Toilet Overflow Atlanta:
A toilet overflowing is not a welcome sight in any home. A toilet overflowing can cause severe damage, especially if it goes unnoticed for a long period of time. There are numerous reasons a toilet can overflow. One is a problem with
sewage backup from such things as roots in the main line, septic tank full, or busted pipe from rust. The other big cause of toilet over flow is something being flushed that should not be. For example: paper towel, tissue (example
Kleenex), feminine products (example tampons & pads), cotton swabs (example Q-tips), diapers, toys, condoms, or cat litter.

What can you do if you see the toilet is about to overflow? Take the lid off and push down the flapper. It will stop the water from going into the toilet bowl preventing toilet overflow or minimizing it. After you stop water from going into the
bowl from the tank, you can then shut off the water valve to the toilet if you want.

If the toilet overflow did get sewage onto the floor it is considered contaminated. If you caught the toilet overflow right away, the spill is pretty small, and the floor is tile, you can probably clean it yourself. You need to wear gloves to
clean up the sewage and disinfect everything. If the floor is not tile then the toilet overflow damage requires calling certified sewage cleanup specialists Flood Atlanta.

Whatever the sewage from the toilet overflow touched will have to be removed and disinfected with an antimicrobial. Then the toilet overflow damage needs to be dried out.

Sewage on the floor because of toilet overflow should not be taken lightly. There are many health risks associated with sewage. Call Flood Atlanta for a quick response and a thorough job.
Plumbing problems are never fun, but most clogs in your toilet can be fixed with a plunger. A tip to keep in mind when it comes to buying
a plunger to fix a clogged toilet is to go with the better quality bell shaped plunger and not the cheap suction cup plunger. The bell shape
plunger is a plumber’s friend and is able to put forth more pressure to clear a clogged toilet. If a plunger does not unstop your clogged
toilet, you may need a toilet snake or closet auger.
Clogged Toilet Tips
Some Fun Toilet Facts
Pomegranates with cloves stuck in them were one of the first toilet air fresheners.

$100,000 plus was used to figure out if people tend to put the toilet paper with the flap in front or in the back when replacing it in the
holder. Turns out most people put the flap in front.

Super Bowl half-time is when more people flush the toilet then any other time of the year.

We spend about 3 years over our lifetime using the toilet.

Leave It To Beaver showed the first toilet on TV.

According to dentists you need to keep your toothbrush at least 6 feet from the toilet. The reason is when you flush there are airborne
particles.

Damage to property that is caused by water is called water damage and will require a water cleanup specialist. Why
do you need water cleanup? The destructive process activated or sustained by water can range from rotting, to mold
growth, to cross contamination.

Classes of Water:

The
Water Damage Restoration Industry and the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC),
recognize Classes and Categories of Water Losses.
The official definition says that the class of water loss describes the rate of evaporation and helps water cleanup specialists to
determine the amount of drying equipment needed for the job. Simply put, class describes how large the water loss is and category
describes how contaminated is the area of the loss.

There are four classes of water loss. Class 3 being categorized by the greatest amount of water and saturation of the entire area.
Class 4 requiring longer drying times and specialty drying equipment and methods.

Categories of Water:

As mentioned earlier, categories of water loss describe the level of contamination in the area of the loss.

-          Category 1 is assigned when a the water cleanup area has been affected by ‘clean’ water, the materials affected were
clean, no odor is present, and water damage occurred less than 72 hours ago.

-          Category 2 water cleanup areas carry a significant degree of contamination such as dishwasher or washing machine
discharge, water that entered the structure from below (hydrostatic pressure), toilet bowl overflow (urine – yes, feces – no), etc.

-          Category 3 water cleanup areas carry disease-causing agents, comes from a grossly unsanitary source such as flood
waters, or beyond the toilet trap, or dwelled in a structure for more than 120 hours.
Reduce The Consequences of Water Damage

Water damage resulting in the need for water cleanup can be an expensive problem to solve, but there’s good news! You can
lessen the damage and reduce the threat of even worse consequences by calling a water cleanup company immediately. Getting
professionals on site is key to accurately assessing the damage as well as the cost. Most water cleanup companies are available
24-7 and can be on site quickly during emergency situations.

Other Water Damage Restoration Services

Some of the problems water cleanup companies can help solve are mold detection, mold removal, water clean up, flood clean up,
sewage removal, sanitization, wet materials removal, extraction of contaminated water and deodorization. Besides some of the
services listed above water cleanup technicians can handle typically handle small and large water removal projects, drying and
dehumidifying as well as removing debris and rearranging furniture as needed to ensure the job is done thoroughly. Our mitigation
company can even help remove and replace (commonly referred to as demolition) and rebuilding and/or waterproofing and erosion
control.

Should You Call a Water Cleanup Company?

A lot of people don’t know the extent of water damage caused by small leaks, moisture, etc. For that reason, many homeowners
are reluctant to call in water cleanup professionals and think they can do it themselves. If the damage is, in fact, minimal, it may be
unnecessary to hire a company to mitigate. However, most water clean up companies will come out and give an assessment for
free or for a minimal fee. Remember: when in doubt, call a certified water cleanup company for an assessment. It’s better to be
sure, especially when mold, continuing leaks, and other additional problems can cost thousands to repair.
