Overflowed toilets are a worst nightmare for anyone with a home. The mess and odors associated with a overflow will be overwhelming. That is why SERVPRO of Decatur is here to help!
A toilet overflow usually occurs when a blockage in your piping system prevents water and waste from going through. This creates pressure and water and waste buildup in your pipes. When this happens zero flow through is happening, and this often leads to some form of backup somewhere in your home. As your toilet backs up water and waste will become visible as well as a nasty smell. If not handled quickly it may cause secondary damage by entering other areas of your home.
Other common causes of overflowing toilets are: sewage backups, septic tank buildup, septic tank failure, low flow toilets and faulty plumbing.
