Safely Removing Ice Dams – A Guide for Homeowners

Winter in North Jersey can be a beautiful, snowy wonderland. However, with the beauty comes the risk of ice dams forming on your roof. Ice dams occur when snow melts on your roof and then refreezes at the eaves, preventing proper drainage. This can lead to water damage in your home, costing thousands of dollars in repairs. Removing ice dams is a dangerous task that should only be done by professionals. In this post, we will go over why it’s important to hire a professional ice dam removal contractor and how Softwash Ranger can help remove ice dams safely.

Why Hire a Professional Ice Dam Removal Contractor?

As mentioned earlier, ice dams should only be removed by professionals. Climbing on a ladder and attempting to remove the ice yourself can lead to serious injury or even death. Professionals have the proper safety equipment and training to remove the ice dams safely. In addition, professionals use specialized equipment to remove the ice without causing damage to your roof or gutter systems. Removing ice dams improperly can lead to costly repairs in the future, so it’s important to leave it to the professionals.

Why Choose Softwash Ranger for Ice Dam Removal?

At Softwash Ranger, we specialize in removing ice dams safely and efficiently. We use a steamer to melt the ice, which is the only safe method that will not damage your roof. Our team of trained professionals will assess your situation and come up with a plan that will remove the ice dams without causing damage. We also use proper safety equipment and have the necessary insurance to protect both our team and your property. We are the only North Jersey ice dam removal company that uses a steamer, making us the safest and most reliable choice for your ice dam removal needs.

The Benefits of Safe Ice Dam Removal

Investing in safe ice dam removal can save you thousands of dollars in repairs down the line. When ice dams are left untreated, water can seep into your home causing damage to your walls, ceilings, insulation, and electrical systems. This can lead to costly repairs and even mold growth. Removing the ice dams safely can also prevent injuries from falls or accidents while attempting to remove the ice yourself. Hiring a professional allows you to relax and let the experts handle the dangerous task for you.

Removing Ice Dams Is Not A DIY Project.
