Can a leaking ceiling cause mold?

Ceiling Water Leak. A ceiling water leak is often, but not always, caused by a leak in the roof of a house. Once mold begins to grow because of a water leak, you may end up needing to remove and replace insulation, drywall, ceiling tiles and other materials because they are difficult or impossible to clean.

  1. Start by finding the cause of the leak, and repairing the problem to prevent damage in the future.
  2. Purchase a spray can of stain blocking primer or sealer.
