Take quick action as soon as you notice a leak
A ceiling leak can lead to a great deal of damage to your home. However, you can reduce that potential damage by taking quick action as soon as you notice that one has occurred.
Put a bucket under the area of the ceiling that is leaking to catch as much water as possible. There is a possibility that you may have to put down more than one.
Your ceiling could very well collapse if too much water accumulates. Poke a small hole in the area of your ceiling that is sagging to let water escape before that collapse occurs.
While you may assume that you have a plumbing problem that led to the leak, the problem could actually be with your roof. Or, you could have a cracked bathroom tile. If the leak took place while the shower was not on, then you more than likely have an issue with your pipes.
Reduce the risk of this happening by having a plumber come to your home and perform a thorough inspection of your pipes.
