Ice Dam in Bend, Oregon
During winter season there are things homeowners need to do in order to protect their homes from potential damages.
In this picture of the snow storm that happened in February of 2017, shows what happens when you don't clean out your gutters.
Under all that snow is ice. The heat from your home rises causing the ice to melt. When the ice melts you have trapped water. Where does that water go? You guessed it; it seeps into your roof causing water damage in your ceiling and walls.
This kind of damage is costly and if it isn't taken care of in a timely manner you run into more potential damages such as mold growth in as little as 48 hours.
Taking a little time out of your day to clean those gutters can prevent ice dams and save you money.
