ServiceMaster by ARTec’s water damage restoration services will come in handy if your gutters fill up with ice.

Before the month of December was even visited up on our calendars, the news media and social media was bombarded with images of New York state communities dealing with six or more feet of snow.

Six feet of snow is difficult to appreciate until you see pictures of several people shoveling snow off a rooftop, and the snow is taller than they are. Then you stop and think “Man, that’s a LOT of snow!”

As impressive as pictures of people shoveling six feet of snow off a rooftop can be, it’s the smaller details that can go unnoticed. For example, you didn’t see any pictures or footage of people digging snow out of house gutters, did you? Sure, preventing impending roof collapse takes precedence, of course, but snow-packed gutters can lead to eventual ice dams, which can lead to water damage!
