There are a few objects in the home that are used as much as a toilet. Some would say that society would not be where it is today without toilets. Sometimes, however, homeowners take them for granted. They assume that their Exton, PA, home will never have a backed up or clogged toilet. They assume their toilets will always work as they should. This is a dangerous mindset to take—it leads to poor thinking and sloppiness, which can lead to the need for professional sewage cleanup. So what causes backups in toilets? If you have any questions after reading this article, contact ServiceMaster Professional Cleaning and Restoration at (610) 524-8003.
People Put Non-Flushable Items in the Toilet
Some people treat their toilets like just another trash can. From dirty diapers to makeup to toys, just about anything that isn’t toilet paper is stuffed in them. This is dangerous. It’s the quickest way to damage a toilet, and the consequences are terrible. Be very careful about what you put in the toilets, and make sure every member of your family follows your instructions (especially children). Don’t treat toilets like sinks either. That means no food, even if the food is small. It’s a good idea to have a trash can in the bathroom to encourage its use. Tell people that if they ignore all this, you will have to pay for a sewage cleanup company to step in.
Broken Sewer Lines
If your toilets are clogging even when you’re careful about how you use them, there could be an issue with your sewer line. This could be due to the fact that your home is on the older side. Older homes may have sewer lines that were made of poorer materials, meaning they can break down over time. Before you find yourself looking for a biohazard cleanup company, pay attention to the signs before the situation gets worse.
