Removing Hair from a Shower Drain
Most of us have encountered a hair-clogged shower drain at one point or another. It can create a soapy tide-pool that makes even the most luxurious of showers feel, for lack of a better word, swampy.
Before you reach for the chemical drain cleaner, consider this natural approach to removing hair from a shower drain:
STEP 1: Remove the strainer, and clean any hair at the surface of the drain.
STEP 2: Straighten out a wire coat hanger, and make a hook at the end.
STEP 3: Insert the coat hanger into the shower drain, hook-end first, and pull away slowly while making a small swivel motion. Repeat as necessary.
STEP 4: Flush away any lingering buildup with an eco-friendly drain cleaner made with baking soda, water and white vinegar.
STEP 5: Still have a clog? Fill the tub with just enough hot water to cover the drain. Position a plunger over the drain and plunge firmly for about 30 seconds.
This process should safely and effectively clear out any hair in your shower drain. If not, you may have a more serious clog on your hands. Give Jupiter-Tequesta Air Conditioning, Plumbing & Electric a call for expert help from a fully-trained plumber:
