Lincoln, Massachusetts is an old town where flooding and water damage could affect many homes and commercial buildings. There are many causes, 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 Other causes could be the extreme weather, high water table and outdated drainage systems that many of Lincoln’s older homes have which result in flooded basements. Mold is another hazard which could affect water damaged homes. 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 LINCOLN Because of the recent harsh winters, many residents of Lincoln are familiar with the water damage caused by Ice Dams, but perhaps not the process that creates them. 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 Lincoln is usually covered by homeowners insurance.
WATER DAMAGE IN LINCOLN BASEMENTS Many homes in Lincoln have a history of flooded basements because parts of Lincoln are very steep and have poor drainage. Heavy rains, snow melt and failing sump pumps can also cause sewer backups and water penetration through basement foundations. This is a common occurrence in Lincoln. Additionally, any home or business in Lincoln could always suffer 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 Lincoln.
