Sometimes, musty odors might not be associated with health-hazards like mold or pests, but that doesn’t mean the smells aren’t a serious problem. Musty odors usually occur with any sort of moisture-damage. If you smell anything in your home, don’t ignore it. Moisture in your crawl space could lead to wood rot or damaged insulation – both of which can greatly damage your home and reduce its efficiency. Any crawl space problem signs should be taken seriously and solved as soon as possible.
Mold’s main function is to break down organic material in order to continue multiplying. For that reason, mold spores are quite dangerous to humans. If you breathe in mold spores, they could cause damage to your lungs. Even worse, mold spores could latch onto skin, clothing, and more which only increases its chance to grow. Eventually, mold in your crawl space could break out into a full-blown infestation throughout your entire house.
A sump pump is a kind of drainage system that collects water into a pit and then pumps it out of and away from the foundation. It’s a perfect device for homeowners who have basement flooding problems and need to keep that part of the house as dry as possible. If you already have a sump pump in your basement, you should know that it may not be enough to have just one.
Living in Northern North Carolina means that your property probably sees a lot of water. It would be worth investing in a second or even a third pump for your sump pump in order to keep up with the incredible amounts of water that flows around your foundation. If your sump pump gets overworked because of all the water it has to continuously pump, it will have a shorter lifespan and malfunction sooner than it should. When this happens, your basement will quickly flood, and the structural damages as a result of that failure will cost more than a second pump. All of the sump pumps in our SafeDri™ series can all be installed with a backup battery system that will guarantee a dry basement at all times.
If you’re unsure if you need another pump, simply observe your sump pump during the summer. Summer is the rainiest season in North Carolina, so watching the sump pump when it’s at its most active will give you all the information you need. If the water is flowing into the pit at an excessive rate, you need to invest in another pump. Doing so will ensure that the device functions for years without failure.
