Causes of Water Damage

Water damage occurs in many various ways and can hit even the most prepared business or home. Assorted flood damage scenarios deserve different solutions. Regardless of the source or scale of flood damage in your business, Paul Davis Emergency Services work fast and efficiently. These are some of the most common causes of water damage:

Natural Causes

Serious weather will put any building's integrity on trial. If weather gets dangerous, water becomes a powerful force. Whether it's a flash flood, tornado, or blizzard, if water hits your property, it's a serious problem. Nobody is ready for a problem like this, but if issues occur, our expertise is available.

Flooding in the Basement

Basements are a target for runoff water, be it from precipitation, roof damage, a broken sump pump, or some other source. It only takes a single break in the cellar for water to flow in. Paul Davis specialists are highly trained to eliminate water from cellars, clean and restore your possessions, and dry everything effectively to minimize damage. We don't stop until we know that the job is finished.

Problems from Sewer Backups

Sewer flooding is not only gross, it's a health concern. Black or grey water contamination spreads toxins that may result in serious illness. Backup resulting from sewer clogs can be designated as an emergency and be dealt with immediately. Trained Paul Davis technicians comb through and remove the damage from the sewage and all stagnant water damage may have happened. Our tools and specialized education will solve the hazard with efficiency and quality.

Damaged Pipes & Appliance Malfunctions

If your sink, tub, water heater or any other appliance leaks, the outcome can vary from irritating to hazardous. Standing water left on the floor can seep into tight spots, and pool in out of reach places. You may cause wood damage and invite a mold invasion. If your water damage results from sewage or kitchen overflow, you additionally risk spreading pathogens. Have an emergency specialist inspect the area to prevent larger costs later on.

Water after Fire Damage

It's terrible enough for your property to take on fire damage, but it's even worse to be left with water damage after the blaze. In the process of extinguishing an indoor fire, your home or business may be left soaked. This one-two punch of home damage can leave your area devastated. Paul Davis has the training to eliminate all fire or water damage remaining.
