Emergency Flood Damage Scenarios


Water damage happens in several different ways and can strike even the most prepared business or homeowner. Different flood damage scenarios need appropriate answers. Regardless of the origin or size of flood damage in your home or business, Paul Davis Emergency Services respond fast and efficiently.

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

Weather Damage

Heavy rainfall will test any building’s foundation. When storms get intense, water becomes a powerful force. Be it a flash flood, tornado, or blizzard, if water harms your home or business, it becomes a serious matter. No one can be prepared for every scenario, but if issues occur, our expertise is available.

Flooding in the Basement

Basements draw in lots of runoff water, be it from precipitation, a leaky roof, a damaged sump pump, or other sources. It just takes a single crack in the cellar for moisture to flow in. Paul Davis specialists are highly qualified to remove water from basements, sanitize and preserve your home goods, and dry everything fast to lessen the damage. Our team doesn’t rest until we know that the task is done.

Problems with Sewer Spills

Sewer flooding is not just disgusting, it’s dangerous. Grey or black water pollution spreads microbes that can result in serious illness. Backup from sewer blockages should be designated as a crisis and should be handled immediately. Qualified Paul Davis emergency responders inspect and remove the damage from the source and any standing water damage may have occurred. Our technology and specialized training will fix the problem with efficiency and speed.

Broken Pipes & Appliance Malfunctions

If a sink, bathtub, washing machine or other appliance leaks, the outcome can range from irritating to hazardous. Stagnant water on the floor can seep into the foundation, collecting in hard-to-reach areas. You may cause wood damage and harbor a mold invasion. If your water damage comes from sewage or kitchen overflow, you additionally risk fostering pathogens. Have a professional investigate the area to prevent further expenses down the road.

Water after Fire Damage

It’s bad enough for a home or business to sustain fire damage, but it’s worse to be left with water damage after the fire. In the steps of killing an indoor fire, your home or business can be left with water damage. Such a surplus of severe damage can leave your area ruined. Paul Davis has the training to remove any fire or water damage remaining.
