Scituate, Massachusetts is a typical, old New England seaside town where flooding and water damage could affect any home or commercial building. Along with the risk of coastal flooding there could be other 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. Still, other causes could be related to the outdated drainage systems that many of Scituate’s older homes have which result in flooded basements.

ICE DAMS IN SCITUATE Because of the recent harsh winters, many residents of Scituate 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 Scituate is usually covered by homeowners insurance.
WATER DAMAGE IN SCITUATE BASEMENTS Many homes in Scituate 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. Also, any home or business in Scituate could have plumbing leaks that affect their basements. This happens more than you might expect in Scituate. In many cases the water damage 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 Scituate. Our technicians will dry out the basement and remove any water damaged materials.
WATER DAMAGE IN SCITUATE 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 Scituate. 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 out right away, that water damage will lead to the colonization of mold. PowerBees would like to address the attic water damage issues in your home or office in Scituate, MA.
