Few things in your house can make you groan. Seeing water stains on your ceiling in your Mississauga home is one of them. So many questions need to be answered as soon as you notice any sort of staining. How long has it been there? How bad is it? And where is it coming from?
Sometimes The Cause is Very Simple
A new dishwasher was installed, it started to leak and directly below it there is water stains on the ceiling. Usually, with minimal amount of damage to the ceiling, John the Plumber Mississauga can come in repair what needs to get repaired. A general contracting company can come in and repair the ceiling, repaint and the job is done. But sometimes it’s not so simple. For instance, your water leak may be coming from your 4 piece bathroom upstairs. Trying to source out exactly where the leak is can be very very difficult.
Quite often, a plumber will have to cut multiple holes inside the ceiling, and occasionally inside the wall. This is to determine exactly where the leak was coming from. Once it has been diagnosed and repaired you are unfortunately left with the bill from the plumber. Then having to pay a contracting company to come and do the extra repairs that need to get done so that your house doesn’t look like it’s got holes all over the place.
You should Never Ever Leave Water Stains and Ignore Them
Water stains that continue to get wet will of course start to grow mold, become a health hazard and can be much more difficult to take care of. Any water damage needs to be dried completely so it does not stay in the organic matter in the ceiling of your walls. Insurance companies may request that you get industrial fans to dry out the area as well as can be. This can be a bit of a hindrance in your home, but the alternative is significantly worse, trust us at John the Plumber Mississauga on this!)
Many appliance companies actually recommend that you do not operate their appliances when there is not somebody at home. A dishwasher or a washing machine can leak a lot of water in a very short amount of time, and it can be quite alarming to be down below and see water dripping from your ceiling coming out of your light fixtures or any hole that you may have in the wall.
