Water Leaking from Ceiling or Walls

We all know by now that water can be damaging to property. And, when it meets the drywall that makes up your interior walls and ceilings, it not only looks unattractive, but it can damage wallboards enough that they fall to pieces. Now that will give any property owner a headache. But don't worry, when it comes to water cleanup, Restoration 1 has you covered. Your ceiling and walls should be a big part of the water damage restoration process. With many types of water damage, moisture soaks into the drywall or even the ceiling.

Even worse, your ceiling and walls are often exposed to dust, pet dander, cooking oils, smoke, and other airborne contaminants. Pair these with water, and you've got a recipe for disaster.

Crawl space encapsulation is another project to consider when you are working to reduce the sources of mold entering your home.

Trying to resolve this yourself, as the homeowner, can lead to another bigger problem. Mold! This is no time for a DIY project. Your local Restoration 1 team is trained and certified in this type of water damage cleanup.

How Ceiling Water Damage Presents Itself

There is a lot that our ceiling covers. We often forget there are beams, pipes, and wires running above us. When we eventually see the signs of ceiling water damage, it's probably a bit late, and a mold and water damage cleanup company may need to be contacted.

Signs That You've Got Damp in Your Ceiling:


If you have light-colored ceilings, you will notice water stains quite easily.


These show evidence of a bigger problem.


If you notice your ceiling starting to sag or bow, it's time to get your damp issues addressed.


Flaking, cracking, or peeling of paint - if it's not old - are essential to note.

A Few Common Causes of Ceiling Water Damage:

Ceiling Leaks

Stains, sagging, or peeling paint are signs that there is excess water on your ceiling drywall. Where would this water come from? Roof damage, missing tiles, or blocked gutters are top culprits; others are surplus water from broken pipes or leaks from an upstairs bathroom.


If your home has too much humidity - especially in the kitchen and bathrooms - your ceilings are more susceptible to mold and mildew stains. If this is the case, install proper ventilation in these rooms.


A crack running the whole length of the ceiling and down a wall is most likely an indication that you have a damaged wall stud or your home has settled improperly. This is a serious issue.
