Rain Damage

Serious weather can test any building’s integrity. When weather gets dangerous, water becomes a strong element. Whether it’s a flood, hurricane, or blizzard, if water harms your property, it becomes a serious problem. Nobody is prepared for every scenario, but if water damage strikes, you’ll have our help.

Subterranean Flooding

Cellars attract lots of runoff water, whether from precipitation, roof damage, a damaged water pump, or other sources. It only takes one break in the basement for water to flow in. Paul Davis experts are highly trained to remove flooding from cellars, clean and restore your possessions, and dry everything fast to lessen the damage. We don’t rest until we know that the task is done.

Problems from Sewage Backups

Sewage back up is not only repellent, it’s dangerous. Grey or black water pollution carries pathogens that can lead to infection. Flooding caused by sewer blockages should be designated as a crisis and should be remedied right away. Qualified Paul Davis emergency responders comb through and remove the damage from the source and all stagnant water damage may have occurred. Our tools and specialized education will fix the hazard with efficiency and quality.

Broken Plumbing & Appliance Leaks

If a faucet, tub, water heater or any other appliance floods, the outcome can range from annoying to hazardous. Stagnant flooding left on the floor can seep into the foundation, collecting in hard-to-reach areas. You may cause wood damage and harbor a mold infestation. If your water damage starts from sewage or dishwasher malfunction, you additionally risk fostering pathogens. Have an emergency professional inspect the area to avoid more expenses down the road.

Firefighting Runoff

It’s bad enough for a property to take on fire damage, but it’s worse to be stuck with water damage after the fire. In the steps of extinguishing an indoor fire, your property can be left soaked. Such a one-two punch of severe damage can leave your area ruined. Paul Davis Emergency Services has the training to remove all fire or water damage left.
