Bathroom Safety

10/5/2021 (Permalink)

If you have little ones chances are you have or will experience the not so fun joy of a toilet overflowing. With little ones it is usually rubber duckies and whatever item looks fun for them to see going down the drain. If caught quickly this is typically a quick fix but if left unattended a toilet can overflow out of the bowl and to your beautiful bathroom floors. It may seem minor but this could lead to water damage, mold, and possible bio hazard (sewage water). If this happens here are a few steps if you feel it safe you can take on your own:

  1. Confirm what is actually clogging the toilet (toys, toilet paper etc.)
  2. Scoop the water out of the bowl and clean up spillage 
  3. Use a plunger
  4. Use an auger
  5. Purchase a de-clogger
  6. Stop water from flowing into the toilet bowl
  7. Call a professional (if the previous steps do not work you can always call a professional to fix the clog and repair any damage caused)
  8. As always, call SERVPRO of Spartanburg County with any questions at (864) 576-2430! We are here to help.
