Why SERVPRO? We know how to deal with Ice Dams!

2/17/2021 (Permalink)

Ice dams are a natural occurrence when the weather is crazy in your area. If snow comes down, then the weather heats up, then it gets chilly again, you may have to deal with water damage caused by ice dams. 

The ice dam moisture spreads eventually toward the lower levels of your home. Sometimes it runs through wall cavities, making itself known only when water damage along baseboards migrates into the hardwood flooring or carpeting several stories below the roof.

Damage to structural components far from a leak does not surprise our technicians, why SERVPRO commits to a thorough inspection and evaluation of all the spaces of your home. Once we determine the extent of the damage, we use state-of-the-art extraction and drying equipment to mitigate and remediate the harm.

We also help pinpoint the water entry location and help arrange for other contractors to properly insulate up to and seal around the roof edge to eliminate future water incursion.

So if an ice dam does affect your home or business, give SERVPRO a call! We are faster to any disaster and are here to help get you back to "Like it never even happened."
