Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Heavy Storms Caused Sump Pump Failure

Heavy spring/fall rainfall in Michigan can cause sump pumps to fail quite often, and the sump pump of this business did just that. Along with the help of a plumber to get the sump pump back in working order, our crew was able to get the standing water extracted and prevent any further damage from occurring.
