More Families Are Dealing With Flooding
Many homes in our region have dealt with waterlogged basements and crawlspaces for ages. In recent years, though, extreme weather in Oakland County has soaked properties that hadn’t encountered flooding before. We’ve seen too many families caught off guard—forced to say goodbye to precious keepsakes and clean up water damage.
We don’t get much advanced warning when powerful storms dump a deluge upon us. That means property owners should consider taking proactive steps to protect their homes. Adding a sump pump is a modest investment that could save you from some major headaches down the road.
The talented technicians at Matheson routinely install sump pumps in communities such as Farmington Hills and White Lake. Their training allows them to identify the best spot for a sump pump after a brief inspection of a home. From there, they can educate customers about the different models of sump pumps available and make a recommendation on which one is the best fit.
We advise homeowners to go with submersible pumps when possible. These units rest in shallow basins below your floor. When enough water pools in the basin, the pump jumps into action and diverts the water out of your home. Submersible pumps can be covered to reduce noise and prevent debris from interfering with your system. We also favor models with alarms. This way, you’ll know when flooding is occurring and you can monitor the situation.
Once your sump pump is in place, our team can help you keep up with its necessary maintenance. These units need routine testing and upkeep to work at peak performance and, should a downpour come along, you’ll need them at full strength. If something goes wrong with your sump pump, we’re ready to make any necessary repairs.
