Bad Weather

Heavy rain will put any building’s integrity to the test. When storms get intense, water becomes a strong element. Be it a flash flood, tornado, or blizzard, if water hits your property, it becomes a grave problem. No one can be ready for every scenario, but if water damage strikes, you can depend on Paul Davis.

Subterranean Flooding

Underground rooms draw in lots of runoff water, whether from precipitation, a leaky roof, a malfunctioning water pump, or any other source. It just takes one ding in the foundation for moisture to flow in. Paul Davis specialists are highly trained to remove water from cellars, sanitize and restore your possessions, and dry everything fast to lessen the damage. Our team doesn’t quit until we know that the task is finished.

Problems from Sewage Backups

Sewage flooding is not just disgusting, it’s dangerous. Grey or black water contamination contains pathogens that may lead to infection. Backup caused by sewer blockages can be designated as a crisis and be remedied immediately. Qualified Paul Davis emergency responders evaluate and eliminate the damage from the sewage and all standing water damage may have occurred. Our equipment and years of training will solve the hazard with efficiency and speed.

Appliance Malfunctions & Damaged Pipes

If a faucet, bathtub, water heater or any other appliance leaks, the outcome can vary from irritating to devastating. Standing water left on the floor can drain into the foundation, collecting in hard-to-reach places. You then cause wood damage and invite a mold infestation. If your water damage starts from sewage or dishwasher overflow, you additionally risk fostering illnesses. Have a professional inspect the situation to avoid 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 left with water damage after the blaze. In the process of killing an indoor fire, your home or business may be left with water damage. Such a one-two punch of severe damage can leave your area devastated. Paul Davis Emergency Services has the skills to remove all fire or water damage remaining.
