Serious weather can test any structure’s integrity. If weather becomes serious, water becomes a powerful element. Whether it’s a flash flood, tornado, or blizzard, when water hits your home or business, it becomes a grave matter. No one can be prepared for a problem like this, but when issues occur, you’ll have our expertise.
Flooding in the Basement
Cellars are a target for runoff water, whether from precipitation, a leaky roof, a damaged sump pump, or any other source. It only takes a single crack in the foundation for moisture to flow in. Paul Davis professionals are highly trained to eliminate water from cellars, sanitize and preserve your possessions, and dry everything quickly to lessen the damage. We don’t quit until we verify that the work is finished.
Issues from Sewer Leaks
Sewer back up is not only repellent, it’s hazardous. Black or grey water pollution spreads microbes that may result in infection. Backup from sewer clogs can be considered a crisis and should be remedied immediately. Qualified Paul Davis technicians comb through and eliminate the damage from the backup and any stagnant water damage may have occurred. Our tools and years of training can fix the issues with efficiency and speed.
Appliance Malfunctions & Busted Pipes
If a sink, bathtub, water heater or other appliance floods, the outcome can vary from bothersome to hazardous. Standing water left on the floor can drain into tight spots, and pool in hard-to-reach places. You then cause wood damage and harbor a mold contamination. If your water damage results from toilet or dishwasher overflow, you additionally risk fostering microbes. Have a professional inspect the situation to prevent additional costs later on.
Water after Fire Damage
It’s terrible enough for a home to sustain fire damage, but it’s even worse to be stuck with water damage after the fire. In the process of killing a home fire, your property may be left soaked. This one-two punch of home damage can leave your space ruined. Paul Davis has the expertise to eliminate any fire or water damage left.
