For some people, there is very little hair stuck in the drains after a shower. For others, cleaning out the shower drain is a process that's only complicated by the amount of hair left in the bathroom drain. Thankfully, getting the hair out of the drain and restoring everything to perfect working order again is an easy solution. There are many ways to solve this problem and here are just a few:
- Just like with a toilet, you can always use a plunger to clean out the shower drain. Simply place the plunger over the drain and suction out any blockage (in this case hair).
- Snaking the drain is an option if you find yourself to be dexterous. Simply lower the snake through the overflow plate opening and maneuver it until you find the clog. Keep a stream of water running while you do this to help the snake move easier.
- Chemicals may work with some clogs, but hair is harder to break up. For this reason, pouring chemicals down the drain may not be ideal in this case.
