Flooding and water damage can happen to homes and buildings in any city – even Cambridge. The causes are varied - basement flooding from rain or snowmelt, roof leaks or a ruptured water pipe in a bathroom. The water damage to the home or building from these could be catastrophic. Cambridge has the Charles River so some areas are prone to flooding because of the high water table. Outdated drainage systems around many of Cambridge’s older homes may also result in flooded basements during heavy precipitation. Mold will begin to colonize on surfaces within hours after water damage, so it’s important to start the drying process as soon as possible.

Ice Dams in Cambridge, MA In Cambridge, water damage caused by Ice Dams is all too common. When the heat in a home moves into the attic it heats up the roof and causes the snow on the roof to melt. That water flows down into the eaves, freezes and forms a dam. As the melting and freezing repeat, those ice dams continue to get larger. Eventually the water will make its way through the roof shingles and then down into the attics, walls and ceilings below. When this happens, mold begins to form and might impact your air quality. Cambridge residents should know that water damage from ice dams is usually covered by property insurance.
