Sewage Backups & Malfunctions

Sewage flooding is not only gross, it’s dangerous. Grey or black water contamination carries pathogens that can result in serious illness. Flooding resulting from sewer blockages can be considered an emergency and should be handled right away. Qualified Paul Davis technicians inspect and remove the damage from the sewage and any standing water damage may have happened. Our tools and specialized training can solve the hazard with safety and speed.

Appliance Leaks & Broken Pipes

If a faucet, bathtub, washing machine or any other appliance leaks, the outcome can range from bothersome to hazardous. Stagnant flooding on the floor can seep into the foundation, collecting in out of reach places. You may cause wood damage and invite a mold infestation. If your water damage results from bathroom or dishwasher malfunction, you additionally risk harboring pathogens. Call an emergency professional inspect the area to prevent more costs down the road.

Firefighting Runoff

It’s terrible enough for a home or business to sustain fire damage, but it’s worse to be left with water damage in the days after the blaze. In the steps of extinguishing a home fire, your home or business can be left with water damage. This one-two punch of home damage can leave your space devastated.
