  The float is on top of the water and not activating the pump.  The float can become disconnected or stuck in a bad position.  

Malfunctioning sumps are a major cause of flooded basements.  Inspect your pump to make sure it is operating properly.  If it is broken replace it or have a qualified vendor fix it.  

Sump pumps are powered by electricity.  If the power goes out the pump can't do its job.  Consider a battery backup.  

SERVPRO has been helping victims of basement flooding from storms since 1995.  From New Buffalo to St. Joseph.  We are always ready to answer questions or bring a crew to clean up and restore.  It's what we do.
