Is There Water Damage To Your Ceiling?
Water spots on the ceiling don’t automatically mean the roof is leaking. Often the stain is not from a roof failure but from drips in the attic from condensation on pipes. Many water lines converge up there: upstairs hot water heaters, plumbing, A/C lines. Tiny cracks allow slow leaks up in the attic crawl space which lead to stains on the ceiling. Be aware of:
- Musty odors
- Discolored growths
- Stains, streaks, shadows
- Peeling ceiling or wall surfaces
Even if your ceiling does not look too bad now, it doesn’t take much water to create a disaster. A red flag that your ceiling is at risk of failure are depressions around the fasteners; you will see tiny dimples forming on the ceiling because the drywall encompassing the nails or screws droops, leaving an inverted crater. So, if you feel you might have water or mold damage to your ceilings, give SERVPRO OF DES MOINES NW a call!
