Shower and Bathtub Drain Cleaning
Even though shower and bathtub drains don’t experience as many clogs as toilets or sinks, they can be just as disruptive to your daily routine. For the most part, a clogged shower drain or bathtub drain manifests through slow draining issues. Ignoring the first signs of a malfunctioning drain can make the problem worse, which is why it’s important to call a professional plumber who can fix the minor issue quickly. At All County Plumbing, we know how important it is for your shower and bathtub to work properly, which is why we’re proud to offer reliable shower and bathtub drain cleaning services.
What Causes a Clogged Shower Drain or Bathtub Drain?
Just like with bathroom sinks, the factors contributing to a clogged bathtub drain or shower drain are often preventable. The drains in your bathroom are subjected to a lot of soap, body and hair products, dirt, hair, and hard water deposits, which all contribute to slow draining issues. Simple clogs form from hair or soap scum and are typically easier to fix. Clogs caused by hard water deposits, however, are more involved and require the experience of a professional.
How to Prevent a Clogged Bathtub Drain or Shower Drain
To avoid having to deal with a slow draining or clogged tub, it’s important to be cautious of what is being washed down the drain. By actively working to prevent a clogged shower drain, you can steer clear of slow draining problems. Several things you can do to ensure your bathtub drains stay clear include:
- Pick up stray hairs or clumps instead of letting them wash down the drain. Consider putting a hair strainer on or in all drains.
- Refrain from dropping dried bits of soap that will go into the drain.
- Cautiously use boiling water or baking soda/vinegar solutions for minor issues.
- Call a plumber for routine shower and bathtub drain cleaning services to make sure your drains remain clear of any blockages.
