What Causes Toilet Overflows or Backups?

Toilets can overflow or backup from a few different sources. To understand and prevent this from happening, we have listed the precautionary sources and methods:

  1. Clogged Toilet

A clog can possibly happen when a particular solid object or other mass causes a blocking of the line that allows the waste to travel from the bowl to the sewer. It can possibly include the accumulation of human hair, flushed toilet paper, feminine pads, other thick materials (clothing/towel) as well as the common, children’s’ toys. Children love to get into mischief, so flushing a toy down the toilet bowl seems like the right thing to do! These objects have the ability to make the passage of water difficult causing both the waste and the water to back flow. When this situation happens and the water in the tank does not stop from flowing, there will surely be spills of water on the surrounding spaces. If not caught in time, this can cause serious flooding and major damage to your property.

  1. Tank Malfunction

The malfunctioning of the water tanks can also bring on similar flooding with water, which usually involves less contamination. Toilet tanks are designed in order to stop filling the tank, as well as the bowl, with water when a designated volume has been reached. If a certain part of the internal mechanism has been broken, the water can continuously flow and may cause the tank bowl to overflow and allow water to flow over. If you notice after you flush and you hear the sound of “water running” from the toilet, make sure to check all the mechanisms in the tank. This can lead to overflow in certain circumstances which is better to be prevented if possible!

  1. Sewer Backups

It is common to have water in the basement from a sewer backup, but what you might not realize is that it can come out of your toilet or bathtub as well. All the pipes in our home are connected so if water has nowhere else to go, it will travel through any possible openings that it can find. This is dirty or grey water as it comes from the sewer; it can contain harmful bacteria so it needs to be cleaned by a professional with an antimicrobial to ensure everyone’s health and safety.

An overflowing toilet shows a variety of dangers that can possibly happen to your property. The water that overflows is usually prone to contamination, so it is very important to contact an expert like us, Canada's Restoration Services Vancouver, to properly clean and deal with the flood.

Not only are there immediate damages but secondary water damage can occur as well. The longer the wet materials are left, the more exposure to this you are. You can experience permanent damages on the structure of your home and an intensive amount of mold growth can occur. It can also cause appliance damages, the creation of electrical hazards as well as the creation of fire hazard.

We at Canada's Restoration Services are highly qualified contractors who are equipped with superior skills that can do the job right the first time! We guarantee to give quick response time and arrivals so that any secondary water damage can be prevented. You can rely to us. We are going to make sure that it will be dealt with professional and promptly so your home or property is back to its usual working order.
