Water Damage Associated with Toilet Overflow

Toilet overflow can be quite common. Unfortunately, if the issue is not resolved quickly enough, it can result in water damage to your home. Did you know that one of the top five causes of home water damage is a toilet overflow? Whether there is an issue with your tank, or your toilet bowl is clogged, there are steps you can take to avoid flooding and things you can look for when assessing the flood damage.

The first step is to assess the situation. Once the flooding has been stopped, it is crucial to understand the cause of the overflow. If it is due to clogging, avoid continuous flushing. Check the entire toilet as well as surrounding areas for damage. Water may be lurking in areas you may not typically look. Keep in mind that water can travel down your walls, into your cabinets, and underneath your flooring.

After further observation, it is important to determine whether you need professional flood restoration. If the overflow contained sewage, you must contact professionals immediately as the waste poses health risks. If the spill was caused by and limited to a single flush, cleaning up may be sufficient. If the overflow continued, resulting in flooding to more than just the toilet and surrounding area, calling help is advised.

If you find yourself in a flooded home, with no idea where to start, reach out to the experts at American Restoration. We will get your home back to normal in no time!
