Colder than normal temps could lead to ice dams and other major roof damages. Ice dams can cause devastating water and structural damages to your roof and home. Luckily, Disaster Cleanup Services has all the tools and equipment necessary to clean up and restore any damages done by ice dams and heavy snow.

What are Ice Dams?

Ice dams occur when the snow melts and refreezes. When this happens, the water has no way to escape and continues to grow into a giant ice dam. With nowhere for the water to go, it can damage your roof and begin to leak into your attic and walls. Ice dams should be removed as soon as possible because the longer you wait, the worse the ice dam and damages will get.

What Should I Do?

If you have an ice dam or heavy snow on your roof, call a professional to remove it. Removing ice dams can be dangerous as the ice is large and heavy. If you are already experiencing leaks inside your home, it is crucial to have the ice dam, or heavy snow removed quickly. Water damages from roof leaks can cause major structural damages and mold. A damaged roof can be devastating in colder weather, as the interior of your home will lose heat and can cause pipes to freeze.

If you have a leak in your roof, call a professional disaster cleanup company. Water damages can happen quickly as water can spread to other areas of your home. The longer water sits, the worse the damages will be. Water damage restoration works best when done immediately. If you are unsure if your roof is leaking, give us a call. Our team has infrared cameras to find water leaks that are occurring in attics, between walls, and under floors.
