Causes of Flood Damage

Water damage happens in several various ways and can harm even the most equipped business or home. Various water damage circumstances need special answers. Whatever the cause or size of water damage in your home or business, Paul Davis Emergency Services act quickly and efficiently.

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

Storm Damage

Bad storms will test any structure’s integrity. If weather becomes intense, water becomes a powerful force. Whether it’s a flash flood, tornado, or blizzard, when water hits your home or business, it becomes a serious problem. No one can be ready for every scenario, but when issues occur, you’ll have our help.

Flooding in the Basement

Basements are a target for runoff water, be it from rain, roof damage, a malfunctioning sump pump, or some other source. It only takes a single crack in the cellar for water to invade. Paul Davis experts are highly trained to remove water from basements, sanitize and preserve your home goods, and dry everything quickly to lessen the damage. We don’t quit until we have confirmed that the task is done.

Issues with Sewer Backups

Sewer back up is not only gross, it’s dangerous. Grey or black water pollution contains pathogens that may lead to infection. Flooding caused by sewer blockages can be considered a crisis and be remedied right away. Trained Paul Davis emergency responders evaluate and eliminate the damage from the backup and all standing water damage may have occurred. Our equipment and years of education will eliminate the issues with efficiency and speed.

Broken Pipes & Appliance Leaks

If a sink, bathtub, washing machine or other appliance floods, the outcome can vary from irritating to devastating. Standing water on the floor can seep into the foundation, collecting in hard-to-reach areas. You then cause wood damage and invite a mold contamination. If your water damage comes from sewage or kitchen overflow, you additionally risk harboring pathogens. Have a professional inspect the situation to prevent further expenses later on.

Firefighting Runoff

It’s terrible enough for a home or business to take on fire damage, but it’s worse to be stuck with water damage after the fire. In the steps of killing a home fire, your property may be left soaked. Such a one-two punch of home damage can leave your area ruined. Paul Davis has the training to remove all fire or water damage remaining.
