Avoid Home Damage
A skylight leaking in your home can be even worse than a commercial leak. For one thing, you’re more likely to have carpet. Wet carpet is bad news, especially if the water dripping onto it is bringing bacteria with it from the outdoors. If there’s mold in the crevices of your skylight, water leaking through it can bring in mold and allow it to soak into your carpet and grow. Replacing carpet can be incredibly expensive.
Furniture is a whole other problem. If your skylight begins leaking in the evening, have us come out right away. If you wait until the next morning, the leak could get worse while you sleep. Moldy water soaking into your couch cushions or pooling on your hardwood floors can lead to expensive repairs. While a shop may be covered by insurance, it’s unlikely that the average homeowner has insurance on their furniture. Buying a new couch due to water damage or mold is no one’s idea of a good time.

- As soon as you notice the leak, you should make sure the floor is cleared beneath it. If it’s over a flat surface, like a table, that’s fine too.
- Find a bucket to place beneath the leak. If you don’t have a bucket on-hand, you can also use a mixing bowl, regular bowl, or even a cup. Just remember, the smaller the vessel, the more frequently you’ll need to check if it needs to be emptied.
