Ice Damming Causes Severe Mold Growth in Maryland Homes and Businesses

A winter season plagued with record-low temperatures has caused an alarming rise in Maryland property owners' reports of water damage due to a phenomenon known as ice damming. SI Restoration, an industry leader in Water Damage and Mold Removal Restoration

BALTIMORE, Md., March 10, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Heavy snow accumulation paired with consistently low temperatures is catching Maryland residential and commercial property owners off guard this winter, as reported water and flood damage is at an all-time high in the "Old Line State." Water damage to a home or business in and of itself is extremely costly to property owners. However, due to the phenomenon known as ice damming, water damage is also spawning an entirely different hazard for home and business owners: mold growth.

Water damage from ice damming occurs when snow and ice on a roof constantly melt and refreeze due to consistent drops in temperature. When the snow and ice turn to water, the natural slope of a roof filters the water downward toward the gutters. However, due to the constant dip in temperatures, the water freezes at the base of the roof. This causes an "ice dam" to form. From there, the melted snow and ice begins to seep beneath the shingles and into the home or business.

Water damage that is not addressed within 48 hours can begin to cultivate mold. Professional mold remediation is needed to ensure the toxic fungus does not spread to other areas of the home or business via building materials like wood, drywall, and carpeting as well as via the HVAC and ventilation system.

SI Restoration, a trusted leader in water damage restoration as well as residential and commercial mold remediation, has seen an exponential increase in mold infestation due to ice damming this winter season. Mold remediation is a delicate home service that must be carried out by certified professionals who are licensed and insured to complete the work in a safe and efficient manner. Reputable mold removal services follow guidelines outlined by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC).

According to SI Restoration, mold infestation can cause extreme health hazards and reactions in those exposed to the toxic fungus for long periods of time. Symptoms like skin irritation, eye irritation, chronic congestion, lung deficiencies, and dangerously high fevers have been linked to toxic mold exposure. Compounded with illnesses due to record-low temperatures, Maryland residents and property owners must act quickly to thwart the mold issue before the spring and summer months arrive.
