If this is just a yellow water stain on a WHITE ceiling, try a 50/50 mix of bleach and water in a spray bottle. Don't soak it. Do not rub it. If it's a water stain, it will start to fade. It may take several applications. But If you don't notice a difference after the first two applications, you'll have to vacuum the dirt out with a suction vacuum somehow.
Sorry for the delay in getting back to you John.
We tried that, but it didn't work. The celing material also has brown stain along with the water stains. It is as if the wood also became wet, and stained through.
Any other suggestions would be appreciated.
I wrote you back saying we had tried the bleach and water with no luck. Also the vacuuming did not work either.
( But I have had no response to my second request from you.)
I'm sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. I have had a health problem and been going to the Dr several days a week.-- ( So I will try you again )
This staining is as if the wood got wet and stained through the ( carpet like material of the celling) Is there any type of paint that would possibly cover this type of material ?
Or since we can't seem to remove the staining, could it be covered with something else?
Do you have any other possible help or suggestions?
We will be waiting for your ( second help try)
Thanking you John, in advance
Thanks for your fast and extensive answer.
The one correction is that the staining is on the celling of our livingroom slide-out, not the main RV.
This past spring we did lightly pressure wash and recoated the rubber roof also the slide out roof. This fall when, Hericane Ike, came here to east Texas, we brought the 15ft slide out inside. We were hoping that no more water would leak onto celling. While it was in, we recaulked the full length of slide out that went aginst the outside wall so when it was put back out hopefully would not leak any more.
Do you think this will prevent future staining ?
We will try to find some speaker covering material, that idea seemed the less costly, and easier to do.
Thanks again Nick, and we will check tomarrow for any more helpful answers you may have..
