A Disaster of the Sump Pump Variety: Water Damage Restoration in a Pataskala Home

Water Restoration

For those of us with basements, a sump pump is a valuable component of our underground space. Typically installed in a sump pit (the basement’s lowest area), the device detects rising waters and pumps out the excess water.

A sump pump failure, however, often spells disaster. Water can quickly accumulate and lead to flooding, damaging floors, walls, and personal belongings. The water damage can sometimes extend to other parts of the house or building, causing significant damage and costly repairs. In the event of water damage, contact PuroClean Water, Fire, and Mold Experts for restoration services.

The Simple Sump Pump Solution

Recently, our office received an urgent call requesting our services. The client, a family of five, noticed their sump pump had malfunctioned in their Pataskala home. The water damage that ensued left their unfinished basement in disarray.

We dispatched our experienced technicians to assess the damage and determine the cause of the problem, two things that we do before starting the remediation. It turned out that the cord was not securely plugged into the outlet. After plugging it in, the sump pump worked and drained the water from the basement.

Though we learned what had happened, we still needed to dry the unfinished basement. Our crew utilized our state-of-the-art equipment, including air movers and dehumidifiers, to dry the property and prevent future mold growth. Mold can be an unexpected consequence of water damage, detrimental to property and humans if left untreated.

Thankfully, the family caught the leak early and called us immediately when they noticed the water in their basement. We realized the damage could have been much more severe if the family had waited longer.
