SERVPRO of Wilson/ Nashville is available 24 hours a day for water emergencies, large and small. When dealing with water damage to your commercial property, immediate action is crucial. A delay of just a few hours can significantly increase the severity of the water damage. Public restrooms are the most common cause of water damage to commercial properties.
Public restroom toilets :
Broken or worn: handle, sensors, pipes, seals, or internal plumbing.
Blockages: Flushing foreign objects or non-flushable sanitary products into the Sanitary Main; Sometimes a blockage is also the result of a combination of city and private trees where the roots penetrate the pipes. Usually if the sanitary main is affected the backflow happens slowly, giving the owner time to call a licensed plumber to assess the damage.
Leaks: that over time gets worse.
Wobbly: Water can leak from around the wax ring at the base of the toilet. It is likely you would not see any water at all but it will be soaking into the subfloor the whole time. Sometimes the first indication is the toilet starting to wobble due to the floor supporting it rotting away.
