2/12/2019 (Permalink)

Stains on the ceiling can indicate water damage.

Why SERVPRO is the Best Choice for Water Damage Restoration in Your Los Angeles Home

If you believe you see signs of water damage to the ceiling of your Los Angeles home, the source of the water needs determining before restoration begins. A major mistake that people make is attempting to patch it themselves without solving the root of the problem first. A professional remediation company needs to be called in to check the situation out. 

As a property owner, it is essential that you can identify water damage in your Los Angeles home since signs can sometimes be neglected or unnoticed. Don't underestimate the water's ability to create significant damage to your structure. SERVPRO Brand has the professionally trained staff and tools you need to fix an issue like this in your home, which is why SERVPRO Franchise professionals are the right choice to restore your home. 

One of the most visible signs of a ceiling which is water damaged are water stains. These usually look brownish or rusty in color and can suggest a previous or ongoing leak. It is always best, either way, it is always the best decision to have SERVPRO Franchise professionals look and help you find the source while repairing any damage. We have moisture meters which can find any hidden moisture that is creating the staining to resolve the issue, and the damage stopped. 

Another indication of a water damaged ceiling is bubbling or swelling. If your ceiling appears to be bulging out, it means there is an accumulation of moisture in the drywall and wood. It can at times be dangerous because as the water continues to collect, it can cause the ceiling to collapse. We can alleviate the situation before it becomes dangerous. 

Sometimes, a water damaged ceiling looks like it is sweating, with the discoloration looking a bit darker than the paint and showing up at the start of a water leak. The excess humidity or moisture creeps into walls and the ceiling and turns in bubbling or stains. It is a clear sign you need to act before the problem worsens immediately. 

Mold is another clear indicator there is water damage, and it needs to be handled right away since mold can cause health effects. Mold can start growing in as little as 48 hours and continually spreads until it cleaning occurs. SERVPRO Franchise professionals are equipped to handle mold as well if it has begun to grow in your home due to a water leak. 

SERVPRO of Silver Lake/Echo Park is trained and experienced to handle ceiling water damage in your home in Silver Lake, Chinatown, or Elysian Park. As soon as you realize there is an issue, reach out to us by dialing (323) 255-1000, so we can stop the leak and restore your home.
