Bad Weather

Long periods of rain will put any building’s foundation to the test. If storms get serious, water becomes a powerful element. Be it a flash flood, tornado, or winter storm, when water hits your home or business, it becomes a grave issue. Nobody is prepared for every scenario, but when something goes wrong, you’ll have our help.

Flooding in the Basement

Cellars attract lots of runoff water, whether from precipitation, a leaky roof, a broken sump pump, or any other source. It only takes a single crack in the foundation for moisture to flow in. Paul Davis experts are highly qualified to remove water from basements, clean and preserve your home goods, and dry everything quickly to minimize damage. Our team doesn’t quit until we know that the job is complete.

Sewer Backups & Problems

Sewer flooding is not only repellent, it’s a health concern. Black or grey water pollution spreads pathogens that can result in infection. Flooding caused by sewer blockages can be considered an emergency and be dealt with immediately. Trained Paul Davis technicians inspect and eliminate the damage from the backup and all standing water damage may have happened. Our equipment and specialized education will solve the problem with safety and speed.

Busted Plumbing & Appliance Malfunctions

If a sink, bathtub, washing machine or other appliance floods, the outcome can range from annoying to devastating. Standing water on the floor can seep into tight spots, collecting in hard-to-reach areas. You then cause wood damage and invite a mold invasion. If your water damage results from sewage or dishwasher malfunction, you additionally risk harboring pathogens. Have an emergency specialist inspect the situation to prevent more expenses later on.

Water after Fire Damage

It’s terrible enough for a home to take on fire damage, but it’s even worse to be left with water damage after the blaze. In the steps of extinguishing an indoor fire, your home or business can be left with water damage. This one-two punch of severe damage can leave your space devastated. Paul Davis has the training to remove all fire or water damage left.
