Serious Water Damage Scenarios


Water damage takes many shapes and can strike even the most prepared business or homeowner. Assorted water damage causes deserve special answers. Regardless of the source or amount of water damage in your business, Paul Davis Emergency Services work quickly and professionally.

These are a few of the most common causes of water damage:

Mother Nature

Bad storms can test any building’s integrity. When weather gets dangerous, water becomes a strong element. Whether it’s a flood, tornado, or blizzard, when water harms your home or business, it becomes a serious matter. Nobody is ready for every scenario, but when something goes wrong, you can rely on Paul Davis.

Underground Flooding

Basements attract lots of runoff water, be it from rain, a leaky roof, a malfunctioning sump pump, or some other source. It just takes one ding in the foundation for moisture to invade. Paul Davis professionals are highly qualified to remove water from cellars, clean and restore your home goods, and dry everything fast to minimize damage. Our team doesn’t stop until we have confirmed that the job is done.

Sewage Backups & Problems

Sewage flooding is not just gross, it’s a health concern. Grey or black water contamination carries pathogens that may result in infection. Flooding from sewer clogs should be designated as a crisis and be dealt with immediately. Trained Paul Davis emergency responders inspect and eliminate the damage from the backup and all standing water damage may have happened. Our technology and specialized training can fix the issues with safety and speed.

Broken Plumbing & Appliance Malfunctions

If your sink, tub, water heater or any other appliance floods, the outcome can vary from annoying to hazardous. 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 infestation. If your water damage comes from sewage or kitchen overflow, you additionally risk spreading illnesses. Call an emergency professional inspect the situation to prevent additional costs down the road.

Firefighting Runoff

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