Steaming & Ice Dam Removal

An ice dam is a ridge of ice that forms at the edge of a roof and prevents melting snow from draining off the roof properly. The water that backs up behind the dam can leak into a home and cause damage to walls, ceilings, insulation, and other areas. Ice dams are a common occurrence in Minnesota, and they can do real damage to your roof, and even your home’s interior, if not dealt with.

Moisture entering the home from ice dams can lead to the growth of mold and mildew. For your family’s health, it’s important that mold and mildew growth be prevented. Water damaged portions of your house need to be dried out professionally. The water source must be removed and then immediate action taken to clean the home and maintain its air quality.

Ice dams can be prevented by controlling heat loss from the home, so proper attic insulation is important. Of course, Kiser does insulation jobs as well as ice dam removal!

The Kiser team offers winter snow removal services like: shoveling, ice dam removal, the laying of salt and sand, heat cables, gutter cleaning, snow removal by v-plow and skit loader, as well as repair of broken pipes and leaking water mains.


Removing snow and ice from a roof is a dangerous job that’s best left to contract professionals. Anyone on the roof, or even below, could be injured, and damage to your roof is also a possibility. Instead of risking your safety, give Kiser a call if you find ice dams forming.
