Winter is here!

Winter is here and along with that comes all of the dangers it brings. One of the main worries you may have is the ones that affect your house which is ice damming.What is an ice dam? An ice dam is a ridge of ice that forms at the edge of a roof and prevents melting snow (water) from draining off the roof. The water thatbacks up behind the dam can leak into a home and cause damage to walls, ceilings, insulation and other areas. Water leaking in your home is really never a great situation. Moisture entering the home from ice dams can lead to the growth of mold and mildew. To prevent an ice dam here are some tips and tricks to try. Ventilation under the roof deck, which keeps colder outside air circulating through the attic and prevents it from warming above the freezing point so it can melt snow on the roof.Insulation in the ceiling below the attic, which will prevent warm air from rising up into the attic space to melt snow on the roof.Blocking any heat sources that may be contributing to high temperatures in the attic. If you have a fire, water, mold or asbestos disaster give SERVPRO a call today. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
