Storm Damage Rochester Homeowners Rely on SERVPRO for Flood Cleanup and Restoration Ice Dams and Storm Damage in Rochester? Hurry Up and Call SERVPRO

Ice Dams Cause Flood Damage in Rochester

When the winter months are at their coldest, we tend to worry about the most immediate needs. Shoveling the driveway, making sure our heat works properly and watching our steps to avoid any icy patches. However, we may not be aware of the flood damage that may be brewing right over our heads. When the ice on the roof melts and freezes again, it creates what is called “ice dams,” which left unattended can cause water to flood your attic and leak along your walls, all of which could lead to expensive repairs.

Flood damage to your home in Rochester, as caused by ice dams, can be partially prevented by keeping your gutters clean and avoiding any exhausts from exiting into the attic. Insulation also plays a key role in maintaining proper temperatures, so ice dams are not created. So it is essential to be vigilant of that too. Regardless, sometimes even the best homeowners are not able to avoid the flood that can happen as a result of ice dams and they may be in need of professional help. This assistance is where SERVPRO becomes your greatest ally in restoring your home back to the way it was.

Being a homeowner, you may be tempted to try your hand at the drying process, but it is best to call in a team of experts such as ours. Aside from drying your attic and walls, our SERVPRO team can inspect the structure of your house and determine whether additional repairs are needed. Our specially trained technicians are also able to determine the equipment best suited to navigate the limited space in your attic while achieving the desired results. Our team can work on salvaging insulation if possible, and disposing of those materials that may pose a health hazard for you and your family.

One of the benefits of reaching out to a team of experts is the number of techniques at our disposal. Do not be surprised if our SERVPRO technicians decide to drill small holes into your walls as part of the injectidry process. With this process, we can use these small weep holes to efficiently move the air and heat through the wall cavities and attic space to achieve moisture reduction, which is essential in safeguarding the structural integrity and health of your home.
