    Sump Pump Installation in Seattle, Everett, and Kent

    As a Seattle resident, you are no stranger to rain. The average rainfall is about 38 inches yearly. When you own a home, you must rely on modern sewage technology to prevent your basement from flooding. That’s why you need an expert sump pump installation contractor from Attic Project to ensure your home is protected.

    What Is a Sump Pump?

    A sump pump is a piece of equipment placed in a sump pit created at the lowest point of your home, like basements or crawl spaces. This pit stores your basement sump pump. A sump pump system only works when needed. However, it’s a crucial device to save your Seattle home from extensive water damage and associated repairs.

    Simply put, a sump pump removes water from your basement and moves it away from your home. After the sump pump installation, a valve senses when water levels or pressure are escalating. When there is heavy rain, the soil around your home gets oversaturated.

    Excess water flows toward the sump pit, filling it with water. As water fills the hole, the sump pump float switch activates and turns the pump on. Once the switch is activated, the pump turns on, moves water into a discharge line, and guides it away from your home’s foundation.

    Why Do Homeowners Need a Sump Pump?

    Many homeowners question why they need a sump pump installation if their basement has never flooded. While that may be true, you never know when a flood could happen, and a sump pump will save the day.

    Any homeowner with an underground level should have a sump pump installed. It alleviates flooding and helps keep basement humidity low, reducing the chances of mold and mildew growth. Wet basements are the perfect environment for additional problems like:

    • Foul odors
    • Peeling paint
    • Rust
    • Cracked floors
    • Walls

    Contact Attic Projects for an experienced sump pump contractor to get this valuable device installed in your home.

    Are Sump Pumps Necessary in Washington?

    There’s more to a sump pump than keeping your home from flooding. In fact, they provide many benefits for your home. Temperatures in the Seattle area sometimes dip into the 30s in the winter. It’s frigid outside, but your basement remains warmer and drier throughout the season when you have a sump pump.

    The ice and snow eventually melt, making your sump pump beneficial throughout the year. However, if your sump pump operation is irregular, you likely have a problem. Call a qualified sump pump repair specialist, like one from Attic Project. We’ll promptly repair your sump pump system.

    Can a Sump Pump Freeze?

    Yes, a sump pump can freeze. However, a frozen sump pump usually means the discharge line exiting the pump is frozen. Although the pump can freeze, it’s not as likely to happen because it’s kept inside your home.

    Still, it’s possible and usually caused by a previous condition that stops water from passing through the discharge lines. To treat a frozen pump, whatever is blocking the line must be removed.

    Typically, it must be thawed and assessed for damage that may have occurred. Before it can be used again, the sump pump must be restarted.

    Can You Insulate a Sump Pump?

    Adding some insulation to your sump pump can help prevent a frozen discharge line, just like it does for plumbing pipes that course through your home. This helps prevent the water from freezing and keeps it moving through the line.

    Other insulation methods include burying the discharge line deeper underground or using hay and a tarp to protect the line. Insulation may help keep your sump pump from external damage and contain any existing leaks.

    If you notice that your sump pump does freeze this winter, seek professional help to unthaw the frozen discharge line. Prompt attention is crucial to protecting your home from water damage.

    Testimonials

    We live in an older home near a large park area. Since buying our home, we’ve had to deal with the occasional rat. These guys came out and sealed my entire attic space – vs setting a few traps. Then vacuumed out the entire space that had nearly 100 years of debris – including from our new roof and insulated the entire house. Love the 5 year warranty against the rats and we already notice how much warmer the house is. The did a great job keeping area clean and protecting floors, walls while working. Highly recommend.

    It’s a stressful situation when you find black mold in your home. The guys at Attic Projects were professional, polite and respectfully clean. They finished the job in a timely manner and went the extra mile to make sure I was satisfied with their work. Once the job was completed we instantly noticed a difference in our home’s humidity- going from 70% to the optimal 50%. I’d highly recommend these guys. Jordan, your customer service was top notch, thank you for making this a stress free experience.

    Attic Projects was so incredibly thorough and detailed with their description of how and why they were going to do each step, I knew I could trust them. These guys get it!! Total professionals, hard workers and they invited me to poke my head up in the attic during and after the job was complete. My in-laws received before and after pics and received a 5-year warranty on rodent proofing This was a big job and these guys absolutely killed it. I’d recommend them to anyone with similar issues. Thanks Attic Projects!!
