storm damage can lead to Mold
In Western O'Fallon / Wentzville we see all sorts of weather patterns. It looks like we made it through the bad winter storms and heavy snows however now is when the melting snows from our friends in the great north are coming down and flooding our area. All of our sump pumps are working overtime to keep our basements dry. We also are going to start in with spring showers. This is the time when sump pumps tend to die on us due to over use. I would suggest that you go to your basement and check on that about every other day. In the event that it does stop working keep in mind that SERVPRO O'Fallon / Wentzville can help. If water is not properly cleaned up and thoroughly dried it can and will turn into mold. Mold grows and spreads fast. One of the biggest problems with mold is that you don't always see it. You may not realize it is there until it makes you sick. So as you can see it is very important to keep a close eye on your sump pump.
