Where Can Homeowners Turn for Frozen Pipes and Ice Damming Repair in Malden?
SERVPRO Traces Water Migration, Planning Repairs After Freezing Pipes Burst or Ice Dams Force Moisture into an Attic or Living Spaces in Malden Homes
Ice damming and frozen pipes require repair in Malden when water escapes and damages building materials and contents. The damage can occur stealthily, with slight cracks in a frozen pipe seeping slowly or the sparkle of an icicle signaling only to experts in water damage remediation like SERVPRO that ceiling leaks are likely to follow.
How Do I Know My Pipes Have Frozen?
An uptick in a water bill or a perplexing puddle of water near a cabinet or collecting in the basement hint that a pipe succumbed to frequent freezing and thawing. Resolve before the dripping becomes flooding when the pipe eventually bursts.
What Are Signs of Ice Dam Damage?
Because warm air often escapes from poorly insulated or sealed attics at the roofline, melting occurs. Icicles are evidence that a rivulet of water freezes and repeatedly thaws, with the source a reservoir of trapped fluids in a clogged gutter or downspout. When the pool refreezes, the expanding ice forms gaps into the attic. During a subsequent thaw, the water flows through the opening to saturate interior building materials.
