Winter months can be brutal in the midwestern regions of the country. Consequently, frozen pipes and ice damming damage are the most common water issues in Carol Stream. Although every homeowner makes efforts to prevent the freezing of pipes or the formation of ice dams, such events can still occur even with the best preventive measures.

It is crucial to hire experienced restorers like SERVPRO if frozen pipes or ice damming damage occurs at your Carol Stream home. SERVPRO’s IICRC certified team of technicians are equipped with the most advanced tools necessary to restore your property to a preloss condition.

How to prevent ceiling leaks due to ice dams in your Carol Stream home?

You can take steps to prevent ice dams from forming in your Carol Stream home. Some of how SERVPRO techs suggest you can do it include-

  • Increasing ventilation to eaves and ridges
  • Sealing air leaks that might heat the roof from the inside
  • Adding more insulation to the attic crawlspace
  • Seal and insulate ducts and exposed plumbing

That said, it might not be possible to prevent ice dams from forming or from your pipes freezing over in the harshest of winters. If you experience water issues due to such events, it is important to act fast and get SERVPRO restorers involved right away. As the water keeps leaking from your roof or burst pipes, it can cause massive structural damage in no time. SERVPRO restorers can help you get the situation under control before the moisture can cause any secondary damage.
