Heavy Snow Storms Could Lead To Water Damage In Your Belmont Home

As the winter months approach, Belmont residents prepare for what could be a bitter and snowy portion of the year. Even with precautions in place to protect your home, such as insulating your exposed pipe to prevent freezing and bursting, your property could still be at risk for damages from moisture and dampness.

With heavy bouts of snowfall expected intermittently throughout the winter, your Belmont home could find itself contending with water damages as well. As snow collects in a dense blanket along the roof, it puts a strain on the supports, especially when ice dams form along the edges of the roof to prevent runoff of melting snow when the sun returns to the sky. The added strain to the roof can eventually exploit whatever vulnerabilities exist, allowing water penetration directly or through seeping moisture and dampness.

With moisture affecting your attic space, your home now becomes at risk for mold and microbial growth. Our SERVPRO technicians can help by inspecting suspecting damages internally for the presence of moisture seeping through the roof and into this area of your residence. We have thermal imagery cameras that can detect variations between dry and wet materials to identify penetration points easily.

If moisture gets discovered in any area of your home, our SERVPRO professionals have the advanced equipment to begin drying up the dampness. The longer that saturation occurs in structural components like the roof, the more damage that can occur. We can also spray affected surfaces and other nearby materials with antimicrobial solution to prevent the growth of fungus and mold while drying efforts get underway to eliminate the moisture seeping in from the compromised roof.

While you may go to enormous lengths to prepare your home for the winter months that lie ahead, you cannot account for the circumstances that can lead to damaging your aging roof. For inspections for moisture or mold growth in the attic area of your home or fast response to existing water damages, you can depend on our SERVPRO of The Lakes Region technicians. Give us a call today at (603) 527-2518.
