I've got a question for someone smart on this sort of thing.
Had an upstairs toilet overflow....had been running for about 30
minutes. Saw the overflow, dried/mopped the floor and had to leave.
Came home a few hours later and the ceiling on the main floor had
bubbling. I'm assuming it's a sheetrock ceiling and the bubbling
appears to outline one corner of it.
Any suggestions on what to do to minimize damage and what sort of
damage will I have to worry about.
I'm assuming the wood supports will dry out. I'm worried about mold
and what I don't know.
Thanks in advance for any advice given.
Cut down the affected sheetrock, wipe down any surfaces you can
reach with bleach, dry the area for a couple days, and
lob one of those rectangular "mothball" things that are designed
to hang from a closet-rod in there, and seal it back up.
