Faulty Sump Pump
Summer 2020 is nearing its conclusion. In comes that unpredictable Missouri weather. Sump pump failure is what SERVPRO of Western O'Fallon/Wentzville gets called to take care of the most. We highly recommend that you check on your sump pump at least once a year. Just make sure there is no mud or anything that could impede water flow. I personally have had to deal with a sump pump failure caused by a couple of ping pong balls that rolled in. Not fun. Also, make sure that your sump pump is less than 10 years old. This is the typical life expectancy for these devices. Unfortunately, nobody is 100% safe from a sump pump malfunction which is why we are here. If you find yourself in a situation where your sump pump is spitting water all over your basement, SERVPRO of Western O'Fallon/Wentzville is just one call away from making it "Like it never even happened."
