Flooding and Water Damage Restoration in Hermantown, MN
ATTENTION MEADOWLANDS RESIDENTS: ICE DAM ALERT
With winter almost here, its time to think about ice dam prevention.
When heat escapes through your roof, it melts the snow on top of it. As the snow melts, the water runs down your roof and then when it starts to get colder, the water refreezes and starts to build up until it dams the water, pushing it back up the roof and forcing it to go under the shingles and causing water damage inside your home.
To help stop an ice dam forming on your roof, make sure your attic area is properly insulated. Try to keep the entire roof at the same temperature as the eaves. You may need to increase ventilation or add insulation and seal off any air leaks.

Water damage also affects your belongings, like furniture, clothing, and personal items. We can clean restorable items using a number of specialized cleaning techniques. We also disinfect with antimicrobial treatments and remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.
