What To Do If Water Is Leaking From Ceiling?

If you find that you have a leaking ceiling, you want to get it addressed as soon as possible. Leaking roofs can cause structural damage to your home and can cause mold buildup.

There are some steps that you can do as soon as you see the leak from your ceiling.

Containing the Leak

Once you see the leak, you should do all that you can to contain the water coming out. Your furniture and your floor can become damaged quickly.

Once you see the leak, lay down plastic or towels and then get out big buckets to contain a leak. You will want to make sure that you move your furniture away from the area where it is leaking.

Release Any Water

If you see there is water leaking from your ceiling, chances are that there is water pooling. Pooling water will put a good amount of pressure on your ceiling and lead to collapse. Carefully place down towels and a large bucket.

Then you want to use a drill and drill a small hole in the center of the area where the ceiling is swollen.

The water should flow into the bucket. Ensure that you do not do this over any electrical wires or your furniture.

It is a good idea to wear safety goggles and gloves as the trapped water may be full of bacteria and debris.

Finding the Source

Another important thing that you will want to do is try to find the leak source. If you have access to your attic area, go up there and see where the water is coming from.

In some cases, where the water is will not necessarily be where the roof is damaged. Water could have flown from other areas of your roof.

If you do not have any visible damage to your roof, the leak may be an issue with your vents or flashing.

Hiring A Professional Roofing Company

The best thing you can do when it comes to having a leaking ceiling is to call a professional company out to inspect your roof. They will be able to quickly figure out where the leak is and get it repaired for you.
