Lowell, Massachusetts is an old mill city on a river where flooding and water damage could affect many homes and commercial buildings. Causes could be the extreme weather, high water table and outdated drainage systems around many of Lowell’s older homes which result in flooded basements. There are many other causes of water damage, such as roof leaks, plumbing leaks, ice dams, burst water beds, etc. Mold is a related hazard which could affect water damaged homes and buildings. 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 LOWELL MA Because of several harsh winters, many residents of Lowell are already 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 Lowell is usually covered by homeowners insurance.
WATER DAMAGE IN LOWELL MA BASEMENTS Many homes in Lowell have a history of flooded basements because parts of Lowell have poor drainage and are prone to flooding. 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 Lowell. Additionally, any home or business in Lowell could always suffer plumbing disasters that affect their basements. This water damage likely will lead to the growth of mold on basement surfaces and contents. Black 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 Lowell.

WATER DAMAGE IN LOWELL MA ATTICS Roof leaks can affect many homes in Lowell, MA. Also, Lowell homes with HVAC units in the attic can have condensation leaks, causing water damage to the insulation and ceilings below. Additionally, if a dryer vent or bathroom exhaust is not vented properly out through the roof, the moisture from the dryer or fan could create a large amount of condensation in the ductwork that then leaks into the building. If left, 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 the Lowell, MA area.
