damaged bathroom floor

My tenant was not closing shower curtain properly for over 2 months and a lot of water was going onto the floor to the extent that it leaked downstairs and damaged the ceiling and drywall.

ny question is they say they did not cause the damage, how can I get through to them about the damage they have created. I had ceiling replaced and they kept on putting a lot of water on the floor and the ceiling now has to be replaced again. It caused mold and they said it could not be them since they had only been doing it for two months after they moved in.

EVICT them! And use their security deposit to fix the damage.

Buy a magnetic shower curtain---and find new tenants that aren't quite so stupid.
