Water Damage in a Commercial Building

A business in Williamsville had a roof leak after heavy rains causing all the ceiling tiles to get full of water.  SERVPRO of Amherst/Clarence responded to their needs by removing the wet ceiling tiles, removing the ceiling debris from the floor, cleaning desks, floor cleaning and dried out the structure with drying equipment.  Crews worked through the night.

When you are dealing with water damage, immediate action is crucial. SERVPRO Franchise Professionals respond immediately and use advanced equipment and techniques to remove the water quickly. They closely monitor and document the drying process to verify your property is dried properly and thoroughly.

Storm Damage from Heavy Rains

Heavy rains caused the sump pump to overwork and eventually malfunctioned and burned out.  SERVPRO pumped out the basement and set up drying equipment.  The SERVPRO crew assisted the customer with inventory of the contents that got water damaged.

Sewage Back Up Due To Amherst Rain Storm

When a sewage leak, overflow, backup, or flood strikes upon a commercial property, it can mean devastating reactions. Call SERVPRO of Amherst/Clarence to assist.

Cat 3 water otherwise known as "black water" is filled with dangerous bacteria.

Storms Cause Basements to Flood

Heavy rains frequently can cause a sewer backup, and sudden downpours do occur much more frequently than ever before in Buffalo, NY. Many sewers frequently back up during, and even after, heavy rainfalls. Property owners can be left with inches of CAT 3 water in their basements due to a public drain system being overburdened.  SERVPRO of Amherst/Clarence was happy they could assist in this clean up.

CAT 2 Sump Pump Failure

A Category 2 water loss refers to a source of water that contains a significant degree of chemical, biological, or physical contaminants and causes discomfort or sickness when exposed or consumed. Known as "Gray Water," this type of water damage carries microorganisms and nutrients of microorganisms. 

Sources of Category 2 water losses include toilet bowls with urine (no feces), sump pump failures, seepage due to hydrostatic failure, and water discharge from dishwashers or washing machines.


No one wants to come home after a long rainy day at work to discover sewage in your basement.  Our SERVPRO  crews respond 24 hours a day. Category 3 water loss involves water that is grossly contaminated and can contain pathogenic, toxigenic, or other harmful agents. Such water may carry silt, organic matter, pesticides, heavy metals, regulated materials, or toxic organic substances. 

SERVPRO Franchise Professionals specialize in water damage restoration, the cornerstone of our business. They have extensive water damage restoration training with an emphasis on monitoring and documenting the drying process until completion.
