Symptoms of Water Issues in Basements & Crawl Spaces

If you’re dealing with water in your basement or crawl space, there’s a good chance you’re already aware of just how destructive the problem can be. When water is entering your home, you’ll notice a whole host of secondary symptoms, including:

  • Wet floors or puddles
  • Dampness and efflorescence on walls
  • Mold or mildew growth
  • Sagging or bouncy main floors
  • Stinky, musty odors
  • High humidity levels (or high utility bills)
  • Heightened asthma or respiratory issues

If any of these problems sound familiar, it’s time to call the experts at Kennedy and Sons Structural Solutions.

How Sump Pumps Work

A sump pump is a small device that’s installed in the lowest portion of your basement or crawl space. They collect water in a small pit and, once full, pump the water out of the structure and away from the home.

Our Products & Process

At Kennedy and Sons Structural Solutions, we install Pro Series sump pumps and battery backups. They’re some of the best industrial grade sump pumps and they’re designed specifically for residential use. Not all sump pumps are created equally, which is why we only use the very best products on the market for our customers’ homes. We’ll start by picking the right location—this will usually be the lowest possible spot in your basement or crawl space, because that’s where water will collect naturally. We’ll then dig a hole for the pump and attach all the necessary discharge pipes, placing them so they can discharge the collected water outside. Our team will then seal the opening where the pipe leaves the home and test the system before covering the pump and cleaning the area thoroughly.
