Ceiling Repair & Restoration
Finding the source of the water loss is key to taking care of the problem. If the source of the leak is in the home, we fix that first. If the water loss comes from a roof leak, our team can repair or tarp, minor damage. Significant roof repairs will need to be handled right away by a qualified roofer. Contact your insurance company immediately if this is the case. If light fixtures or other electrical devices were exposed to the moisture, turn off the electricity before doing anything else. Next, we move onto repairing your ceiling. This includes:
• Moisture testing
• Water removal – portable pumps are often used
• Drying with air movers and dehumidifiers
• Clean and sanitize
• Replacing tiles or panels as needed
• Repainting if needed
If you have ceiling tiles, it can be cheaper to replace the tiles rather than restore them. Removing water stains from certain types of ceiling material is not always possible.
