Water In the Attic? Call SERVPRO! 

We see it all the time. One morning, you wake up and there’s water leaking from your ceiling, and you have no clue what happened. Come to find out, your attic is leaking water and you have no idea how. With winter weather approaching, our trained professionals see this problem all too often. Here are some tips we gathered to help protect your attic and home from water damage this winter.  

Check your attic insulation! 

Ensuring your attic is properly insulated is one of the most important things you can do to protect your home from not only the cold and humidity, but also to prevent mold, dust, dirt, and mildew from spreading in your home. Inspecting your insulation for any cracks or seams where water can enter is a great preventative measure you can take before the severe winter weather hits.  

Stay wary of ice dams forming over your gutters! 

Ice dams can be a major problem during the winter. They form when heated air melts roof snow downward into water dammed behind still-frozen ice. When the trapped water cannot flow into the gutter, it can flow back into the roof’s shingles and into the structure's interior. Our professionals can help mitigate water damage caused by ice dams and get your home back to preloss condition.  

Our SERVPRO professionals understand just how disruptive water in your home can be to you, your family and everyday life. That’s why we offer 24-hour emergency response by trained, uniformed professionals. SERVPRO of Edgewater/Deale-Churchton/Lothian has top-of-the-line equipment and time-tested cleanup and restoration techniques to make your house feel like a home again.
