Sump Pump & Pit Repair

While sump pumps and pits are an extremely important component of any property with a basement or below-ground level, they can also see their fair share of problems.

What Is a Sump Pump?

A sump pump diverts water out of a basin, also called the pit, and away from your property once it has reached a certain level. They can usually be found in properties with basements or other sub-ground levels to prevent flooding and foundational damage. Sump pumps can also be used on construction sites, or any area in which water has to be removed. Most are powered directly by electricity, but many of them come with battery or water-powered backup systems to keep them working in the event of a power outage. Whatever the case, it’s essential to ensure your sump pump is in good working order at all times and to get it repaired or replaced if it isn’t.

Emergency Sump Pump Repair & Replacement

As you probably already know, problems with sump pumps don’t always occur between 9 am and 5 pm on a weekday. That’s why Texas Disaster Restoration provides 24/7 emergency sump pump repair and replacement services. We understand things like this can’t wait. Delaying sump pump repairs or a replacement could lead your property to be filled with water and damaged beyond repair. When we get to your property, we’ll make sure there’s no standing water anywhere and perform mold remediation services. Additionally, we’ll take care of any needed repairs or replacements promptly, so your sump pump can start performing its duties normally again.

Signs You May Need Your Sump Pump Replaced

The following are some telltale signs of a problem with your sump pump, indicating that it may need to be replaced:

• It isn’t functioning.

• It’s making strange sounds.

• It’s running constantly.

• It’s reaching the end of its projected lifespan.

• It cycles erratically.

• It frequently clogs.

• There is no water in the pit.

If your property is located in a flat or low-lying area, you may need to have your sump pump replaced more often. If you need help determining if there’s an issue with your sump pump or property, please contact us to schedule an appointment.

Basement Waterproofing

Does the fear of basement flooding send a shiver down your spine every time it rains? It doesn’t have to be that way. Texas Disaster Restoration can help you waterproof your basement, protecting it from leaks and flooding all year long. You won’t have to worry or cross your fingers when it rains ever again! Since there are no one-size-fits-all solutions when it comes to sump pumps, we’d be happy to tailor your sump pump and pit to perfectly meet the needs and contours of your property. We can also perform other waterproofing services to ensure that your sump pump isn’t doing all the work of keeping your basement dry.

Crawl Space Waterproofing

Crawl spaces aren’t something many of us think about, except when something goes wrong. But crawl spaces are as prone to flooding as basements are. The good news is that they too can be waterproofed. No matter how tight your crawl space may be, Texas Disaster Restoration will help make sure it’s as watertight as possible. This way, you can forget about your crawl space not because it’s easy to do so, but because it’s fully protected from the weather outside!

Frequently Asked Questions About Waterproofing

1Why does my basement leak?
When it rains, water can seep through any cracks in the walls or flooring of your basement, as well as mortar joints, tie rods, junctures, and window wells. Leaks can also be caused by compromised plumbing.
2Why is basement waterproofing so important?
In the grand scheme of things, cleaning up a few puddles in the basement may not seem like a big deal, but standing water can always lead to mold and mildew problems. Any amount of standing water in your basement should not be taken lightly. Having your basement waterproofed will give you peace of mind and reduce the odds of your property suffering from mold or mildew problems.
3Would my sump pump benefit from a battery backup?
You simply never know when the power will go out, so we recommend every property owner ensure that their sump pump is equipped with a battery backup. If your municipality allows it and you’re willing to endure higher water bills, you can also use a water-powered backup.
