Learn more about several of the most typical types of water damage below:

Weather Damage

Long periods of rain can test any building’s foundation. If storms become serious, water becomes a powerful element. Whether it’s a flash flood, hurricane, or blizzard, if water harms your property, it’s a serious problem. Nobody is prepared for every scenario, but if water damage strikes, you’ll have our expertise.

Subterranean Flooding

Underground rooms attract lots of runoff water, be it from rain, a leaky roof, a broken water pump, or other sources. It only takes a single crack in the basement for moisture to invade. Paul Davis professionals are highly trained to remove flooding from basements, sanitize and restore your home goods, and dry everything effectively to minimize damage. Our team doesn’t quit until we verify that the task is done.

Sewer Leaks & Malfunctions

Sewer flooding is not only disgusting, it’s a health concern. Grey or black water pollution spreads microbes that can result in infection. Flooding resulting from sewer blockages should be considered a crisis and should be handled right away. Qualified Paul Davis technicians inspect and remove the damage from the sewage and all standing water damage may have occurred. Our technology and specialized education will eliminate the problem with safety and quality.

Appliance Malfunctions & Busted Pipes

If a sink, tub, washing machine or other appliance breaks, the outcome can vary from annoying to devastating. Stagnant flooding left on the floor can drain into the foundation, collecting in hard-to-reach areas. You may cause wood damage and harbor a mold invasion. If your water damage results from toilet or dishwasher malfunction, you additionally risk harboring pathogens. Have a specialist investigate the situation to avoid further costs later on.

Water after Fire Damage

It’s tragic enough for a home to take on fire damage, but it’s worse to be left with water damage after the fire. In the process of killing an indoor fire, your home or business can be left with water damage. This one-two punch of severe damage can leave your space devastated. Paul Davis Emergency Services has the expertise to remove all fire or water damage remaining.
