Ceiling and wall Water Damage
A leak from an upstairs shower or bathtub can easily cause water damage to the ceiling. If you notice any spots or saggy areas on the ceiling, you should contact us right away. Even a slight discoloration may be a sign of water damage. You should never just paint over an area because hazardous mould and can grow beneath the paints.
Some of the possible causes of ceiling water damage include:
- A leaky roof
- A burst pipe or plumbing leak
- High condensation from an air conditioning line
When you call us our first step will be an inspection of the area to determine the cause of the damage. We may need to remove parts of the ceiling to make the necessary water damage repairs.
If the ceiling is sagging place a pan under the leak to collect the water. Do not use your ceiling fan and remove any hanging pictures from your walls. Hopefully these tips will help you deal with the situation until we arrive to make the water damage repairs.
