Time is key when dealing with water damage. The experts at SERVPRO of The Southtowns are "Here to Help."

Increased rain during the fall and spring season in Buffalo often causes an increase of water damaged basements due to failed sump pumps and overwhelmed storm drains.

If you discover water damage in your home, the experts at SERVPRO of The Southtowns are Here to Help.

Time is key when it comes to stopping and restoring water damage.

SERVPRO of The Southtowns recommends these helpful tips until help arrives:


  • Remove as much excess water as possible by mopping and blotting.
  • Wipe excess water from wood furniture after removal of lamps and table top items.
  • Place aluminum foil or wood blocks between furniture legs and wet carpeting.


  • Leave wet fabrics in place; dry as soon as possible. Hang furs and leather goods to dry seperatly at room temperature.
