Causes of Flood Damage

Water damage takes many shapes and can strike even the most organized business or home. Various flood damage circumstances require appropriate treatments. Regardless of the origin or amount of flood damage in your home or business, Paul Davis Emergency Services work quickly and effectively.

These are some of the most typical causes of water damage:

Rain Damage

Long periods of rainfall can put any structure’s integrity on trial. If storms become serious, water becomes a destructive force. Whether it’s a flash flood, hurricane, or blizzard, when water harms your home or business, it becomes a serious issue. No one can be ready for every scenario, but when something goes wrong, you’ll have our expertise.

Flooding in the Basement

Cellars attract lots of runoff water, whether from rain, a leaky roof, a malfunctioning water pump, or any other source. It only takes one ding in the cellar for water to flow in. Paul Davis specialists are highly trained to remove water from basements, clean and preserve your possessions, and dry everything quickly to minimize damage. Our team doesn’t stop until we know that the work is complete.

Issues from Sewer Spills

Sewer flooding is not only gross, it’s dangerous. Grey or black water contamination contains microbes that may result in serious illness. Flooding caused by sewer blockages should be considered a crisis and should be remedied right away. Certified Paul Davis emergency responders inspect and remove the damage from the backup and any standing water damage may have happened. Our tools and specialized training will solve the issues with efficiency and speed.

Broken Pipes & Appliance Malfunctions

If a sink, tub, washing machine or other appliance breaks, the outcome can vary from annoying to devastating. Standing water on the floor can drain into tight spots, collecting in out of reach areas. You may cause floor damage and harbor a mold invasion. If your water damage comes from bathroom or dishwasher overflow, you additionally risk spreading pathogens. Have a professional inspect the situation to avoid larger expenses down the road.

Firefighting Runoff

It’s terrible enough for a home or business to sustain fire damage, but it’s even worse to be left with water damage after the fire. In the process of killing a home fire, your property may be left soaked. Such a one-two punch of severe damage can leave your area ruined. Paul Davis has the skills to remove any fire or water damage left.
