Ceiling Stains: Upper level pipes may expose signs of leakage through the ceiling. Brown or dark ceiling stains tend to appear if water is leaking through to the lower level.

If you happen to notice one or more signs from the above you most likely have an issue. Our Professional Technicians are available 24/7 to help you get your home or business back in order.
