Damages to Expect from an Overflowing Toilet

9/26/2016 (Permalink)

Overflowing toilets can cause mild to moderate flooding damage, can infect surfaces all over the environment, and lead to more problems down the road.

What Damages to Expect from a Toilet Overflow

We deal with many types of water damage in the field, and although most people think of our damage services for violent and destructive events like fires and floods, a large number of our calls actually come from less violent but still troublesome problems, such as an overflowing toilet. Overflowing toilets can cause mild to moderate flooding damage, can infect surfaces all over the environment, and lead to many more problems down the road. Don't be afraid to call us for an overflowing toilet; left untreated, these can turn into much bigger disasters for your home.

Sanitary Concerns

One of the most important concerns we address when dealing with an overflowing toilet in Rexburg is sanitation. Toilets contain contaminants and microbes that could cause ill health effects, and must be treated with caution. Anywhere the waters flow over must also be sanitized thoroughly, and we must continue to check for mold growth even after the area has dried. Never attempt to clean up or dry out the waters yourself, as they may be hazardous to your health.

Water Damage

The main form of damage from an overflowing toilet typically comes in various types of water damage, most often flooding. Common issues include warped flooring materials, stained fabrics, and walls, leaks into spaces between walls and floorboards, and various degrees of damage to furniture and objects. Our SERVPRO technicians carry a diverse and well put-together set of equipment, and can deal with just about anything along these lines.

Plumbing and Pipe Replacement

Of course, whatever caused the water damage issue must be repaired, and this often means replacement of pipes and plumbing inside of the toilet. We work with you to help make sure repairs get done right, and source materials from only the best providers and contractors.
