If not contained, overflowing toilets can spread damage beyond the bathroom.

Water Damage Restoration for Your Merritt Island Home

In a world without any issues, your toilet in your Merritt Island home would never leak. However, it is not a perfect world, and toilets do leak sometimes. When they do, it is not pretty, and it can cost you quite a bit in damages. In case of an emergency like this, you need to know what to do and how to react.  

Water damage to your Merritt Island home from an overflowing toilet can be a lot worse than you might think. Depending on how much water lets loose in your home and how long it sits, you can be looking at damage to your flooring and the ceiling underneath if it is an upstairs bathroom. You need the assistance of a professional remediation company right away, which is why SERVPRO is always standing by.  

Hopefully, you have at least been able to stop the flow of water before we arrive. Turning the water off at its source should be your first step. You can usually find the knob on the wall near the base of the toilet, under the tank.  

If your toilet isn’t overflowing due to a blockage, it might be that you need to adjust the float. Raise or lower it until reaching the right bowl fill level. If your toilet is clogged, do not flush it again, as this can create more water to overflow. After stopping the flow of water, you can try using a plunger to loosen the clog.  

Once removing standing water, SERVPRO staff use moisture meters and thermal imaging cameras to check for damage done to flooring, subflooring, and the ceiling underneath. Finding all hidden moisture helps us to thoroughly dry and restore the damage done to your home by the overflow. We do not want to leave any behind, as that can continue to create additional damage, such as mold growth and weakening of your structure.  

SERVPRO of Central Brevard understands that a water damage emergency of any kind in your home in Sharpes, Rockledge, or Cocoa Beach needs immediate attention. Get in touch with us right away by dialing (321) 638-4947 so we can prevent further issues caused by the water now sitting in your home.
