Sometimes, however, you may not be able to see where the water is coming from. This can happen if there’s a lot of moisture or if it’s towards the inside. An upstairs ceiling that is generally damp can be a result of exhaust venting into the attic rather than to the outside of the home (common in many older homes) 🙌 The excess humidity buildup in the attic can cause attic condensation that seeps through the ceiling, causing moisture and discoloration 🙌 Moisture on a ceiling or wall that’s near the center of the home, far away from exterior walls, could be caused by a plumbing leak or condensation around poorly insulated pipes 😉 [1]
Although you may hire an ice dam repair company to melt the roof ice, it is likely that the leaks will not stop. Your roof’s ice or water from the outside will not be the issue.

It will freeze the leaking water in place, but you’ll still need to deal with the ice dam or it will melt and start leaking again. Professionals are the best people to remove an ice dam. It is possible to cause even more roof damage by hammering on it or using chiseling tools. Special equipment is used by roofing contractors to safely melt ice dams without damaging the roof.
