Continue for more about a few of the most frequent causes of water damage below:

Bad Weather

Bad storms will test any building’s foundation. When weather becomes dangerous, water becomes a powerful force. Be it a flash flood, hurricane, or winter storm, if water harms your home or business, it’s a serious issue. No one can be prepared for every scenario, but if something goes wrong, you can rely on us.

Basement Flooding

Cellars are a target for runoff water, be it from precipitation, a leaky roof, a malfunctioning water pump, or any other source. It just takes a single crack in the basement for moisture to flow in. Paul Davis professionals are highly trained to eliminate water from basements, sanitize and restore your home goods, and dry everything quickly to minimize damage. We don’t stop until we know that the job is done.

Problems from Sewer Backups

Sewer back up is not just nasty, it’s hazardous. Grey or black water contamination carries microbes that may lead to serious illness. Backup from sewer blockages should be considered a crisis and be handled right away. Certified Paul Davis emergency responders comb through and remove the damage from the backup and all standing water damage may have occurred. Our tools and specialized training can solve the hazard with efficiency and quality.

Appliance Leaks & Busted Pipes

If a faucet, tub, washing machine or other appliance leaks, the outcome can vary from annoying to devastating. Stagnant water left on the floor can drain into tight spots, and pool in hard-to-reach places. You may cause wood damage and invite a mold contamination. If your water damage results from sewage or dishwasher overflow, you additionally risk spreading pathogens. Have an emergency specialist investigate the area to prevent more costs later on.

Firefighting Runoff

It’s terrible enough for a home or business to sustain fire damage, but it’s even worse to be left with water damage in the days after the fire. In the process of killing a home fire, your home or business may be left soaked. Such a surplus of home damage can leave your space ruined. Paul Davis Emergency Services has the training to eliminate all fire or water damage remaining.
