Commercial Ice Dam Removal, Indoor Ice Removal, and Warehouse Defrosting
Commercial ice dam removal jobs can come in even more shapes and sizes than residential ones do. Sometimes the ice forms a giant column on the side of a building. Sometimes the ice dam forms a giant blanket over an entire flat roof. Ice dams are a threat to your business for many reasons. No matter the size or shape of the ice dams on your building – or other ice buildups in or on your building – Ice Dam Guys® can remove them safely and easily.
Our ice dam company offers full-service ice dam removal for your commercial building – be it a small “mom-and-pop” business, a warehouse, a TV station, or a supermarket or department store. We also can clean and defrost commercial cold-storage warehouses, which typically have inventory that requires a fast defrosting job so that all the freezer space can be restocked quickly.
We’ve got the equipment (like giant man-lifts) and the experience (since 1996) to handle whatever ice dam removal job your business may require. We offer same-day and next-day ice dam removal throughout America, and of course throughout the Minneapolis / St. Paul area (our HQ) and central Minnesota.

Our steam will also thaw pipes, drains, indoor ice, vents and vent pipes, culverts, and even electrical conduit
The ice may not be limited to your roof. It may also plague your water supply, drainage, or your ventilation stack. Our steam can make short work of that.
We can also thaw indoor ice, if a spill or roof leak has frozen in an unexpected and dangerous location. Below are a few photos of an emergency job we did at a well-known supermarket, where the roof leaked and filled the unheated HVAC/mechanical room with ice, causing short-circuits. You do not want your heat pumps and condensers sitting in an ice rink, so we were on the scene in about 2 hours to do what we do.
This was yet another project where the adjustability of our steamers shaved many hours off of the bill, which typical ice dam companies’ steamers couldn’t do. Because the facility had floor drains in the mechanical room, we first thawed the drain. Once the drain was clear, we increased the pressure from 200 PSI to 2000 PSI, dropped the heat, and increased the flow of water. That allowed us to slice the ice easily and end the emergency in a timely manner.
We can even clear underground pipes. Another unique job we did recently was for an electrical contractor working at one of our local TV stations (KSTP Channel 5 in Saint Paul). The contractor needed to run underground cables through PVC conduit, but those PVC pipes were frozen solid. Because our steamers can be used for hydro-jetting, we were able to snake through the conduit, turn the temperature down until we were clearing the pipes with very hot water, and vacuum out the moisture, allowing the electricians to run the cable freely.

Reviews from Commercial Ice Dam Removal Customers
“We had an ice dam that was leaking water into our office, and Tony P. was there within 24 hours of calling. Yes, they are expensive. But Tony could not have been more professional, and thorough in the work he did. Plus, he helped me diagnose what the issue was with our roof so I can work with our roofer to fix the problem.” – Mindy Pekin, Chicago (read review on Google Maps)
“I can’t give enough praise to Jay and Jake and the Ice Dam Guys! Here in the Treasure Valley we do get snow. We get the pretty kind of snow where we get a few inches and makes everything a sparkly winter wonderland and then it melts. It’s perfect and never “typically” lasts more than a day or two, at most. This winter was different. We were hit storm after storm. We had an accumulation like no one had ever seen before in out valley. Literally. It broke records. All records. Since the beginning of record taking. Our accumulation of snow was then hit by ice storms then by rain and while not ever melting we were hit by MORE snow. It was unreal. Everyone was experiencing ice damming and most, like me, for the very first time. Most of us had never heard of the term. Roofs were collapsing left and right in neighboring cities. Wal-Mart even closed a couple local stores due to fear of roof collapse. Yes, that’s correct, the store that never closes, CLOSED. Several of them. Until they could clear their roof. With cities all around me all experiencing the same crises, all local contractors were two busy. They were turning me away as they were booked weeks out. They did not want my business nor did they need my business. I didn’t have weeks. I had tenants left and right experiencing major water intrusion inside their building. One in particular was leaking so bad that it was as if someone had turned on a faucet inside their business. When I thought I had no other options I heard that the Ice Dam Guys were traveling to Idaho to help. From my first call to Jay I could tell that we would be in good hands. He answered all questions and concerns and scheduled me for NEXT DAY service! Jay sent (in my opinion) their best hardest working technician, Jake. Jake worked for two + days clearing the ice dams. He was fast, efficient, knowledgeable, and friendly. Thank you both Jay and for Jake for coming to my rescue and clearing massive amounts of snow and ice!” – Caley Eckhart, Commercial Property Manager, Eagle ID (read review on Google Maps)
