High Winds In The Forecast, No Problem!

It seems that the WNY area has been experiencing a number of high wind storms this year. And, as we prepare to enter the Holiday season we will encounter another one. Winds up to 60 mph are expected in the area, and that can cause some significant storm damage to your home. On top of the high winds, our Buffalo, NY area could experience some heavy thunder and rain storms. This weather is setting the stage for some potentially serious damage.

Should the power go out in these storms, your sump pump is at major risk. With the heavy thunder storms predicted, all that rain can cause a sump pump overflow and major water damage to your home. Something we recommend to help you prevent a sump pump overflow during a power outage is a battery back-up or a water detection device. Both of these items are relatively inexpensive and can be found at local Hamburg, NY hardware stores. They can help cover the sump pump until you can access it, and alert you should water start to overflow.

Another preventative tip that we recommend is to be sure there are no dead, or potentially dangerous tree limbs near your home. Should one of those branches fall on your home during a rain storm, not only do you have reconstruction that needs to be done, but the rain will cause additional water damage as well!

Should you experience any water damage during these storms this year, please call the professionals at SERVPRO of The Southtowns to make it, “Like it never even happened.” Our office is always available to you at (716) 646-6684.
