Do you have Sewer and Drain coverage to protect if you basement gets wet?
South Suburban Homes including Plainfield, Naperville, Aurora, and Bolingbrook have experienced problems in the past with sump pumps failing, not keeping up, or power outages which cause wet basements. If you have ever gone through this experience, you can attest it is most difficult and unpleasant.
Once a basement experiences water it should be cleaned up professionally so mold does not grow and air quality affected. Sewer and drain coverage’s comes in $5000.00 increments. It will cover the clean up and lost personal property damaged by water that comes up from a sump pit or floor drain.
Battery back ups are another excellent form of protection for the home as well as water alarms that can be purchased at home stores.
