De-Icing Downspouts

In Minnesota, downspouts can freeze and that can create a problem when you need water to drain off of a roof. If a frozen downspout is allowed to persist, then the water keeps accumulating and that means that it will also freeze, adding to the amount of ice in the downspout. This is not good for the downspout and could ultimately not be good for your roof, as it can cause the ice to back up onto the roof and place weight in places where weight is not needed.

If you are dealing with frozen downspouts, it is imperative to call our Minneapolis drain and sewer cleaning company as soon as possible. We can unthaw your downspouts, thus allowing it to flow the way that it was meant to. This helps you prevent roof issues and the premature destruction of your downspouts. This is also important in preventing the formation of damaging ice dams.

The Safest Downspout Thawing Methods

At Emergency Rooter, we use only the best downspout thawing methods. We only use the best practices because we don’t want to cause any sort of damage to your downspouts. We also do everything we can to keep your property safe. The techniques that we use are safe for our technicians and for anyone who may be close by.

While we work on the thawing of your downspout, we do so in the most meticulous way possible so that we know the downspout is completely thawed and ready for normal operation.

If you are not sure how to tell that a downspout is frozen, look for ice that may be coming out of the bottom. You also know it’s frozen if the ice is melting, but you notice no water coming out of the downspout. Even if you are not entirely sure as to whether or not the downspout is frozen, being suspicious is enough to warrant having your downspouts inspected for ice. If it isn’t ice, water not flowing out of a downspout like it could be indicative of another problem.
