The Ceiling Blues

Torrential downpour got you down? It's been a crazy two days in South Florida with record rainfall. Roads were flooded, cars submerged, and even Sawgrass Mills Mall closed. Eventually, standing water dissipates, but what about the water in your home? Not all water leaks are seen immediately. Water can enter your home in a variety of ways. For example, your roof is one of the most common ways water enters your home. Though water may not reach to the ceiling, the moisture stays in your walls and attic. Here are some tips on what to look for.

What are common sources of Water Stains?

  • Leaky pipes
  • Old caulking near the bathtub or shower pan
  • Roof leaks from heavy rain

The water stain comes last. If you notice water stains near the ceiling or drywall, be sure the moisture problem is fixed prior to removing drywall or plaster. Don't ignore your water stain, the problem will only grow to further property damage or mold issues. If you are unsure how to detect water leaks in your home, you can contact the service professionals at All Dry USA for immediate assistance.
