Causes of Flood Damage


Water damage happens in many different ways and can harm even the most organized business or home. Assorted water damage scenarios deserve special solutions. Regardless of the origin or amount of water damage in your business, Paul Davis Emergency Services act quickly and professionally.

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

Mother Nature

Severe storms can put any building’s foundation to the test. If storms get serious, water becomes a destructive element. Whether it’s a flood, tornado, or winter storm, if water hits your property, it’s a grave problem. No one can be prepared for every scenario, but if water damage strikes, you’ll have our help.

Basement Flooding

Underground rooms attract lots of runoff water, be it from precipitation, roof damage, a broken sump pump, or other sources. It just takes one crack in the cellar for water to invade. Paul Davis specialists are highly trained to eliminate water from cellars, sanitize and preserve your possessions, and dry everything quickly to minimize damage. Our team doesn’t stop until we have confirmed that the job is finished.

Sewage Backups & Malfunctions

Sewage flooding is not just nasty, it’s a health concern. Black or grey water contamination spreads microbes that can lead to serious illness. Backup from sewer blockages should be designated as a crisis and be handled immediately. Qualified Paul Davis emergency responders inspect and eliminate the damage from the sewage and any standing water damage may have happened. Our equipment and specialized education will eliminate the hazard with safety and quality.

Appliance Leaks & Damaged Plumbing

If a sink, bathtub, washing machine or any other appliance floods, the outcome can range from irritating to devastating. Stagnant water left on the floor can drain into the foundation, collecting in hard-to-reach areas. You may cause floor damage and invite a mold infestation. If your water damage starts from toilet or kitchen malfunction, you additionally risk spreading microbes. Have an emergency specialist investigate the situation to avoid more costs later on.

Firefighting Runoff

It’s tragic enough for a property to sustain fire damage, but it’s even worse to be left with water damage after the blaze. In the process of extinguishing a home fire, your property can be left soaked. This one-two punch of home damage can leave your area devastated. Paul Davis has the expertise to eliminate any fire or water damage left.
