Why SERVPRO Ice Dams Turn Into Water Damage These pretty icicles turn into pretty ugly water damage!

During the winter time, there a variety of winter weather conditions that can alter your home or business. One type of damaging winter weather types is an ice dam. 

Ice dams are what happen when melted snow freezes at the bottom of your roof and melted water gets trapped by ice. The water damage occurs on your roof and finds it's way into your attic or other parts of your home. 

There are ways to prevent ice dams in your home, so that you do not have to call SERVPRO for water damage remediation:

  • make ceilings air tight so no warm air enters the attic,
  • replace old lighting with sealed fixtures,
  • boost ceiling/ roof insulation ,
  • insulate or seal attic access doors, and
  • fix cracks in your chimney flashing.

When removing ice and snow there are some tips to keep in mind. The last thing you want to do is damage your roof during the process of protecting your home. Here's what NOT to do:

1. Steer clear of removing ice with salt, chemicals or chippers. 

2. Do NOT install heating cable. 

3. Do NOT add roof vents that can compound the problem. 

Use these tips in your home or business to successfully avoid water or ice damage. We hope you do not have to deal with ice dams or water damage in your home, but sometimes nature causes damage no matter what we do.

Our annual Pumpkin Decorating contest went off without a hitch for the third year in a row. We had an amazing turn out with almost ten pumpkins entered. We had a ton of people participating whether they were liking or sharing or the one who wanted to win. 

The past two years the stakes have been higher, because not only does the winner get a free lunch for their office; they get to give a charity of their choice get $200 donated from SERVPRO. 

This year the winner of the pumpkin decorating contest came from Williamsburg. They chose the Humane Society of Whitley County.
