Attic Water Leak Causes Ceiling Collapse in Ennis, Texas
A water damage resulted after a water heater leak caused water to pool in this Ennis home. The weight of the water caused the ceiling to collapse, causing a water damage in the living room below and affected the flooring, furniture, and some textiles. Our first step was to shut off the water, and then we mitigated the water damaged and ensured no other secondary damage could be caused. We were able to save the customer’s flooring and ensure it dried correctly. Afterwards, the cleanup process began both in the attic and the living room. To protect surrounding electronics, our crews placed protective plastic sheeting around it to prevent any dust to enter the device from the debris and any dust that resulted from us removing all affected portions of the ceiling. The ceiling was prepped for reconstruction. Our crews also cleaned all debris and dust from the flooring and anything that fell onto the furniture.
