The bathroom is one of the most likely spots in your home for flooding to occur. The plumbing fixtures in the bathroom including the sink, toilet, and bathtub can leak or backup at any time and create a huge mess. A flooded bathroom can sustain damage very quickly as the water penetrates the walls and flooring which leads to structural damage and there is a good chance a bathroom flood can result in mold. Fortunately, bathroom flooding can be prevented if you know how to inspect your bathroom for signs of flooding.
