Sump pumps provide peace of mind to residential and commercial property owners—when they work. Most of the time sump pumps do the job they’re intended to do, which is to prevent a basement from flooding by removing water that collects in the sump basin and extracting it through a hose to an exterior location. But when a sump pump fails, the results can be disastrous.

Sump pumps can fail for any number of reasons, including a power outage, lack of maintenance, mechanical failure, or improper installation. In some cases, a property owner may install a pump that is too small to adequately pump out the volume of water that enters the basin. While proper maintenance is key to keeping your sump pump in good working order, an extreme weather event can cause the pump to work overtime and either burn the unit out or overwhelm it with excess water.
All Flood & Fire can handle any type of water damage due to sump pump failure. We understand the need to promptly extract the water that has flooded your basement, and thoroughly dry the area to avoid the potential for permanent damage to your floors, walls, carpets, and other materials.
Our proven sump pump water cleanup and restoration process includes the following steps:
- Determine the reason for the sump pump failure and take steps to stop the overflow of additional water into your basement
- Using high-powered truck-mounted equipment and submersible pumps, extract the water from the affected area
- Catalogue and remove water-damaged contents for drying and restoration treatment, including carpet cleaning
- Properly dispose of items that are not salvageable
- Place air movers, such as fans and dehumidifiers to thoroughly dry the space
- Check all walls and other hidden areas where water and dampness can be trapped, and treat it appropriately to avoid the potential for mold growth
- Once completely dry, repair any part of the structure that was damaged from the flooding—right down to painting your walls
