The most common issue, by far, in schools is blocked toilets. Paper towels are often the main problem but the reality is that children do tend to put all sorts of things down the toilet.
The problems caused by a blocked toilet in a school or college can be huge. Having a non-working toilet can be a big issues but things can be even worse if water and waste are backing up and causing flooding in the building. If you have an issue call us immediately, and we can get the toilets working again and get the school back to normal.
