Identifying Ceiling Water Damage

Ceiling water damage can be obvious to spot, but sometimes the signs are a little harder to see. If you notice you have some discoloration, that may look damp, that is the most common sign of water damage. If you notice a new odor or mildew smell, that may also be a sign of ceiling water damage. However you come to realize you have ceiling water damage, the first thing to do is figure out where the water is coming from to see if you can mitigate the issue until the professionals can arrive on site to make the repair.

  1. Free Water Damage Inspection – Upon calling First Restoration Services, when you have ceiling water damage, we will look to schedule a free water damage inspection. At your earliest convenience, we will send out one of our water damage specialists to conduct a thorough inspection of the damage to identify the root cause and gather information to begin tailoring a restoration plan to your needs.

  3. Water Extraction – After the cause has been address, our focus will shift to repairing the actual water damage. Whether there is significant amounts of water in your home or business, or the water has all been soaked into the building materials in your ceiling, we will work to extract the water to salvage your ceiling and prevent any further damage from being caused. This step can include water extraction equipment, blowers, and/or dehumidifiers.
  4.
