SERVPRO Can Conduct Water Damage Repairs in Marlborough During All Seasons
In the wintertime, cold temperatures and snowstorms can create issues that could cause water to leak into the interior of your home. For example, an ice dam could cause your roof to leak, or frozen pipes could break and cause moisture to pour into your house. However, if you can notice either of the incidents occurring right away, you might be able to minimize the extent of the damage caused.
Whenever your home in Marlborough suffers from frozen pipes and ice damming, the longer the issues go untreated, the worse the damage can become. When the weather is cold or a snowstorm has just struck, it is a good idea to check your roof and inspect your water lines for freezing. If you notice that water isn't draining off of your roof, or you find some section of water pipes that seem cold, there are some things you can do to prevent severe damage.
One way you can tell if an ice dam has formed on your roof is if you see a lot of icicles forming in one spot of your roof. If you notice a significant amount of ice forming around your gutters, it is a wise idea to put a fan in your attic and blow cold air towards the leak. The air will freeze the water in its place so that the leaking stops.
If you find a section of your pipes that seem frozen, you can take a hairdryer to heat the cooler areas. If the frozen section is large, you can set up a space heater to heat the areas around the frozen pipes.
