Water Stains on the Ceiling

Unsightly stains on your ceiling are more than unpleasant to look at, they can actually indicate that there is a larger problem at hand. Water stains on a ceiling usually mean that there is a roof or plumbing leak that needs to be addressed. So, what should you do if you see this problem in your home? American Restoration Water & Fire LLC, is here to walk you through the troubleshooting process.

Could it be a leaky pipe? Inspect all angles of the stain, check the roof or the floor above depending on where the stain is. Look for pipes near the stain, and then inspect for signs of corrosion. Contact your plumber immediately to get the pipe fixed, and then contact American Restoration to repair any water damage to your home. If left for too long, water damage can lead to mold growth.

In some cases, there can be damage to your roof that is allowing outside rain water into your home. Check your roof for signs of damage like missing or damaged shingles. If you have a flat roof, inspect the parapet and canales for cracks that might allow water to leak into your home. Our blogs Tips for Home Floods Before the Flood and DIY Roof Maintenance provide tips on how to take care of your roof before and after a water damage situation.

Getting to the source as soon as possible is crucial if you are to avoid water damage or mold. Winter can be especially harsh on your roof, so if you notice ceiling stains, don’t hesitate to contact your plumber, and then American Restoration. We are available 24 hours a day, even during the holidays.
