If you've noticed there is water and waste flooding around the base of your toilet and the floor in the
Avoid Further Damage
If the seal on the toilet is broken or if there is a backup in the sewer lines, using any water in the house could force the water to leak into different areas. The water could also start to come up different drains around the house, and you won't know where all the waste and bacteria is. Trying to clog the toilet could also do damage by forcing too much pressure on the clog, creating pipe damage and overflow. The plumbers will search the pipes with drain cameras to see what the problem is right away.
Prevent Health Risks
The waste around your bathroom could lead to health problems like viral gastroenteritis, hepatitis A and more. The more areas of the house where it leaks, and the longer it's airborne and can be inhaled, the more likely you will be to get ill from the exposure. You want to get the plumber to your house to prevent the waste from leaking, and to pump out the system if needed to stop stagnate waste from sitting in the drains.
Avoid Property Damage
The ground could be wet where your septic tank or sewage lines are. If the leak or concern is affecting the septic tank or exterior sewer lines, this could cause a lot of exterior health problems and property damage. Your entire property could be contaminated, along with the neighbors around you. The toxins can affect wildlife, and the exterior leak could be damaging your foundation. Getting the leaked stop is key to avoid further exterior complications.
If you aren't sure why you have sewage flooding around your bathroom, and you are suspicious that you could have backup problems in other areas around or outside the house, you have to call a plumber to care for your sewage concerns immediately. After the plumbing problem is resolved, you should have a professional cleaning company come in to remove the bacteria and odors around the home.
