Causes of Water Damage


Water damage occurs in several various ways and can harm even the most equipped business or home. Assorted water damage scenarios deserve special solutions. Regardless of the cause or amount of water damage in your business, Paul Davis Emergency Services work fast and professionally.

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

Weather Damage

Heavy rainfall can put any structure’s foundation on trial. When storms become serious, water becomes a strong force. Whether it’s a flood, tornado, or winter storm, if water hits your home or business, it’s a grave problem. Nobody is prepared for a problem like this, but if something goes wrong, you can depend on us.

Flooding in the Basement

Cellars draw in lots of runoff water, whether from precipitation, roof damage, a damaged sump pump, or other sources. It only takes one break in the basement for moisture to invade. Paul Davis experts are highly trained to remove water from basements, sanitize and preserve your possessions, and dry everything effectively to lessen the damage. We don’t rest until we have confirmed that the task is done.

Sewer Backups & Malfunctions

Sewer flooding is not only gross, it’s dangerous. Grey or black water contamination spreads microbes that can result in infection. Backup from sewer blockages should be considered an emergency and be handled right away. Certified Paul Davis technicians comb through and eliminate the damage from the source and all standing water damage may have occurred. Our tools and years of education can solve the problem with safety and quality.

Busted Plumbing & Appliance Malfunctions

If your sink, bathtub, water heater or any other appliance breaks, the outcome can vary from irritating to hazardous. Stagnant water on the floor can drain into the foundation, and pool in hard-to-reach areas. You may cause wood damage and harbor a mold invasion. If your water damage comes from sewage or dishwasher malfunction, you additionally risk spreading illnesses. Have an emergency professional inspect the situation to avoid further expenses down the road.

Water after Fire Damage

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