The most common cause of water damage to ceilings and floors in a commercial properties or residential homes are roof leaks. Of course, in multilevel structures, burst or leaking pipes can also play a factor. Another big water problem can be caused by a frozen HVAC air handler. When frozen, the AC stops working, so the owner shuts it down. This results in the thawing process, and the water must go somewhere. That would be on the floor, and water will make its way beneath it, and to the ceiling on the level below. Once you see there’s a problem, you will need to do what you can to mitigate your damages. It should go without saying that if it’s a plumbing leak, the water needs to be turned off. The water should be mopped up and dried with paper towels, towels, anything that will absorb the water. You’ll need to call a water mitigation company to help. Even your insurance company expects that you do your best prevent further damage. RK Restoration Services has a water damage mitigation team that is available throughout the day and night.
