Causes of Water Damage

Water damage happens in several various ways and can strike even the most organized business or homeowner. Different water damage scenarios deserve different answers. Whatever the cause or size of water damage in your business, Paul Davis Emergency Services respond quickly and efficiently.

These are a few of the most typical reasons for water damage:

Storm Damage

Serious weather will put any building’s foundation to the test. If weather becomes intense, water becomes a strong force. Be it a flash flood, tornado, or blizzard, if water hits your home or business, it becomes a grave problem. No one can be prepared for every scenario, but if something goes wrong, you’ll have our help.

Flooding in the Basement

Basements are magnets for runoff water, be it from rain, a leaky roof, a malfunctioning water pump, or some other source. It only takes one break in the foundation for moisture to flow in. Paul Davis experts are highly qualified to eliminate flooding from basements, sanitize and restore your possessions, and dry everything effectively to minimize damage. We don’t stop until we have confirmed that the job is finished.

Issues from Sewage Backups

Sewage back up is not only nasty, it’s a health concern. Black or grey water contamination spreads pathogens that may result in infection. Flooding caused by sewer clogs can be designated as an emergency and be dealt with right away. Trained Paul Davis emergency responders evaluate and remove the damage from the source and any standing water damage may have occurred. Our tools and years of education will solve the problem with efficiency and quality.

Broken Pipes & Appliance Leaks

If your sink, tub, washing machine or other appliance floods, the outcome can vary from irritating to hazardous. Standing flooding left on the floor can drain into the foundation, collecting in hard-to-reach places. You then cause wood damage and invite a mold invasion. If your water damage comes from bathroom or kitchen overflow, you additionally risk spreading illnesses. Have an emergency professional inspect the situation to avoid additional expenses down the road.

Firefighting Runoff

It’s tragic enough for your home or business to take on fire damage, but it’s even worse to be stuck with water damage in the days after the blaze. In the process of killing an indoor fire, your home or business may be left soaked. This one-two punch of severe damage can leave your space ruined. Paul Davis Emergency Services has the expertise to eliminate any fire or water damage left.
