Causes of Water Damage


Water damage takes many shapes and can harm even the most prepared business or homeowner. Different water damage causes deserve special treatments. Whatever the source or amount of water damage in your business, Paul Davis Emergency Services work quickly and efficiently.

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

Mother Nature

Severe weather can put any building’s integrity on trial. If weather gets dangerous, water becomes a strong element. Whether it’s a flood, tornado, or winter storm, when water harms your property, it becomes a grave problem. No one can be ready for a problem like this, but when issues occur, you can depend on Paul Davis.

Flooding in the Basement

Cellars attract lots of runoff water, be it from rain, roof damage, a broken water pump, or other sources. It only takes a single crack in the foundation for moisture to flow in. Paul Davis specialists are highly trained to remove water from cellars, clean and preserve your home goods, and dry everything quickly to minimize damage. Our team doesn’t quit until we know that the work is complete.

Problems with Sewage Spills

Sewage back up is not only repellent, it’s hazardous. Grey or black water pollution contains toxins that may result in infection. Backup caused by sewer blockages can be designated as a crisis and should be dealt with immediately. Certified Paul Davis emergency responders inspect and remove the damage from the source and any standing water damage may have happened. Our equipment and years of education will eliminate the problem with safety and quality.

Appliance Leaks & Busted Pipes

If a sink, tub, washing machine or any other appliance leaks, the outcome can range from irritating to hazardous. Standing water on the floor can seep into tight spots, collecting in hard-to-reach areas. You then cause floor damage and invite a mold contamination. If your water damage results from toilet or kitchen overflow, you additionally risk spreading pathogens. Have an emergency specialist inspect the area to avoid larger expenses later on.

Water after Fire Damage

It’s tragic enough for a home to sustain fire damage, but it’s even worse to be stuck with water damage after the blaze. In the process of killing an indoor fire, your home or business may be left soaked. This surplus of severe damage can leave your space ruined. Paul Davis Emergency Services has the training to remove any fire or water damage left.
