Rental Tips: Toilet Solutions
Nothing strikes fear into the heart of a renter or rental property owner like toilet trouble. But, there are quick and easy DIY solutions available to some common problems.
As a renter there are many problems our maintenance professionals may need to handle but a clogged toilet isn’t one of them. Even if you haven’t unpacked the plunger yet a clogged toilet doesn’t need to ruin your day. Just boil some water! Yes, heat a medium sized pot of water to boiling and slowly poor it down the toilet. The hot water will dissolve the clog quickly.
Owners, do you find the floor around your bathroom toilets is consistently moldy between tenants? This could be due to condensation on your toilet tank. To prevent this, and the resulting puddles on your floor which lead to mold, line the inside of each tank with bubble wrap. Just drain the tank, line the tank and voila! No more drips or bacteria in the grout.
