Two businesses traveled from Minnesota to help with snow removal efforts.

Absolutely Clean Window Washing and Steam Ice Dam Removal spent Sunday removing ice from homes.

The companies use steam-powered pressure washers to remove dangerous ice dams from roofs.

Company owner Jesse Lofgren said this approach to remove ice doesn't damage roofs like water-powered pressure washers tend to do.

The businesses are expected to remain in the area for a few weeks.
