Two houses are partially under water after a flood. SERVPRO of Central Buffalo helps when major storms and flooding devastate communities. We go anywhere where we are needed.

In June 2022, several records were broken for high temperatures across the country. Experts believe this is only a beginning of what will be a very hot summer. In the south, records are being set for consecutive days of low temps over 90 degrees. This is where there is no relief from the heat. High heat and prolonged drought are creating conditions for flash flooding in these areas, even if rains do fall. Because the ground is too dry to absorb water quickly, if there's a heavy rain or tropical storm, it will be difficult for the ground to absorb enough water. These large rain events are common during hurricane season. It has been slow-moving tropical storms and hurricanes with tons of moisture that have caused most property damage to residential and commercial properties in the United States over the years. It is impossible to plan for these kinds of storms. People should listen to local authorities, and be prepared to evacuate if their commercial or residential property is affected by flooding or storms. If damage occurs, we will be available to assist. Our experienced team of storm management and disaster recovery technicians is ready for any major storm in New England, New York, or anywhere else in the country.
