Does Your Toilet Overflow When You Shower?

Toilet Does your toilet overflow when you shower?

The worst type of surprise occurs when you step out of a shower and place your newly cleaned foot into a pool of water from a toilet that overflowed. How could that happen? Not only must the water be cleaned from the floor, but you probably want to dry off and get dressed before dealing with the overflowing liquid or the professional service you may want to call for help dealing with the sewage cleaning problem.

Why Did the Toilet Overflow?

The sewage system that links your home to the Rob Roy, TX, main removal lines runs underground for many feet, and all your home’s plumbing pipes converge into a central location to flow into that main pipe and out to the street. So why would your shower water back up into the toilet? Here are a few of the many reasons a toilet overflow may occur.

  • Household obstruction between the street and the main house sewer line
  • Broken sewage line between the house and street
  • Tree roots or debris in the main house line

Any of these problems can cause the water to flow out the toilet instead of out to the city’s main sewage lines. Additionally, each probably requires a professional sewage cleaning solution.

How Can a Professional Help?

Your service professional will likely deal with the standing water first because the longer the liquid sits on the floor, the more damage it can do. Once the water is gone, he or she can figure out where the blockage is and begin to remove the obstruction in the clogged pipe. Water remediation specialists can then sanitize the area and check for any extensive water damage in your home.

When dealing with a serious sewer pipe clog between the house and main line, care should be taken. Calling in a service professional is always a good idea rather than attempting sewage cleaning on your own. Removing the clog in the line may be a quick fix, and the professional can save you time and money.
