How Showers Get Clogged
As experienced plumbing contractors, we’ve seen our share of clogged shower drains. While we’ve cleared out some odd things like toothpaste caps and razor blades, what we usually find clogging showers and tubs are hair, dead skin cells, and soap scum.
Large amounts of hair and dead skin cells flow down the shower drain every day. Over time, the hair begins to collect and clog up the drain. In some instances, drain covers can help prevent regular clogs. Residue from soap, along with mineral build-up from hard water, also contributes to clogs. If you’re multitasking in the shower by brushing your teeth or shaving, items like toothpaste caps can drop down the drain and contribute to the clog as well. Take care to retrieve dropped items before they get down the drain.
While it may be tempting to clear the clog yourself with a liquid drain cleaner, these may not always work. In fact, sometimes they may make clogs worse, or loosen the clog and send it deeper down into your pipes. When you get the help of a clogged shower drain cleaning service, you can be assured the drain will be cleaned thoroughly without damaging the pipes. Really tough clogs that have gone down main lines may require hydro-jetting.
Save yourself the time and frustration of trying to clear a clog yourself, and trust a reliable, local professional for clogged shower drain cleaning in San Pedro, CA. Call (310) 901-2120 today to schedule an appointment.
