Question Repair water stains in ceiling.

We had a leak in the bathroom of our BT 5230. Had the roof repaired but now there is an awful stain in the ceiling. Has anyone pained the ceiling? What have other people done to fix this problem.

Default Decided to do an upgrade.

Pretty bad stain, removed all the covers and taped the room. Went with an off white so it would match the yellowed covers.

Default Final touches

The ceiling looks much better, pained walls a light grey,(tinted primer paint so it would adhere to the walls), subway tile behind the sink and some new towel racks, soap and toothbrush holder in brushed nickel. Much better.

Looks great....... We had similar stains on our ceiling from years of leakage (previous owner). I mixed up some warm water and a splash of 409 and dish soap in a spray bottle. I then sprayed the solution on the ceiling and used a utensil to gently massage the moistened stain. Then, I used a wet/dry shop vac and sucked the stain right out. Gone!....

I'll have to try that on some of the stains we developed in the main cabin after hurricane Florance.

I have had very good results on a variety of ceiling stains by using a fine mist of straight Clorox. Just dampen and let dry thoroughly. Sometimes it takes multiple applications, but will result in the stain eventually disappearing with no damage to the ceiling material.
