De-Icing Downspouts

De-Icing Downspouts Twin Cities

Although it may not seem like it, thawing downspouts that are attached to your commercial establishment is something that is very important. The reason is because ice in a downspout is going to prevent any melting ice or snow from draining from the roof. This can cause it to drain off in areas it is not meant to drain from, as well as cause water to pool in places it should not pool in. If water pools on the roof, it could cause the roof to leak. If it pools around the foundation of a structure, it can compromise the foundation.

Basically, our Minneapolis & St. Paul drain & sewer cleaning service thawing out your downspouts can save you money in the long-term. Imagine the money saved on roof and foundation repairs. Properly working downspouts can also help prevent dangerous and roof damaging ice dams. The benefits are rather significant.

As for how to know when a downspout is frozen, you can sometimes see ice coming out the bottom of it or you may notice that water is not coming out of the downspout when it should. You may even suspect if it is frozen. Even suspicion can warrant an inspection of your drains to make sure they are all working properly and that nothing is frozen.
