Causes of Flood Damage
Water damage takes many shapes and can hit even the most organized business or home. Assorted water damage scenarios require special answers. Whatever the source or size of water damage in your business, Paul Davis Emergency Services respond quickly and professionally.
These are some of the most common causes of water damage:
Bad storms can test any building’s integrity. If storms become intense, water becomes a destructive force. Whether it’s a flood, hurricane, or winter storm, when water harms your home or business, it’s a grave issue. No one can be ready for every scenario, but when something goes wrong, you’ll have our expertise.
Underground rooms are magnets for runoff water, whether from precipitation, roof damage, a malfunctioning water pump, or other sources. It only takes one ding in the cellar for water to flow in. Paul Davis professionals are highly trained to remove water from cellars, sanitize and restore your possessions, and dry everything effectively to minimize damage. We don’t quit until we verify that the job is finished.
Problems from Sewer Leaks
Sewer flooding is not only nasty, it’s hazardous. Grey or black water pollution carries microbes that can result in infection. Flooding resulting from sewer blockages can be considered an emergency and be remedied right away. Certified Paul Davis technicians inspect and remove the damage from the sewage and all standing water damage may have occurred. Our technology and years of education can solve the issues with safety and quality.
Busted Plumbing & Appliance Malfunctions
If a sink, bathtub, water heater or other appliance floods, the outcome can vary from irritating to devastating. Standing water left on the floor can drain into tight spots, collecting in out of reach places. You then cause floor damage and invite a mold infestation. If your water damage results from sewage or dishwasher malfunction, you additionally risk spreading pathogens. Have an emergency professional inspect the situation to prevent larger costs down the road.
Water after Fire Damage
It’s tragic enough for a property to sustain fire damage, but it’s worse to be left with water damage in the days after the fire. In the steps of killing an indoor fire, your property can be left soaked. Such a one-two punch of home damage can leave your area devastated. Paul Davis has the skills to remove all fire or water damage left.
