Keep Your Tubs and Showers Flowing: Tips from Stefanos Plumbing & Drain Cleaning

Welcome to Stefanos Plumbing & Drain Cleaning, your trusted partner in maintaining clean and clear drains in Surrey, BC, and beyond. We understand the frustration that comes with clogged tubs and showers, disrupting your daily routine and causing inconvenience. But fear not, because we’re here to share insights into why tubs and showers clog and provide essential tips to keep them flowing smoothly.

Why Do Tubs and Showers Clog?

  1. Hair Buildup: One of the primary culprits behind clogged drains in tubs and showers is hair. Over time, strands of hair can accumulate in the drain, forming blockages that impede water flow.
  2. Soap Scum and Residue: Soap, body oils, and other grooming products can leave behind residues that gradually build up on the walls of the drain pipes. This accumulation can trap debris and contribute to clogs.
  3. Hard Water Deposits: In areas with hard water, mineral deposits can accumulate inside the pipes and showerheads. These deposits reduce water flow and make it easier for other debris to get trapped, leading to clogs.
  4. Foreign Objects: Sometimes, small objects like jewelry, bottle caps, or children’s toys accidentally find their way into the drain, causing blockages.

What to Avoid to Prevent Clogs:

  1. Limit Hair Buildup: Install a drain cover or hair catcher to trap hair before it enters the drain. Regularly clean these devices to prevent them from becoming clogged themselves.
  2. Use Drain Screens: Place a drain screen over the shower drain to catch larger debris like soap chunks and prevent them from entering the pipes.
  3. Avoid Pouring Grease: Grease and cooking oils can solidify in the pipes, creating stubborn clogs. Dispose of grease properly in the trash rather than rinsing it down the drain.
  4. Flush with Hot Water: Routinely flush your drains with hot water to help dissolve soap scum and clear away minor buildup. This simple practice can help prevent clogs from forming.
  5. Be Mindful of What Goes Down: Avoid letting foreign objects, such as cotton swabs, dental floss, or sanitary products, go down the drain. Dispose of these items in the trash instead.
