Dealing With Water Stains on Your Drywall

Once you’ve noticed water stains on your drywall, you’ll want to deal with them promptly. Not only are they unsightly, they are also an indication that water is leaking somewhere in your home. TEO Construction, one of the trusted roof and siding contractors in the area, shares handy tips on how to effectively handle this specific issue.

1. Find and fix the cause of these water stains. 

These moisture spots on your drywall don’t appear for no reason. There might be issues with your plumbing or HVAC system, or perhaps you have a roof leak. Leaving them unattended can result in serious water damage to your interiors. What’s more, they can lead to mold and mildew growth, which comes with a number of health risks.

To better determine the source of this problem, turn to a professional like TEO Construction. We specialize in a variety of home improvement services, including interior roof leak repair. Our trained and experienced crew will find the source of this issue and perform the necessary solutions. 

2. Remove the water stains from your drywall. 

First things first–you’ll need to dry those stains. Use fans, heat guns, or hair dryers to speed up the process. Once the wall is dry to the touch, check for signs of fungi. If there are, clear them off using a soft brush and a cleaning solution–either bleach or white vinegar. When your drywall is completely cleared of stains, dry it off again with heating tools.

3. Repaint the drywall. 

Keep your interiors looking good by removing any trace of moisture stains from the wall. If you’re not confident about your repainting skills, just turn to TEO Construction.

We’ll repaint the drywall surface to give it a better finish, restoring your interiors to its lovely, stain-free condition.Look no further than TEO Construction for top-tier solutions to your interior repair and painting needs.
