Hingham, Massachusetts is an old New England seaside town, so flooding and water damage could affect many homes and commercial buildings. Aside from the coastal flooding there are other various causes of water damage, such as roof leaks, basement flooding from rain or snowmelt or a ruptured water pipe in a bathroom of the home or building. Other causes could be related to the outdated drainage systems that many of Hingham older homes have which result in flooded basements.
Following the water damage, Hingham property owners may have to deal with another hazard - mold. Mold will begin to colonize on surfaces within hours after flooding, so it’s important to start the drying process as soon as possible.

ICE DAMS IN HINGHAM MA Because of the recent harsh winters, many residents of Hingham are already familiar with the water damage caused by Ice Dams. However, they may not be aware of the processes that create them. Here’s why you have ice dams: 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 under the roof shingles and then down into the attics, walls and ceilings below. When this happens, if it’s not taken care of quickly, mold begins to form and might impact the air quality of the home. Water damage from ice dams in Hingham is usually covered by homeowners insurance.
WATER DAMAGE IN HINGHAM BASEMENTS Many homes in Hingham have a history of basement flooding because they are very close to the shore and have poor drainage. Heavy rains, snow melt and failing sump pumps can also cause sewer backups or water penetration through basement foundations. This happens more than you might expect in Hingham. Also, any home or business in Hingham could have plumbing leaks that affect their basements. This water damage likely will lead to the growth of mold on basement surfaces and contents. That mold will give off airborne mold spores which may cause health issues for occupants of the home or building. Call PowerBees today if you have a flooded basement in Hingham. Our technicians will dry out the basement and remove any water damaged materials.
WATER DAMAGE IN HINGHAM ATTICS Hingham homes with HVAC units in the attic can have condensation leaks, causing water damage to the insulation and ceilings below. Roof leaks too can affect many homes in Hingham. Also, if a dryer vent exhaust is not vented properly out through the roof, the moisture from the dryer could create a large amount of condensation in the ductwork that then leaks into the building. Unless it’s dried right away, that water damage will lead to the colonization of mold. PowerBees will be able to address the attic water damage issues in your home or office in Hingham, MA.
