Flooding and water damage can happen to any home or commercial building – even in Wellesley. Maybe its 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. Outdated drainage systems around many older homes in Wellesley may also result in flooded basements during heavy rains. Unfortunately, several sections of Wellesley are prone to flooding and water damage because of the topography, the wetlands and the Charles River. Mold is another hazard that is related to water damage. 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 technicians use heavy-duty equipment to extract or remove water from your home or office. PowerBees handles both large losses and small losses in Wellesley and will work directly with your insurance company. PowerBees could help you recover from water damage from leaks or flooding in Wellesley.
ICE DAMS IN WELLESLEY Many residents of Wellesley are familiar with the water damage caused by winter 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, mold begins to form and might impact the air quality of the home. Water damage from ice dams in Wellesley is usually covered by homeowners insurance.
WATER DAMAGE IN WELLESLEY BASEMENTS Wellesley basements have a history of flooding. Parts of Wellesley have a high water table. Also the Charles River can occasionally flow over its banks causing sewer backups and water penetration through foundations after heavy rain. This is surprisingly a common occurrence in Wellesley. Of course, any home or business in Wellesley could also have plumbing leaks affecting 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 Wellesley. Our technicians will dry out the basement and remove any water damaged materials.
WATER DAMAGE WITHIN ATTICS IN WELLESLEY Roof leaks can also affect many homes in Wellesley. Additionally, homes with HVAC units in the attic can have condensation leaks, 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 could create a large amount of condensation in the ductwork that then leaks into the building. PowerBees will be able to address the attic water damage issues in your home or office in Wellesley.
