How To Handle A Toilet Overflow
Call SERVPRO to handle clean up and the drying from a toilet overflow.
No one likes to deal with a toilet that is malfunctioning and leading to an overflow in their home or business. It can cause a lot of headaches, stress, and not to mention, the mess that it can create causing germs and bacteria to contaminate your home. SERVPRO of Avondale/Goodyear/Southwest Phoenix put together 3 tips for what you should do when you are met with an overflowing toilet.
Turn Off The Water
Locate the shut off valve which is the line coming out of the wall behind the toilet. Turn the valve clockwise to shut off the water.
Clean Up The Water
Inspect the color of the water to determine if it is contaminated. Gray or black water indicates contamination. Be sure to wear rubber gloves and use towels to soak up the water that's collected on the floors.
Locate The Blockage
Use a plunger to try and remove the clog. If that doesn't do the trick, call a sewage company professional to assess the plumbing situation.
Once the blockage has been handled, you can give SERVPRO a call to handle the cleaning from contaminated water and drying up the moisture so your home is back to good condition "Like it never even happened."
