As snow melts or rain pours, the risk of flooding for your home or business increases! And if your property has levels below ground, you’re at an even higher risk for potential water damage due to extreme weather conditions. Thankfully, there are effective methods for keeping water out of your basement. By installing a sump pump, your home or business can prevent flooding, manage water damage and eliminate mold growth. Allow J.C. Dillon Inc. to help install a new sump pump for your property.

Sump pumps will only activate when underground water reaches a certain level, at which point a sensor will trigger the draining process.
