If the liner is the rug-looking fabric, spray an oxyclean/hot water mix on the ceiling, then use a carpet cleaner extractor wand to suck out the liquid.


Right on, I used my Bissell carpet cleaner with the furniture wand and Folex and a splash of the normal Bissell carpet cleaner. My water stain was at the edges of the ceiling mounted a/c duct that leaked water when the a/c mounting screws loosened up in a rain storm. My ceiling was almost black about 4-7 inches all around that a/c unit. Looks almost perfect now. Folex is sold at Home Depot.

I can say that it's a really hard situation, I had a similar problem, I couldn't clean my carpet, so I decided to use Google in order to find something about it, and some people on forums advised me to use cleaning services, I was searching for 2 hours for finding a suitable variant and I used service from one place, they provide rug cleaning. I can say that everything started looking as if it was brand new, and I'm pleased with the result. In my opinion, you need to Google something about these services, maybe it will be an expensive thing to buy but maybe it will fix your issue.

Which problem? the loose a/c unit or the stained ceiling? yes to both, took the grill down from inside the rv and tightened the 4 lag screws holding the roof unit to the rv. That stopped the water leak when driving in the rain. Then as above stated, Folex and carpet cleaner with the carpet cleaner machine.

I had water stains and tried the peroxide/baking soda paste -- It worked great. A little messy, but I'll use it again if needed. There is absolutely no residue or marks to show a stain was ever there and it does not stick out white, whiter than the rest of the ceiling. Make paste, brush in with a soft brush, let dry, I used a vacuum hose to get all extra off ( it will dry hard like cement). When excess removed, use wet white cloth and clean remained off working from outside to in - let dry and stains will be gone. Heavy stains may required a 2nd treatment, but mine didn't.
