Over the past year, our team has received numerous calls for water damage caused by toilet overflow.
We have noticed that due to the nation wide stay at home policy , young kids had found a hobby of frequenting their toilets and stuffing toilet paper and other items that should not be in the toilet without their parents even knowing.
Here is also what you need to when when this unexpected event occurs ;
