We’ve all been there, that suspenseful moment when you flush your toilet and the water begins to rise higher… and higher… Having a toilet overflow isn’t uncommon but never the less isn’t something you hope for. Should you come across a toilet overflow emergency, follow the below steps:
Locate and turn off the water shut off valve – Typically located near the base of your toilet, but if you don’t have one open the tank and rig the float to stay in the proper position to prevent additional water from filling the tank.
Clean up any spills – If water has spilled over onto the floor, clean it up immediately. Be sure to wash and disinfect any part of the room that was dampened by toilet water.
Start plunging – Often times a clog is the culprit of the overflow, so take a toilet plunger to free up the clog.
