Fix That Leak Coming Through the Ceiling

Leaky taps are one thing, but when there’s water coming through the ceiling, it’s definitely time to call the professionals. There could be potential dangers to you and your home if you don’t act fast.

A quick call to Clean Drains and the cavalry will soon be on its way to sort everything out for you. Read on to find out why we should be the first port of call for all your plumbing issues.

Staying Safe

The first thing to do is often to cut the water and electricity supply, if it’s safe to do so. This is important because water might make contact with electrical lighting or other electrical appliances.

Using Cleans Drains to sort a leak coming through the ceiling has these advantages:

  • Access to a team of professionals trained to fix the problem
  • A quick diagnosis of the source of the issue
  • Plumbers with the right tools and skillset to fix all jobs connected to the leak
  • Peace of mind that our team will do a great job
  • A sense of security that when the job’s done you and your home will be safe
  • Advice on how to prevent leaks from happening again
  • Tips about redecorating
  • The use of a team that can quickly bring in an electrician if the job needs one

Common Causes of a Leak Coming Through the Ceiling

A leak through the ceiling can come out of the blue no matter how careful you are. You can be sure that, whatever the cause, the team from Clean Drains will have seen it all before.

They have years of experience behind them which means they’ll be able to quickly troubleshoot the problem. These are some of the usual reasons you’ll get a leak coming through the ceiling:

  • A burst pipe
  • A malfunctioning washing machine or dishwasher
  • A roof that’s no longer watertight
  • A fault with an air conditioning unit with a condensing system
  • Problems with the sealant around showers or baths

If the water leaking from the ceiling is clear rather than brown and dirty, then it’s a sign that a burst water pipe might be to blame.

Diagnosing the Issues

The team from Clean Drains will be able to identify the cause of the problem. For example, a continuous leak from a bathroom or kitchen is likely to be from a burst pipe that’s carrying water to the source.

A waste line leak is likely to be intermittent. If there’s a blockage in a shower, this can cause water to seep through the floor. Leaks around toilets can also lead to water staining the ceiling below.

Troubleshooting a plumbing issue is an investigative job best left to those with experience. Our team will often use a process of elimination, and in many instances will be able to source the leak without opening walls or ceilings.

From booking online to the completion of the job was seamless. Ben arrived super quick and was the utmost professional and really new his stuff. He took the time to explain what the problem was and what he was going to do.

Very happy customer! I can't thank Ben, Fouad & Bradley enough for fixing an electrical fault (and dodgy wiring from times gone by) to make my home safer (as well as installing some additional points, tidying up some others and installing new interconnected smoke alarms).

Always use this Service as they are always reliable, give a full explanation of work needed, and do a great job. Highly recommended. Many thanks to Ben who did the work.

Great experience, they actually turned up when they said they would. The guy took the time to look for leaks other than the obvious one, and found them. Saving us a return visit. Pricing is fair. Would definitely recommend.
