Flooding and water damage can happen to any home or commercial building – even in Needham. It may be basement flooding from rain or snowmelt, roof leaks or a ruptured water pipe in a bathroom that causes water damage to the home or building. Unfortunately, several sections of Needham are prone to flooding and water damage because of the topography around the wetlands and Charles River. Outdated drainage systems around many older homes in Needham may also result in flooded basements during heavy rains. PowerBees technicians use heavy-duty equipment to extract or remove water from your home or office. Mold will begin to colonize on surfaces within hours after water damage, so it’s important to start the drying process as soon as possible. PowerBees could help you recover from water damage from leaks or flooding in Needham. PowerBees handles both large losses and small losses in Needham and will work directly with your insurance company.
ICE DAMS IN NEEDHAM Many residents of Needham are familiar with water damage caused by 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 through the roof shingles and then down into the attics, walls and ceilings below. When this happens, mold begins to form and might impact the air quality of the home. Water damage from ice dams in Needham is usually covered by homeowners insurance.
WATER DAMAGE IN NEEDHAM BASEMENTS Needham basements have a history of flooding. Parts of Needham have a high water table also the Charles River can occasionally swell over its banks. Additionally, sewer backups and water penetration through foundations after heavy rain are a common hazard. Of course, any home or business in Needham could also have plumbing leaks in the basement. Water damage may lead to the growth of mold on surfaces and contents. That mold will give off airborne mold spores which may cause health issues for those in the building. Call PowerBees today if you have a flooded basement in Needham. Our technicians will dry out the basement and remove any water damaged materials.
WATER DAMAGE WITHIN ATTICS IN NEEDHAM Roof leaks will eventually affect many homes in Needham. Additionally, HVAC units in attics often leak, causing water damage to the insulation and ceilings below. If left untended, that water damage will lead to the colonization of mold. 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 leaks into the building. PowerBees will be able to address the attic water damage issues in any home or office in Needham.
