How Ice Dams Cause Water Damage in Nampa
Let SERVPRO Handle Ice Damming on Your Nampa Roof
When the weather is at its coldest, heat can cause unexpected problems in your home. Prevention is your best bet, but not every obstacle can be avoided. When heat from inside your home leaks out and causes snow and ice to melt and run down the roof, it may refreeze as an ice dam. Keep an eye out for telltale indicators like icicles on the soffits, particularly if they look dirty. Seeing water and ice behind your gutters can also help you identify a potential issue. If you find signs of ice dam related problems SERVPRO can help you assess and remediate damages.
It can be an issue of too little insulation, or other hidden roof damage letting warmth out. Ice damming can cause many problems for Nampa homeowners. Water pooling behind the dam can force its way inside your home. Regardless of whether the problem is water stains and removal in the attic or seepage in the siding our technicians come prepared to remedy the situation.
Other secondary issues from the water damage can crop up unseen. Mold in the insulation or structural damages from frozen pipes can create the need to remove, replace or even demolish damaged areas. SERVPRO specialists can help quickly mitigate these dangerous conditions and get you back in control of your property. We look deeper and take the time to find hidden pockets of moisture that can cause ongoing damage and odors. Our dedicated staff can handle deodorizing along with all your other needs so that you can get back to feeling cozy right away.
Trying to remove moldy insulation or demolish sheetrock yourself may cause more damage. Never ignore mold; it can cause health effects. SERVPRO can send IICRC certified professionals with specialized equipment to assess and mitigate your ice dam-related issues. We practice ongoing education and keep up to date on advances in technology to safely make it “Like it never even happened.”
