If your home or commercial building has a basement, you should have a sump pump. These devices mechanically pump water away from your foundation in order to protect it from water damage and mold.
To ensure that your sump pump is in good working order, make sure the pit where it is installed is clear of debris. Periodically, test your sump pump by slowly pouring water into the pit until the float turns it on. If the sump pump does not automatically activate, contact a professional to repair it. Watch this video for more information about sump pumps.
