Prevent Basement Flooding from Summer Storms
Summer is a time for fun, adventure, and relaxation; that shouldn’t be interrupted by a flood in your basement. Summer comes with a lot of fun, but it can also come with a lot of rain. If your basement has ever flooded due to a summer storm, you know exactly the kind of damper it can be. Here are some tips we at Blinds & Sons have gathered to help ensure that your basement is safe from flooding.
Check Your Gutters Frequently
As a homeowner in Ohio, checking your gutters for possible clogs is a must. The purpose of your rain gutter is to direct rainwater away from your home, but, over time the gutter can become clogged with leaves, dirt, and other debris. When the gutter becomes clogged, the water is forced to dump directly below them onto the foundation around your house, making its way into your basement. Make it a habit to check and clean out your home’s gutters to avoid any access water in your basement.
Schedule a Foundation Inspection
A crack in your home’s foundation can lead to big leaks if they go unnoticed. If you have a crack in your home’s foundation after a big storm, your basement may be at risk of flooding. To prevent this, consider hiring a professional to inspect your basement and the foundation for any cracks and leaks. We offer 24-hour emergency plumbing services, so give us a call at any time, and we’ll assist you with any plumbing crisis!

Service Any Blocked Sewer Lines
A bad connection between your home’s sewer line and the main sewer pipe in the street can result in a backup that could lead to a flooded basement. The city could be responsible for unclogging any clogged pipes. However, if you’re the one in charge of getting the pipes cleared, you can give us a call, and we’ll make sure to repair any backed-up sewer lines and have your home flood-free!

Invest in a Sump Pump
A sump pump is a small pump that lays in the lowest part of your basement and directs any excess rainwater away from your house to prevent flooding. Installing a sump pump is an excellent investment to prevent unwanted water from ruining your belongings or messing with your summer fun. Have your sump pump installed by a trusted provider like Blind & Sons, and your investment can last you up to 10 years!
