How Do We Clean Up Water Damage From Ice Dams?

From a leaking roof to leaking windows, ice dams spread water damage throughout your home. We take a whole-house approach to tackling ice dam water leaks.

We start by determining the points of water entry from the roof into your home. Our technicians use infrared thermal imaging equipment to track the extent of visible damage and pinpoint hidden moisture.

Once we’ve assessed the scope of damage throughout the house, we get to work cleaning, drying and restoring your home from floor to ceiling.

We use advanced equipment and technologies to clean, dry and restore all affected areas. You can depend on us to:

• Address water damage in the attic including wet insulation. 
• Repair ceiling leaks and replace damaged materials. 
• Clean, disinfect and deodorize all affected surfaces. 
• Tear out and replace badly damaged drywall. 
• Set up heavy-duty axial fans, dehumidifiers and air scrubbers. 
• Finish up with certified mold remediation as needed. 
• Take care of all water-damaged personal belongings. 

WHAT CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING

Wow! So professional and quick from the first phone call to waving goodbye. We had a failed Sump pump and soaked carpet basement. On a busy weekend they arrived with 3 trucks and got to work. Would absolutely recommend them!

We hired service master when our basement got flooded, our insurance agent told us to call them. They did a great job and their communication was always on point. We had a lot of mess in the basement due to all the sewer water, I appreciate their patience and the employees are great.

Last week I had a fire in my home, it was about 4:00 am in the morning, in less than 20 minutes I had several board-up companies outside. Getting my kids and dogs out of the house was my priority, but looked like these companies could care less, they wanted my business. The fire department put out the fire, it was a big fire, my home is not livable at the moment, we lost everything. I picked a board up company and they boarded the windows and doors. They tried to get my business for the rest of the work inside the home but the Fire Department advised me not to sign anything until I spoke with my insurance company. There were so many public adjusters outside fighting for me to sign on, it was overwhelming and a bit scary. I went to my parents house, called my insurance company and they recommended ServiceMaster by Zaba, within 5 minutes I received a call from Brittney at the office, she had a crew arrive onsite in less than 30 minutes. When i showed up to the my house i could not get out of the car, there were a lot of public adjusters waiting for me, they were aggressive and yelling at each other, I had to call the police. I called the Service Master manager which I was able to identify based on their yellow trucks. He walked over to my car and we walked to the house, i could not believe how unprofessional the public adjusters were, they were yelling ignorant comments. I dont know what makes them think anyone would want to do business with them.One of the Public Adjusters walked into my home and bluntly told me, he can rebuild my home to be my dream home and put money in my pocket! I was so mad, I kicked him out. I was impressed at how professional ServiceMaster by Zaba was. They kept their cool throughout the process and were never disrespectful to any of those jerks, they focused on me and my home and asked how my family was. I had smoke, soot and water damage everywhere, of course at this point nothing was salvageable. The adjuster arrived while we were there, we spent about 3 hours going over the work that needed to take place and the expectations. I am very happy and blessed to have been recommended ServiceMaster by Zaba, the process so far has been easy and they are handling all the communication with my insurance company. Neil, Joseph, Britnney and the rest of the team and office staff have been amazing.I hope no one experiences a fire, they are devastating and sometimes fatal, but they are not avoidable. Please make a wise decision, be aware of signing with a public adjuster, speak with your insurance company first. I highly recommend ServiceMaster by Zaba, they are a great company with great staff.

We had an emergency flood situation in our basement. They not only responded immediately but were so professional and calm during such a anxious time for my family. When these unexpected events happen you need not only expertise but prompt results so I definitely would say their name matches what they provide you with. Their water restoration specialists were very informative, took care of our concerns and I’m happy to say got our basement back to be pre flood! I’m thankful and will definitely continue to recommend them to our family and friends.

I highly recommend Service Master By Zaba, they made my old house and I mean old because I hardly recolonized it after they were done with the remodel due to mold and water damage in the house. They provide me a step by step detail plan of how everything was done before and after. I hope to get pictures up soon. Their staff was very careful with everything and all the project Managers were on it all the way. Thank you so much Zab Team!

Can you remove ice dams from my house?

Depending on the location and roof height, we can help. However, a roof with a steep pitch makes the work dangerous. We strongly recommend following the advice of most roofers: Let the dams melt on their own.

Does homeowners insurance cover ice damage? 

Most policies cover water damage resulting from ice dams. Our cleaning and restoration services are also covered by homeowners insurance. In fact, we can assist you with filing your claim. Keep in mind that very few policies cover removing ice dams from the roof.

What are the typical costs for repairing this type of water damage? 

Repair costs vary from one job to the next. It all depends on the extent of damage and the repairs necessary to complete our restoration work. When we inspect your property, you receive a complementary damage assessment that details exactly what needs to be done.

How can I prevent ice dams from forming? 

Use a roof rake to pull down snow and keep it from accumulating along edges. Some homeowners hire an electrician to install heat cables while others use aluminum ice belts along the roofline. There are ice dam removal products available that can speed up the melting process, but prevention is always your smartest strategy.
