If you have water leaking from your ceiling – especially if it’s coming from a light fixture – you need to immediately call Billy the Sunshine Plumber for help.
All was well until you got home from Gasparilla yesterday. That’s when you found the puddle in the middle of your first floor bathroom. Water was dripping from the light fixture.
“Ceiling water leakage is a minor disaster that portends a major disaster that can ruin flooring, walls, appliances, and furniture,” thespruce.com says. “The silver lining is that water leaking through the ceiling light fixture is your early warning system.”
That’s right, you caught the problem before your ceiling collapsed.
Thespruce.com says, “Water that leaks through and around ceiling light fixtures fall into two broad categories: plumbing leaks or natural water leaks from rain.”
Yesterday was clear with no rain, so it’s most likely that your problem comes from a plumbing leak of some sort. Those leaks could come from pipes that have leaks or that have failed, faulty connections between pipes, or ill-fitting shower or sink drain assemblies.
Your best bet is to contain the damage – put down a plastic sheet to keep water off your floor. If you don’t have a plastic sheet, get a bucket or something else to contain the water. DO NOT turn on the light switch – DO shut off the circuit breaker to that room. Shut off the water main if you know where it is.
