How to Prevent Toilets From Flooding a Commercial Property

6/20/2019 (Permalink)

Most owners of commercial properties are familiar with the water damage risks that a clogged toilet poses. Serious damage may occur in the event of a toilet overflow or sewage backup. Here are three simple ways to reduce the frequency and severity of clogged toilet damages.

1. Order thinner toilet paper. Thinner toilet paper is both more cost-effective and easier on your toilets. Even if a customer or occupant flushes a large wad of thinner toilet paper, it is less likely to lead to a clog or cause a toilet to overflow than thicker toilet paper.

2. Provide wastebaskets. A wastebasket in a bathroom stall can reduce the amount of debris flushed down toilets that is likely to cause flooding. Property owners should make disposal solutions as convenient as possible to encourage building occupants to use these options rather than causing a clogged toilet.

3. Indicate bathroom rules on a sign. Posting waste disposal guidelines in a visible location in a bathroom can make a difference in occupants' behavior. Point out what should and should not be flushed to lower the frequency of clogs or flooding at a commercial property. You may also provide information for building services or other options in case an occupant or guest experiences difficulties when flushing.
