Sump Pump Maintenance and Cleanup Services

Your home's sump pump is a fail-safe in the event of flooding or significant water damage. It is what defends your basement and crawlspace from flooding. The system is designed to combat any excess water from entering your home from below, which is, let's be honest, most likely to flood first. Over time, or due to heavy usage, your sump pump may fail. The resulting backup can be quite severe. Your sump pump requires regular inspection and upkeep to operate in peak performance, so do not hesitate to schedule routine sump pump maintenance. Just a single appointment each year can save you from a serious water disaster.

Residential sump pump cleanup involves removing all debris from the system and discharge line in one convenient appointment. Commercial sump pumps are often larger and more complex. As such, our technicians train extensively to provide thorough sump pump cleanup and maintenance for a commercial sump pump. We'll ensure your system is running smoothly year-round.

Common Sump Pump Problems and Solutions

  • An overwhelmed sump pump can result in your basement flooding fast. To resolve the issue, an additional sump pump in the basement can make a big difference. Otherwise, upgrading the current system can also help.
  • If you are experiencing a clogged sump pump, have the system inspected by an expert to find the root of the issue. The discharge line is most likely blocked.

Typical Causes of Sump Pump Failure


Like anything mechanical, overuse can burn out a motor.


Many things can clog up the pump, such as mud, dirt, and debris. Also, check that the water intake screen isn't blocked. The water discharge pipe can also clog; this will stop the pump from being able to remove the sump water.


Many essential components, like the driveshaft or float switch, can break. This will bring things to a halt.

Switch Issues

A disconnected or stuck float switch can cause your sump pump to fail.


Don't rule out simple household issues such as being unplugged by mistake, power outages, or a blown fuse. Remember, power outages usually happen during severe storms!
