The cleanest flood
The next NYC renter on this list experienced a pretty hilarious event in their apartment. Their toilet overflowed, but the flood was fairly clean as the renter put it. While this is kind of a common event, not all floods are created equally. Some are cleaner than others.
The toilet bowl cleaner helped with the naming of this one, and eventually to us deeming it a clean flood. It turns out that old plumbing was to blame for this occurrence. And the story only gets better from here. There was a colony of ants and a mouse joined the party.
