Water stains have appeared in my property after heavy rainfall. What do I do?

Clear away any furniture that may be positioned directly in front or underneath the water stains. Perform a visual check of your guttering to ensure there are no blockages. This can easily be caused by leaves and other organic material. Check to make sure that there are no drains outside the property which are overflowing. If the leak stops when it stops raining the issue is likely to reappear during the next heavy rainfall so leak detection may still be required. The property may also require drying as the majority of moisture is not visible and is retained within the buildings structure.
