When a toilet in a home or business overflows, the water doesn’t stay in one spot. Typically, the water will run across the bathroom floor and can affect carpeting in the next room. It will also soak into the floorboards and walls. Depending on how bad the overflow is, this type of water disaster could require major cleanup. The flooring may have to be torn up and replaced, the carpeting may be thoroughly damaged by contaminated water, and the floorboards and walls could be damaged beyond simple restoration.
Get To The Damage ASAP
Thankfully, when it comes to water damage, time can save you a lot of money and damage. The longer water sits, the longer it has to soak into the structure and deeper into materials. If you can get to it fast enough, you could save an enormous amount of time and money on the cleanup and repair process.
Mold Is A Threat
When a water disaster happens inside a building, mold is always a potential threat. Mold grows fast. It feeds on materials like carpet, insulation, and drywall and loves moist environments. When water damage turns into mold damage, you obviously have a much bigger problem to face. Mold and water damage spread quickly so be sure to contact a professional water damage restoration company that can make sure the area is treated to tackle any present, or future, mold situation.
Toilet water may or may not be a contaminated water source. Don’t try to clean up or enter an area affected by toilet water until you know for certain that it is safe. Contaminated waters can cause illness and even death. Professional water damage restoration companies can easily suit up in personal protective equipment and get the affected areas cleaned and sanitized for your safety.
