The recent winter storms have triggered a lot of havoc throughout the United States, with areas that generally do not receive ice and snow having large amounts. With the recent winter weather, we are seeing a lot of damages to properties from snow and ice dams. While your first thought is probably water damages, that is not the only type of damages that can occur from snow and ice dams. Below, we will discuss some damages to your property that directly result from ice dams and snow.
Ice and snow can become very heavy. This is especially the case if you do not have the ice or snow removed from your roof regularly during the winter months. The stress of the ice and snow can cause your roof to fail. From broken shingles to actual damages to the roof’s structure, damages can be quite severe.
Snow and ice dams are known for causing water damages. Water damages are major concerns from broken or frozen pipes to water leaking into your roof and walls. If you have water damages, they can result in even larger disasters. From rot to mold, water damages can wreak havoc on your property and your pocketbook!
Mold growth is the direct consequence of water damages that were not appropriately handled. Mold can spread quickly and cause major damages to walls, ceilings, and other areas of your property.
If your home has been the victim of snow and ice damages, it is important to call a professional disaster cleanup company for all your cleanup and restoration needs. Water damage and mold restoration and remediation can be completed on your property, returning it to its original shape!
