Do you have Water Stains on your Ceiling?

1/10/2020 (Permalink)

More people than not have water damage stains on their ceilings. This is not a good sign. Most often it is a very bad sign. 

Before we get to the "how to fix it part"..let's start with how to prevent it. What are some Common Causes of this?

  1. Clogged gutters.
    • Full or clogged gutters are the likely culprit if you’ve experienced heavy or persistent rain.
  2. Leaky pipes.
    • They could run from a bathroom, air conditioner, refrigerator, or dishwasher if one is located in the room above the stained ceiling. 
  3. Caulking issue.
    • If the caulking that surrounds your bathtub or shower deteriorates, water can leak down into the ceiling below. 

Do you know what a water stain on the ceiling means?

  • The mark or spot is a visible mark of water damage in your home
  • It can't be fixed with a coat of paint..don't even try it.
  • Unfortunately trying to cover it up could cause mold issues in the future.
  • Water stains should instead be repaired immediately in order to avoid further damage to ceilings. So STOP and call a professional like SERVPRO of West Evansville before you try to become a youtube expert.
