Sump Pump Failure in Vernon CT

Sump Pump Failure in Vernon CT: A homeowner had contacted SERVPRO with an urgent call for service in Vernon CT with a flooding basement due to sump pump failure. The water actively entered the cellar and was not draining properly due to the sump pump failing. It had already damaged the carpeting and affected personal possessions in storage in the basement. Fearing further water damage, the homeowner quickly searched on the web for "basement cleanup sump pump failure," and SERVPRO was contacted, immediately sending out a team.

SERVPRO arrived at the home and quickly provided multiple water damage cleanup services to the homeowner. Upon arrival, we began to isolate the water issues in the basement. We drained the flooding water, dried the various affected areas with drying fans, cleaned the affected surfaces, including floors and walls, salvaged personal possessions, and left the space ready for replacement of the sump pump, as well as any further renovations and restoration.

Flooding, and any damage relating to water, is not easy to deal with and always has the potential to worsen. Sump pump failure can quickly lead to flooded perimeter drains and sump holes. These failures, coupled with any weather or disaster-related flood conditions, can completely ruin walls and floors of the affected rooms and harm systems like heating, plumbing, and electrical.

The homeowner in Vernon was thankful that we could respond so quickly. "Thank you to SERVPRO! I am very appreciative that they were able to take care of my flooding and sump pump issue before it caused severe damage."

Additional Damage Cleanup in Vernon CT Services:

Water Damage can come from various sources and can adversely affect homes and homeowners in multiple ways.  Groundwater and natural streams can quickly become flooding conditions by extreme weather such as rains, seasonal melting, and hurricanes. Seasonal changes can also cause burst frozen pipes and clogged drains. Appliance failures like broken water heaters, leaking washing machines, and sump pump failure are just a few ways that systems in your home can break down and cause damage. When left unchecked and untreated, these conditions can cause serious hazards.
