Sump Pump Installation & Replacement Services in Akron & Northeast Ohio
Northeast Ohio residents are no strangers to heavy rains and frequent flooding. Like the tornadoes of Kansas and the earthquakes of California, intense rainfall is the geographical hazard that comes with this territory. One of the most common problems caused by flooding? Water in the basement. Fortunately, modern plumbing technology offers a solution to this constant threat in the form of the sump pump. Blind & Sons has been installing and replacing high-quality submersible sump pumps in the area for decades, and we are ready to help you keep your basement dry.

What Exactly Does a Sump Pump Do?
A submersible sump pump is a small device that rests in your sump pit and collects water using suction. When the water level rises to a certain level, it activates the pump’s switch, the pump kicks on, and the water is safely removed before it can cause any damage.
Why a Sump Pump Is a Necessity in Akron & Northeast Ohio
When it rains (and it will rain), it pours.
This area gets some of the heaviest rain in the state – up to 39.6 inches a year on average! If you’ve been putting off that sump pump replacement or installation thinking, “Oh, this won’t be a problem for months!” or “I’m sure my basement won’t flood. It looks pretty airtight,” we promise you … what can go wrong likely will go wrong when it comes to flooding. The smartest thing to do is proactively mitigate the risk with a good basement or crawl space sump pump before a major rain hits.
More than your knickknacks are at risk.
Yes, six inches of water on the basement floor likely means that baseball card collection is kaput. It also probably means putting literally everything not nailed down in the sun to dry. But did you know that basement flooding can also seriously threaten your home’s structural integrity? Sometimes the damage is so bad, it can cause an inward collapse of the walls. The risk of damage like this plummets with the installation of a high-quality basement sump pump.
Sump pumps protect the health of you and your family.
In addition to the obvious problem a collapsed basement poses, the water damage caused by basement flooding can also mean mold and mildew growth. Mold and mildew can adversely affect your indoor air quality and cause or exacerbate a host of respiratory problems in humans such as allergies, bronchitis, and more. A new sump pump reduces or eliminates standing water, which in turn reduces basement dampness and makes the environment for mold and mildew spores tougher.
