Look up. Do you see water stains? If so, there could be a bigger problem that you’re not seeing. Ceiling stains are often ignored or forgotten about until mold has had an opportunity to grow and spread. Water stains on your ceiling or on ceiling tiles are often caused by a roof leak, but other problems could be the cause of the staining.
A stain on your ceiling could be a warning that mold is also growing in your attic. Attics experience extreme fluctuations in temperature, especially in summer and winter. Moisture and humidity levels also tend to be much higher in attics, potentially causing staining and mold.
What Causes Water Stains on My Ceiling?
Water stains on your ceiling can be caused by many factors including:
- A leaky roof
- Leaking pipe or drain
- Condensation from your air conditioner
- Excess humidity buildup
- Moisture from a bathroom fan venting into the attic
What Should I do if I See Stains on My Ceiling?
In many cases, homeowners can readily access their attic space, but a full inspection should be left to a professional. Attics are commonly covered with many inches of insulation making finding a leak challenging. In many cases, the source of the leak or moisture will not be in the immediate area of the stain. Water droplets will often travel down the roof line or run along pipes before finding a landing place on the ceiling. An issue with your roof could be the culprit. When you call BioClean Remediation, LLC we will conduct a thorough inspection to identify the source of the moisture before recommending a remediation plan.
