The Ice Dam Company only uses steam for ice dam removal (roof ice and gutter ice removal). Any other approach is too risky because roofs are easily damaged in frigid temperatures. Ice dam removal using a hammer or other impact instruments can result in costly damage. Gutter ice removal or roof ice removal using a power washer can also do significant damage.
Removing Ice Dams With Steam
It’s important to note that many companies use high-temperature pressure washers instead of steamers. Most companies that claim to use steamers are either lying or misinformed. The simplest way to tell the difference is that a steamer will never have a triggered gun. The safest technique for removing ice on your roof or gutter ice removal is using a true steamer.
