Since kitchens are prone to damp conditions, the first way to inhibit the same is by introducing a robust drainage mechanism. Sumps serve as an ideal drainage system by preventing water from flooding your kitchen.
They also help prevent the damaging consequences, which are often a result of poor plumbing and lack of quality waterproofing. They eventually contribute towards:
Controlling the appearance of mold and mildew due to high moisture content.
Preventing termites and insects from infesting the kitchen after installation which occur due to a moist environment .
