Toddlers are amazing. They’re discovering the world and how it works, which means life is a constant adventure- for them, and for everyone around them. Toddlers also spend a lot of time working on potty training. The toilet is absolutely fascinating for little kids. They love to flush – and sometimes they love to put their toys in the toilet before they flush.
Discovering your child has flushed their stuffed animal down the toilet puts your parenting skills to the test. First, you’ve got the challenge of helping your child understand that particular toy is gone forever. Even after your NYC plumber clears the sewer drain pipe, the toy will not be safe for your child to play with. Depending on your child’s relationship with the toy, that can be no big deal or a total catastrophe. Good luck!
It is sometimes possible to dislodge a stuffed animal with a plunger and remove it from the toilet bowl. However, if you can’t see the stuffed animal, it’s time to call in your NYC plumber. Stuffed animals form extremely effective sewer drain clogs. This means your toilet will back up and overflow – what a mess!
Drain cleaning is a service your NYC plumber performs regularly. They have the specialized equipment to get the job done quickly and efficiently, and can handle even the most severe clogs. Call them and let them know what’s happened; they will dispatch a licensed, experienced plumber to your location. In the meantime, it’s best to avoid using the toilet. Don’t flush the toilet repeatedly in the hopes of clearing the stuffed animal away: doing so may result in you flooding your apartment!
