When an appliance failure causes a toilet, washing machine, or dishwasher to overflow, are you ready for a plumbing emergency? It’s important to get the water flow stopped immediately then clean any water on the floor before it causes major damage. Here are a few tips.
- Know where the turn-off valves are for the water supply. Shutting of the water is the first thing you need to do.
- Have all the basic items needed for a water leak cleanup in every room that has the potential for disaster. Keep a bucket, full roll of paper towels, rags, and a mop so you can quickly grab all that you need.
