Three Secrets to Help Keep Hair Out of Your Drain

We’re not blaming anyone’s gender in particular (cough, cough), but when hair gets in the shower drain, it can mean trouble. As hair mixes with soap, shaving cream, and other hygienic products, it creates a glob that makes it difficult for water to pass through your drain. If you notice this issue in your family’s shower, these tips can help:

Use a Drain Screen

We would recommend the metal mesh drain screen to all of our clients. It holds in the drain nicely and it traps a large amount of the things you don’t want going down your drain. You’ll have to clean it fairly frequently, but that is a small price to pay for the service it is doing. They can be purchased at any hardware store for an affordable price.

Substitute a Fabric Softener

If you’re more of a DIY person that likes to save money when they can, a fabric softener sheet can get the job done. Place the dryer sheet over the drain and it will let water pass through, but not the other stuff. You’ll have to throw it away after every shower, so weigh out the price of the drain screen and see if it is worth it.

Brush Hair Before Showering

We know it might be a little time-consuming ladies, but brushing your luscious locks before getting in the shower can make a difference. You’ll remove loose hairs before they get washed away and this can cut down on the work a drain screen has to do. You don’t have to get crazy, just run the brush through a few times to clean out any loose hairs!

We are drain doctors here at Plumbing & A/C Medic, Inc. and we see hair clogs almost every day. In your defense, they are oftentimes unavoidable, but there are steps you can take to limit damage and prolong the health of your drain. If you have this issue in The Valley, schedule an appointment with the Plumbing Medics!
