Most Common Water Damage
The most common place for a water damage is in the bathroom, and why is that? In the bathroom people throw the most random things down the drain such toys, toilet paper, wipes etc. However, the shower is not the final destination of these items, it's the toilet.
When these items are flushed down into the toilet it can cause not just a back up to your septic tank but block pipes which can lead to water damage not just inside, but outside your home as well. This can cost a lot of money, and stress. Here are some ways to avoid these mishaps.....
- Do not throw objects of any kind in the toilet. This will cause blockage.
- Always check your toilet to make sure it is flushing properly, this will help avoid a flood in the bathroom.
- Be sure to have your plumber check the toilet regularly to avoid any major damage.
- Lastly, if you suspect a blockage do not fix it yourself. Let SERVPRO take care of it for you, or a trained professional.
