Flooding and water damage can happen in any town – Winchester included. There could be many causes - basement flooding from rain or snowmelt, roof leaks or a ruptured water pipe in a bathroom. The result is almost always water damage to the home or building. Unfortunately, several sections of Winchester are prone to flooding and water damage because of their high water table and sloping landscape. Overwhelmed sump pumps and drainage systems around many of Winchester’s older homes may also result in flooded basements during heavy rains. PowerBees handles both large losses and small losses in Winchester and will work directly with your insurance company. PowerBees technicians use special 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 Winchester.
ICE DAMS IN WINCHESTER Winchester is no stranger to 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 your air quality. Water damage from ice dams in Winchester is usually covered by property insurance.
WATER DAMAGE IN WINCHESTER BASEMENTS Winchester basements have a lot of flooding. Parts of Winchester have a high water table so sewer backups and water penetration through foundations after heavy rain are not uncommon. Of course, any home or business could also have plumbing leaks. 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 Winchester. We will send water damage technicians to address the water damage or flooding in your Winchester residence, retail space or office building. Our technicians will dry out the basement and remove any water damaged materials.
WATER DAMAGE WITHIN ATTICS IN WINCHESTER Water damage is common in Winchester attics. Roof leaks will eventually affect many homes in Winchester. Additionally, HVAC units in attics often leak, damaging the insulation and ceilings below. If left, that water damage will lead to mold growth. 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 send out water damage technicians to address the attic water damage issues in any home or office in Winchester.
