Why SERVPRO? Experience With Water, Ice, & Other Things That Aren't Nice

2/17/2021 (Permalink)

A water loss in your Homewood residence can trace to many causes, including the natural forces that create picturesque icicles on your snow-covered roofline. Water intrusion into your attic or upper levels during the winter months is common if your property is prone to ice dams. Our highly-trained and experienced crews know what to look for when water seeps down into your home, why we can not only respond to the loss but also limit recurrence.

Ice Dams Lead to Interior Water Emergencies

The beauty of a winter snowfall can hide significant water damage in your Homewood dwelling. If the gutters on your roofline are clogged with autumn’s leaves and twigs, water can collect. A freeze and thaw cycle begins, especially if warm interior air leaks out because of inadequate insulation or failed and missing joint sealing. Snow and ice liquefy, seeping under shingles, flashings, and along the seams between the interior space and the growing dams. Because the damage starts small and is often in an inaccessible area, you might not notice it until water saturates drywall and insulation and starts its journey to other spaces. Our familiarity with water movement within a structure is why we can resolve all aspects of the damage.

Water can flow far from a roof ice dam, which is why SERVPRO of Matteson-Homewood uses cutting edge moisture detection tools when scoping your water damage project. Call us at (708) 747-9925 when water losses turn up in unexpected places during the cold of winter.
