One of the most common clogs a house may experience occurs in the shower. Wads of fallen hair mixed with soap and conditioner residue make for inconvenient clogs in your plumbing and back up your showers. Instead of reaching for harmful de-clogging solutions, use these helpful tips to prevent the clog from ever happening:
- Prior to entering your shower, brush your hair to remove as much loose hair as possible.
- Install a simple mesh drain cover or hair catcher. This inexpensive device will catch most hair and debris before it reaches the drain to clog the plumbing.
- Consider washing pets outside during the summer month. Once it becomes too cold, or if you prefer to wash them in the bathtub, use the drain cover to catch hair. You may also lay a washcloth over the drain. Be sure to remove the cloth after the bath.
