The damage ice dams bring
Ice dams can be harmless or cause some serious, secret destruction. The ice that forms at the edge of a roof, blocking water or melted snow from draining, is called an ice dam. When the water doesn't drain, it puts weight on the roof, and because water takes the path of least resistance, it will find an entrance into your home, usually between the shingles. If water enters your home because of an ice dam, it is typically undetectable, allowing mold and mildew to grow behind your walls, in your attic, and on your ceiling. Mold and mildew can cause health effects, so it is imperative to stop the source of loss, dry the moisture, and clean any mold that may have grown.
