Like any water intrusion, immediate mitigation is the key to stopping damage. The cause of the in-home flooding determines the course of action our technicians employ. In the case of a toilet overflow, it may be water only or a combination of sewage and water.

Why is Quick Action Needed for a Simple Toilet Overflow?

Not only can a commode overflowing cause water damage, but if sewage is involved, it can be a biohazard. Issues that can occur with a bathroom flood requiring water cleanup in Oakland include:

  • Floor and subflooring can become water damaged
  • Contamination from a sewage spill
  • Ceiling staining and damage 
  • Foul odors from wet material or sewage
  • Moisture migrating under cabinets, bathtubs, or toilet bases
  • Mold growth
