Plumbing overflow cleanup for no repeat plunging events Plumbing overflows or backups can happen at any time, without warning, especially with older plumbing or sewer lines. These accidents may not only leave your kitchen and bathroom a mess, they can also lead to water damage to your cabinets, walls or floors, as well as the growth of mold. When your sink, garbage disposal, toilet or bathtub overflows, rely on Woodard’s experience and licensed professionals for cleanup and restoration done right the first time. With top-of-the-line equipment including turbo dryers, Woodard will get your kitchen or bathroom completely dry and sanitary in no time. Prevent plumbing overflows If your home’s sewer system is connected to the city’s sewer system (this is common for older homes) or if you’re located downhill or below street level, immediately request a plumbing professional to install backflow prevention into your home’s sewer system. Don’t plant trees near lateral drain lines, because the roots could cause damage to your pipes as they grow. Don’t pour grease down your drain. Don’t flush sanitary products, baby wipes, towelettes or disinfecting wipes — even the flushable ones — down the toilet because they can clog your plumbing and the public sewer system. When you need plumbing overflow cleanup services, also consider Woodard’s hard surface care, rug cleaning and mold removal services.
