Doing research on ice dam removal is great! Now let’s explore why ice dam steaming is safe on all roofing materials. Ice dam steaming is safe because these specially designed steamers turn cold water into soft gentle steam and send it up to the roof with very low pressure. On the roof the user safely melts the ice with the non abrasive steam heat. Once water becomes atomized and turned into steam it is no longer abrasive like water and therefore looses its ability to cut through materials like water. Steam can burn you but it cannot cut your skin like a pressure washer. Get the point? Low pressure steamers rely on heat to remove the ice instead of impact force!
