Clogged Drains are unhealthy
Do you have problems with clogged drains in your bathroom/laundry? This will be very annoying because the water will smell.
Usually, the cause of clogged drains is not due to one factor alone. But the accumulation of various hair buildup in a shower drain. Hair accumulation eventually settles and clogs the drain.
Handling it may be a little inconvenient, especially without help from the best residential plumbing repair service.
It is a good idea to prevent this by installing strainers on the drains, isn't it? Here are the causes of clogged drains in the bathroom/laundry sinks and how to overcome them.
Hair and Pet Hair in Bathtub Drain
1. Hair and other materials such as human hair and pet hair or a persons hairs are often the cause of clogged drains. Hair caught in the pipe will clog and buildup within the drain.
The fix: you can use a chemical drain cleaning liquid to destroy the hair buildup etc. but long-term usage of these liquid can cause deterioration of a rubber part(s) on the drains.
Prevention: Strainers on the drains will help.
Over time, soap residue will settle on the pipe and cause the pipe diameter to decrease. Soap can also mix with other residues such as hair and dirt to create clogs. Solution: use a pressure cleaner to remove the soap scale. Prevention: use environmentally friendly soap with a little foam.
Using Laundry sinks/Drains to Wash Dirty Shoes/Sandals/tools.
2. Dirt and Debris from shoes. Avoiding any type of dirt into the laundry drain. And if at all possible in order to avoid or help from preventing stoppages.
Even yes throwing dirt directly into the drain, this will settle and cause the drain to become clogged.
Remember, dirt becomes mud. For instance from dirty sandals will clog the pipes along with soap and hair so that it will block the drains.
The solution: do regular drain cleaning by using a professional plumber to keep the entire bathroom/laundry drains clean.
Prevention: rinse dirt and mud from sandals and shoes outside. Also use a strainer to pickup anything from going down into the drain.
