Finding water coming out of your ceiling is not an experience anyone wants to have! We sympathize with your predicament. Rest assured, in this 5-minute read, you’ll get a solid answer on who you should call first — and second, and third! That’s right, you’ll almost certainly need to make more than one call, because you’ll need a few different services. Read on to get all the essential info on who to call for water damage in your ceiling.
The First Person to Call
The very first person you should call when there’s water coming out of your ceiling is a plumber! Water coming through the ceiling is usually caused by a burst pipe inside the wall, or an overflowing toilet, sink, or bathtub above. Find a reputable plumber you can trust, and call them immediately! (See how to find a good plumber below.)
The Second Person to Call
Unfortunately, you can’t just make one call and have done with it. You also need to call your insurance company, to find out if they will cover the damage. There are some instances when your policy may not cover your water damage.
The Third Person to Call
You may not realize it in the moment of crisis, but neither the plumber nor your insurance company can FIX the damage that is now done to your ceiling! So the third call you need to make is to a reputable water damage restoration company. Their specialty is fixing and disappearing the damage like it was never there. Your insurance company may refer you to one they trust, or you may need to find one on your own. (See below for how to do that.)
