You just noticed your water damaged ceiling. Your ceiling is discolored and stained with water, while some areas are cracking and peeling off. You are confused about the next steps you need to take to tackle this ugly and stressful situation.
We have made a step by step instruction to help you successfully navigate this situation:
Step 1: Take the situation under control
Remove your furniture and other valuable items from the affected area. Water collected on top of the ceiling can be removed by making a small hole to catch the dripping water in a bucket or tarp.
Step 2: Locate and repair the source of water leak
Roof leaks can be hard to locate depending on how far the water source is from the damage. Using advanced devices such as moisture detectors can help you find the source of the leak and repair it fast.
Step 3: Dry out the affected area thoroughly.
Moisture trapped in drywall can encourage mold growth if not dried properly. Use drying equipment such as industrial fans and dehumidifiers to thoroughly dry the area and ventilate the area for quicker drying. Employing restoration experts will help you reduce the risks of mold formation due to improper drying.
Step 4: Get your ceiling repaired
The safest method of ceiling restoration is replacing the entire ceiling as gypsum walls often crumble and become a health hazard for you and your family. After replacement, repaint the ceiling to get your property back to its original condition.
