1. Scrape any larvae and wash thoroughly with strong bleach or white spirit. The white spirit will evaporate. 

2. The maggots have occupied your ceiling. If you can get your hands on a cheap steaming electrical device it will pay for itself by your use. Failing that the scraper likely will be your solution and use white spirit on the part of the ceiling after.

3. Likely, your infestation problem is under your fridge, washing machine or cooker (or your sofa). Clean those areas thoroughly and spread some anti-insect powder in the areas. No harm to use anti insect spray too.

If you have a void above your ceiling I would check that there isn't a dead, mouse, rat, pigeon etc, because no amount of cleaning will get rid of maggots if you dont find out the source.
