Flooding in the Basement

Basements draw in lots of runoff water, be it from precipitation, roof damage, a damaged sump pump, or other sources. It just takes a single break in the basement for moisture to flow in.

Our team doesn’t rest until we verify that the work is done.

Problems with Sewage Leaks

Sewage flooding is not just disgusting, it’s dangerous. Grey or black water contamination contains pathogens that may lead to serious illness. Flooding from sewer clogs should be designated as a crisis and should be dealt with immediately. Qualified Paul Davis emergency responders inspect and remove the damage from the sewage and all stagnant water damage may have occurred. Our tools and specialized education will fix the hazard with efficiency and speed.

Busted Pipes & Appliance Malfunctions

If your sink, bathtub, washing machine or other appliance floods, the outcome can range from irritating to hazardous. Stagnant water on the floor can drain into the foundation, and pool in hard-to-reach areas. You then cause wood damage and harbor a mold contamination. If your water damage results from toilet or dishwasher malfunction, you additionally risk spreading illnesses. Have an emergency professional investigate the situation to avoid more expenses down the road.

Firefighting Runoff

It’s terrible enough for your home to take on fire damage, but it’s even worse to be stuck with water damage in the days after the fire. In the process of killing an indoor fire, your home or business may be left with water damage. This one-two punch of home damage can leave your space ruined. Paul Davis has the skills to remove all fire or water damage remaining.
