Inspection and Maintenance Tips for Your Toilet

Indoor plumbing is a wonderful thing and functioning toilets are a necessity. Every home has toilets, and they can cause water damage when they fail. At SERVPRO® of Miami Beach, we respond to water damage emergencies throughout the year and know that some toilet failure emergencies may be prevented. Here are some preventative maintenance steps to protect your toilet from failing from the Institute for Business and Home Safety:

  • Be patient after you flush and wait for the valve to completely finish refilling the tank and bowl. If an overflow looks imminent, lift off the tank cover and lift the float to shut off water flow to the tank, and then turn off the supply valve.
  • Twice a year, inspect a toilet’s components, such as the fill, supply, and flush valves, and the supply line. Make sure you can turn off the supply. If you have older screw type valves that are hard to turn or start leaking, consider replacing them with simpler ball valves that are easy to shut off quickly.
