If you didn’t already know, sump pumps are often essential in maintaining water levels around your home and preventing your basement from flooding. Sump pumps work by collecting water and distributing it away from your home through a series of pipes and drains. Without sump pumps, not only do you risk flooding, but you may also get pest infestations. That being said, it’s important to know when you need sump pump services to maintain your sump pump.
- Regular inspections: You should have your sump pump inspected regularly, at least once a year. This allows professionals to determine the condition of your sump pump and identify any problems needing repair. If you can’t remember the last time you had your sump pump inspected, then it’s probably time to call for professional sump pump services.
- Strange noises: It’s normal for your sump pump to make some sounds, but those noises should be fairly minimal. Loud and strange sounds can be an indicator that you need some work done on your sump pump. Strange noises could mean that some parts are failing, damaged, or obstructed, which prevents your sump pump from working properly.
- Malfunctioning: There are things your sump pump should do and some that it shouldn’t. For example, your sump pump shouldn’t always be running or running at the wrong times.
Sump pump services can be extremely beneficial in keeping your moisture and pest levels under control. For more information, give us a call here at True Blue Termite and Pest Control today.
