Most flooding in Bellingham results from groundwater buildup. As the earth beneath your house becomes saturated, water seeps through cracks in the foundation. This leads to plumbing backups, sewer issues, and extensive property damage. If not rectified, these issues can permanently impact your home’s value and destroy your furnace and other high-value appliances. One easy, inexpensive way to prevent this issue is to install a sump pump.
As expert local plumbers, LaVergne's understands the devastating impact water damage can have on your home and budget. That is why we provide comprehensive sump pump services throughout the Anacortes, Mount Vernon, and Bellingham areas. So, if peace of mind tops your list of needs, give us a call at 360-685-8098 for a no-obligation quote on sump pump installation.
Sump pumps use specialized sensors and floats to detect raising water levels. If it raises above a certain amount, the pump will turn on and transfer the excess water from your foundation or slab to the nearest well, pond, or storm drain. Fully submersible and waterproof, these pumps are typically installed in a sump pit at the lowest point of your crawl space, home, or basement.
As alluded to earlier, these simple systems are the best way to prevent home flooding in Bellingham. Whether the cause is a broken levy or a backed-up pipe, they’re there to help keep your home and possessions dry.
