Ice Dams in Charlestown MA Many Charlestown residents are already aware of what occurs when their house has Ice Dams: water damage. 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. Water damage from ice dams in Charlestown is usually covered by property insurance.
Water damage in Charlestown basements Some old Charlestown basements have a long history of flooding. Most Charlestown homes have ancient plumbing and drainage systems so sewer backups and leaks are not uncommon. Additionally, water penetration through foundations after heavy rain or snow is possible because of Charlestown’s steep grades and deteriorated masonry. Of course, any home or business could also have plumbing leaks or water heaters or heating systems that leak. Water damage may lead to the growth of mold on surfaces and contents. Active mold growth will give off airborne mold spores which may cause health issues for those in the building. We will send water extraction technicians to address the water damage or flooding in your Charlestown residence, retail space or office building. Our technicians will dry out the basement and remove any water damaged materials. Call PowerBees today if you have a flooded basement in Charlestown.
Water damage within attics in Charlestown Water damage is a common problem in Charlestown attics. Many homes have the old tar roofing or old flashing around chimneys that eventually leak. Additionally, AC units in attics often leak, damaging the insulation and ceilings below. Unless the area is actively dried quickly, that water damage will lead to mold growth. Also, if a dryer vent exhaust is not vented properly out through the roof, the moisture in the ductwork could create a large amount of condensation that then flows into the building. PowerBees will send out water damage technicians to address the attic water damage issues in any home or office in Charlestown.
