Sump Pump Installation in Mobile, AL

With an average rainfall of 66.22 inches each year, Mobile, AL is a city that gets more rain than the average. This means that water can get into your crawl space and cause damage to the concrete foundation and floor joists that support your home. To protect your home from water damage, MDH may recommend a sump pump installation for your Mobile-area crawl space. A crawl space sump pump works together with a tube drainage system to channel the excess water into a shallow pit (sump pit). Once in the sump pit, the sump pump will then flush the water out of the pit and away from your home through an outside drainage system like French drains.

Why Install a Crawl Space Sump Pump in Mobile, AL?

Standing water in your crawl space can cause severe problems with your concrete foundation and the wood floor joists that support the ground floor of your home. Concrete is porous and absorbs water, and over time, that continual water exposure will cause your foundation to crack and gradually crumble, compromising the structural stability of your home. With all that water beneath the house—and an average annual humidity of 70% in Mobile—there is potential for the floor joists to soak in and retain that moisture. Given time, the wood of the joists becomes soft and spongy and will rot. Without stable support, the first floor of your home will sag, creak, and become uneven.

Water collection beneath the house also increases the possibility of fungal growth, which can have an unhealthy effect on the air quality inside your home in Mobile, AL. A sump pump installation, along with a full crawl space encapsulation from MDH will reduce those conditions and will help protect your investment, your health, and your quality of life.
