Emergency Water Damage Scenarios


Water damage takes many forms and can harm even the most equipped business or homeowner. Different water damage scenarios deserve special solutions. Whatever the origin or scale of water damage in your home, Paul Davis Emergency Services respond quickly and effectively.

Learn more about a few of the most common kinds of water damage here:

Natural Causes

Severe storms will test any structure’s foundation. When storms become serious, water becomes a strong force. Whether it’s a flood, tornado, or winter storm, if water hits your property, it becomes a grave problem. No one can be ready for a problem like this, but if water damage strikes, you can depend on us.

Flooding in the Basement

Basements draw in lots of runoff water, be it from rain, a leaky roof, a broken water pump, or other sources. It only takes a single ding in the foundation for moisture to invade. Paul Davis specialists are highly trained to remove water from cellars, clean and restore your home goods, and dry everything fast to lessen the damage. Our team doesn’t rest until we have confirmed that the work is complete.

Issues from Sewage Leaks

Sewage back up is not only disgusting, it’s hazardous. Grey or black water contamination carries toxins that can lead to infection. Backup caused by sewer clogs should be considered a crisis and should be handled immediately. Certified Paul Davis emergency responders evaluate and remove the damage from the backup and all standing water damage may have occurred. Our tools and years of training can eliminate the problem with efficiency and quality.

Appliance Malfunctions & Busted Pipes

If your sink, bathtub, water heater or other appliance breaks, the outcome can range from annoying to hazardous. Standing water on the floor can drain into tight spots, collecting in hard-to-reach areas. You may cause wood damage and invite a mold invasion. If your water damage starts from toilet or dishwasher overflow, you additionally risk fostering pathogens. Have a specialist inspect the situation to avoid further expenses later on.

Water after Fire Damage

It’s tragic enough for your home to take on fire damage, but it’s even worse to be stuck with water damage after the blaze. In the steps of killing an indoor fire, your home or business can be left soaked. Such a one-two punch of home damage can leave your area devastated. Paul Davis Emergency Services has the skills to remove all fire or water damage left.
