Leaks through ceilings are not only aesthetically unpleasing, but can be dangerous as well. Bathroom or kitchen fixtures often have a tendency to leak near their location and if you notice that this occurs more than once in a while it may mean there’s an issue with your plumbing system.
This includes leaks from pipes themselves or cracks between walls/ceilings which allow water seepage into the home. Sometimes the leak is completely unpredictable and can last for weeks or months before they are diagnosed.
Sometimes it just drips constantly without a destination in mind, but other times there are signs that point us towards possible causes like water damage around pipes where excess pressure has caused them to burst open.
Unfortunately, in many cases leaks through a ceiling can be from the neighbour’s property above. This means that you need to be aware of what is happening on their side as well as mitigating the damage to your property.
What to do when your ceiling leaks
The first step in fixing a leak in the ceiling is to secure the area and contain any water that may buildup. Move valuable items outside of this area, then get a bucket with tarp to catch the water that is leaking.
If you find a leak in the ceiling, it’s important to control where water comes out of. You can do this by creating a small hole at a strategic location with an awl or screwdriver, which will force the leaking water to exit through one area and not spread across the ceiling.
At this point, you should make a call to water damage repair company like AquaKare and arrange for ceiling leak detection.
