Sump pumps can fail.
Sump pumps are usually a great thing for most people. Unfortunately they may not always be capable of handling the heaviest of rains. As you can see in the before photo the sump pump backup caused several inches of standing water. The water expanded from that room out into the customers main living areas as well causing major stress and worry. We set up our dehumidifiers and air movers and did the necessary demolition to make sure that all the materials were dry. In the after photo you can see that drywall had to be removed to dry the materials out properly.
