Why SERVPRO Our Professionals Have The Tools To Handle Your Bucktown Home Restoration When these icicles melt they can cause water damage in the roof and our experts are here to help.

Why SERVPRO is Excellent for Water Damage to Your Bucktown Home

In the winter months in Bucktown, ice dams are just one of several natural occurrences which post a threat to the structure of your home. A buildup of ice from melted snow which has refrozen, an ice dam forms near the edge of your home, usually in the gutters. Then, melted snow cannot drain off your home to the ground, which creates a backup of liquid with nowhere else to go other than into your home.

Ice dams can form quickly on your Bucktown home and cause water damage. It is best to call the professionals at SERVPRO when you find an issue like this so the water inside can be cleaned up and your home can be restored. SERVPRO techs are adequately trained and equipped to handle any water damage to your home and do it promptly to avoid additional damage. Therefore, it is easy to see why SERVPRO is an excellent choice for water damage restoration.

When weather conditions mean there is repeated freezing and thawing your home can be prone to ice dams. When snow settles on your roof, some of it melts and goes down into the gutters. If your attic is poorly insulated, the heated air from inside your home and the lack of insulation melts snow rapidly, and this newly formed liquid goes down the slope of your roof. As the weather gets cold again, this water refreezes, creating a dam that snow which melts cannot get past. You then have that melted snow seeping into your home.

SERVPRO technicians have the tools to dry up the water damage which has come in, and since some might be hidden, we use moisture meters to find it, so nothing is left behind. Hidden water and moisture can easily create mold inside your walls and ceiling, so it is imperative that we find all the moisture and dry it out.

When ice dams have caused melted snow to invade your home in Pilsen, Wicker Park, or Chicago, reach out to SERVPRO of West Loop/Bucktown/Greektown for assistance. We can be reached anytime you need us by dialing (773) 434-9100, so do not hesitate and we can restore your home to the way it was before the water intrusion.
