Flooding is a common occurrence in every neighborhood of Massachusetts, including Dorchester ... basement flooding, a ruptured water pipe in an upper level bathroom and other forms of water intrusion can cause serious water damage. The water level in Dorchester, along with its proximity to the Neponset River and Dorchester Bay, puts the neighborhood at a higher risk for water damage.
Precipitation in Dorchester often results in flooded basements. Since it was settled in 1630, Boston is one of the oldest cities in the United States (and Dorchester is one of the oldest neighborhoods). The ancient foundations and inadequate drainage systems of Dorchester cannot handle heavy precipitation. Instead, these basements become flooded, leading water damage in the businesses and homes throughout the area.

Ice Dams in Dorchester, MA Dorchester is no stranger to water damage caused by ice dams. During the winter, the heat in a home will gather in the attic and elevate the temperature on the roof, which makes the snow that is on the roof to melt. That water will then flow down into the eaves and turn to ice. There, the ice will compound and form a dam. As those ice dams in Dorchester continue to get larger, the water will make its way up under the roof shingles and then down into the ceilings, attics and walls. After this happens, the damp environments created by the water will allow for and accelerate mold formation. As that mold forms, it will decrease your indoor air quality. Water damage from ice dams in Dorchester is often a covered property insurance event.
Water damage in Dorchester, MA basements Water damage in Dorchester basements is fairly common. With Dorchester lying in a high water table and being adjacent to the Neponset River and Dorchester Bay, water penetration (including sewer water penetration) through foundations after heavy precipitation is common. Also, water heaters can rupture and pipes can burst, causing water to intrude into and, then, damage your basement. The water damage caused by these events often leads to the colonization of mold on contents and surfaces within the building. That mold can then cause the germination of airborne mold spores which, when inhaled, cause health issues. When these events occur, or when your basement is flooded, PowerBees will send water damage technicians to address the water damage or flooding in your Dorchester office building or residence. Our professionals will dry out the basement and remove any water damaged materials as swiftly as they can. Call PowerBees today if you have water damage in Dorchester.
Water damage within attics in Dorchester, MA Water often intrudes into the attics of Dorchester. After the water makes its way into the home, it can easily damage the attic. Roof leaks are not uncommon on the old homes in Dorchester. Additionally, air handlers in Dorchester attics can leak, damaging the insulation and ceilings below. Water damage, if left unaddressed, leads to the formation of mold. For example: when dryer vent exhausts are not exhausted properly, any moisture that ends up in the attic can collect on the plywood sheathing. Those plywood surfaces in the attic then become the perfect environment on which mold can grow. To address the water damage, PowerBees will send out water damage experts to your office or home in Dorchester.
