Ontario’s weather is notoriously difficult to predict, making it impossible to give adequate notice of impending disasters. Extreme weather like monsoons, blizzards, and hurricanes may wreak havoc on your home, especially the basement. During rainy periods, water may accumulate to the point where it floods a basement.
You may be asking if you can take any action to avoid this happening. Should you just cross your fingers and hope it never happens to you, or should you actively seek out a remedy? Some people may advise you to file an insurance claim to compensate for your losses, but it won’t help if your family treasures were destroyed in the disaster. Installing a sump pump is one of the best preventative actions you can take to safeguard your house and possessions against these kinds of disasters.
