Causes of Water Damage

Water damage takes many shapes and can harm even the most prepared business or homeowner. Various flood damage scenarios need different treatments. Whatever the cause or scale of flood damage in your business, Paul Davis Emergency Services respond quickly and efficiently.

These are some of the most typical causes of water damage:

Natural Causes

Severe storms can put any structure’s integrity to the test. When storms become intense, water becomes a powerful element. Whether it’s a flood, hurricane, or blizzard, when water hits your property, it’s a serious issue. Nobody is ready for every scenario, but when water damage strikes, you’ll have our expertise.

Subterranean Flooding

Basements attract lots of runoff water, whether from precipitation, roof damage, a damaged sump pump, or any other source. It only takes one crack in the cellar for water to invade. Paul Davis experts are highly qualified to eliminate water from cellars, sanitize and restore your home goods, and dry everything quickly to minimize damage. We don’t rest until we know that the work is done.

Problems with Sewer Backups

Sewer back up is not only gross, it’s hazardous. Grey or black water contamination contains toxins that may lead to infection. Flooding resulting from sewer clogs should be designated as a crisis and be handled right away. Qualified Paul Davis technicians evaluate and remove the damage from the backup and any stagnant water damage may have happened. Our equipment and years of training will eliminate the hazard with efficiency and speed.

Damaged Plumbing & Appliance Leaks

If a sink, tub, water heater or any other appliance breaks, the outcome can vary from bothersome to devastating. Standing water on the floor can drain into the foundation, and pool in hard-to-reach areas. You then cause floor damage and harbor a mold invasion. If your water damage results from bathroom or kitchen overflow, you additionally risk spreading microbes. Have a specialist inspect the area to avoid further expenses later on.

Firefighting Runoff

It’s bad enough for a property to sustain fire damage, but it’s even worse to be stuck with water damage after the blaze. In the process of extinguishing an indoor fire, your home or business may be left soaked. This surplus of severe damage can leave your area ruined. Paul Davis Emergency Services has the training to eliminate any fire or water damage left.
