Ice Dams, Water Damage, & ServiceMaster of Baltimore, a Restoration Company

The winter time presents some very unique challenges for your home, the most glaringly obvious being Ice Dams. An ice dam is a wall of ice that forms at the edge of a roof, preventing water from properly draining. As a result, water can begin to backup under the shingles and eventually infiltrate the home. This can cause water damage to walls, ceilings, insulation and so much more. And if not dealt with in a timely manner, this water damage can even lead to mold and mildew, which can cause a number of health related issues, including persistent coughing, wheezing, difficulties breathing, asthma exacerbation, and other respiratory problems.

Dealing with Ice Dams and the Resulting Water Damage

1. Remove Snow: Step 1 is to remove any excess snow from your roof. This will prevent water from building up and leaking into your home. And if water has already found its way into your home, it will help prevent further water damage.

2. Allow Proper Water Flow: If water has already built up behind an ice dam, chip away a channel through the ice dam to allow water to drain from your roof.

3. Call ServiceMaster of Baltimore: If water has found its way into your home as the result of an ice dam, let the Baltimore water damage restoration professionals at ServiceMaster of Baltimore help. With over 57 years of experience, we know how to get the job done right!
