Ice Dams Cause Toxic Mold Inside Homes
Ice dams usually occur after a heavy snowfall and several days of freezing temperatures.
As the snow continues to build up and the warmer weather continues to get closer, one major issue you should be sure to keep an eye on is the potential for ice dams. An ice dam occurs when the snow on your roof melts and refreezes forming a ridge of ice at the edge of the roof which prevents melting snow from draining off the roof.
