Leaking Toilet Causes Mold Outbreak in Valparaiso Home?

4/25/2023 (Permalink)

A leaking toilet seal is being replaced. We are trusted leaders in water and mold damage restoration in Okaloosa County.

Our local team in Fort Walton Beach has been remediating mold damage in Valparaiso for over twenty years. Almost all mold problems originate from water damage, so if you have had recent water damage or water leaks, you may have a mold problem. Toilet leaks are a common cause of mold damage. The Environmental Protection Agency offers the following tips for detecting a toilet leak:

  • One way to find out if you have a toilet leak is to place a drop of food coloring in the toilet tank. If the color shows up in the bowl within ten minutes without flushing, you have a leak. Make sure to flush immediately after this experiment to avoid staining the tank.
  • If your toilet is leaking, the cause is often an old faulty toilet flapper. Over time, this inexpensive rubber part decays, or minerals build up on it. It’s usually best to replace the whole flapper, which is a relatively easy and inexpensive do-it-yourself project that pays for itself in no time.
