There are many appliances in your bathroom that can malfunction and lead to water damage. From the sink to the bathtub, and shower, each area could clog or overflow. Mr Restore has responded to hundreds of water damage calls in the Dallas area that resulted from a faulty bathroom appliance. When a bathroom fixture overflows, it can lead to extensive water damage and thousands of dollars in repairs and replacements. Not only that, but water damage that has resulted in a broken sink or bathtub can be unsanitary and dangerous if left unattended for long periods of time.
While bathroom water damage and flooding can sometimes be unpredictable, there are a few things you can do to prevent it from happening.
The most common reason sinks and bathtubs overflow is because the drain has clogged. Bathroom drains can be clogged with all sorts of debris and materials, including toilet tissue, hair, and soap scum. Not only can a clogged drain lead to a flooded sink, but faulty pipes can also lead to a broken sink or tub. Unattended bathroom water can damage tile, hardwood floors, and lead to mold and mildew. Follow our tips to prevent water damage from a broken bathroom appliance:
The most common items that get lost in the drain include jewelry, chunks of soap, tissue, and small toys. If you have children, it is likely that you have experienced a small toy or other strange items caught in the sink! Practice caution when dealing with these items in the bathroom and talk to your young children about what items are allowed near the sink.
Be sure that there are not any dents or bumps in the pipes, as this can prevent water from flowing properly. Check that all pipes are securely fastened. If you are unsure if your pipes are working properly, contact a professional to inspect and fix the bathroom pipes. Some bathroom pipes are hidden or difficult to get to, which is why it is important to stay on top of their condition. It is better to be proactive than to deal with water damage disasters later!
Remember, if you find that your bathroom has suffered from flooding or water damage, do not attempt to clean up the water yourself. Some bathroom water can be considered contaminated or may need special equipment to clean up. Immediately contact Mr. Restore to help repair the damage. Our experienced technicians have over 50 years of experience dealing with bathroom water damage. We will arrive to your property within 60 minutes to assess the damage and help get your bathroom back to normal!
