Bad Weather

Long periods of rain can put any building’s foundation to the test. If storms become intense, water becomes a destructive element. Whether it’s a flash flood, hurricane, or winter storm, if water harms your home or business, it becomes a grave matter. No one can be prepared for a problem like this, but if something goes wrong, our help is available.

Subterranean Flooding

Basements draw in lots of runoff water, whether from rain, a leaky roof, a broken water pump, or some other source. It only takes one ding in the foundation for moisture to invade. Paul Davis experts are highly trained to remove flooding from cellars, clean and preserve your possessions, and dry everything fast to lessen the damage. Our team doesn’t stop until we verify that the job is complete.

Sewage Spills & Malfunctions

Sewage flooding is not only nasty, it’s hazardous. Grey or black water contamination contains pathogens that can result in infection. Flooding resulting from sewer clogs should be considered an emergency and be remedied right away. Qualified Paul Davis emergency responders inspect and eliminate the damage from the sewage and all standing water damage may have occurred. Our equipment and years of education can fix the issues with safety and speed.

Broken Plumbing & Appliance Malfunctions

If a faucet, bathtub, water heater or other appliance leaks, the outcome can range from irritating to devastating. Stagnant flooding left on the floor can drain into the foundation, and pool in hard-to-reach areas. You then cause wood damage and invite a mold infestation. If your water damage starts from sewage or kitchen overflow, you additionally risk spreading illnesses. Have a specialist investigate the situation to avoid more expenses down the road.

Firefighting Runoff

It’s terrible enough for a property to take on fire damage, but it’s worse to be left with water damage in the days after the fire. In the process of extinguishing an indoor fire, your home or business can be left with water damage. Such a one-two punch of home damage can leave your space ruined. Paul Davis Emergency Services has the skills to remove all fire or water damage left.
