If you had a leak from an ice dam, there may be hidden danger behind your walls. What seems like a small leak from your roof into your home could be a sign of hidden issues including wet insulation, standing water, and saturated wall board. The only way to know how extensive your damage from ice dams may be is to have your home tested for mold and moisture. If left untreated, you could develop a serious mold infestation.
