Water Damage Cleanup In Minneapolis

  • Snow can wreak havoc on your roof. Snow is compact frozen water, which means it can become very heavy. If too much snow builds up on your roof, the weight can cause it to collapse resulting in not only water damage but also structural damage. A great way to help relieve the stress on your roof is to invest in a roof rake. Roof rakes can help you shovel and remove snow from your roof.

  • Excess snow on your roof can also mean trouble for your gutters. Gutters are meant to collect and channel water off of and away from your roof and home. As snow melts, it can result in flooding water and overloading your gutters. This can allow water to seep, run, and flow into the roof, down the side of your home, and around the foundation which often results in water damage. Make sure your gutters are cleaned out from any buildup, leaves, dirt, or debris before the snow comes so they are clean and clear.

  • Before all that snow melts away, it can freeze on your roof and in your gutters, creating the all-dreaded ice dam. Ice dams form a barrier on your roof and gutters, meaning that nothing can drain the way it is supposed to. When melting ice on your roof has nowhere to go, it ends up finding its way inside where it causes water damage. Roof raking can also help remove snow before it freezes and help reduce the risk of ice dams forming.

  • Door and window frames can become susceptible areas for water damage from winter snow. If seals and weather strips around your doors and windows are cracked, broken, or missing, melting snow and ice will find their way through. Avoiding water damage cleanup in your home from snow starts with making sure the seals around doors and windows are water-tight. You can purchase weather strips to add around doors, and re-caulk seals around windows before the snow comes to ensure that they are sealed tight.

  • Drifting snow can cause build upright against your home. As that snow melts, it can pool right around the foundation of your home. This leaves your basement at major risk of water damage from seepage of excess water. Properly grading the ground around your foundation to slope away from your home can help direct melting snow and water to run away from your foundation rather than pool up next to it.
