Hair clogs in bath drains are a common problem, particularly if you have long hair or frequently bathe pets. When hair goes down the drain, it can become tangled with other debris and slowly build up over time, creating a blockage. If left untreated, a hair clog can prevent water from draining out of your bath and cause water to back up, resulting in unpleasant odors and breeding grounds for bacteria.
Thankfully, there are several methods you can try to remove hair clogs from your bath drain. Here are some of the most effective methods:
One of the most effective tools for removing hair clogs is a drain snake. A drain snake is a long, flexible tool that can be inserted into your drain to break up and remove clogs. To use a drain snake, simply insert it into your drain and twist it around until you feel resistance. Then, slowly push and pull the snake in and out of the drain to break up the clog.
Another effective method for removing hair clogs is to use a plunger. To use a plunger, fill your bath with a bit of water to create a seal around the plunger. Then, place the plunger over the drain and pump it up and down vigorously. This will create suction that can help break up the clog and clear your drain.
Baking soda and vinegar can be used to dissolve hair clogs and prevent future blockages. To use this method, mix equal parts baking soda and vinegar and pour the mixture down your drain. Let it sit for around 30 minutes before flushing your drain with hot water. This will help to dissolve any hair clogs and remove any buildup in your drain.
If the above methods do not work, you can also try using a commercial drain cleaner. However, be warned that these can be quite harsh and can damage your pipes if not used correctly. Always follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully and wear protective gloves and eyewear when using commercial drain cleaners.
Preventing hair clogs from forming in the first place is always better than having to deal with them after the fact. Here are some tips to help prevent hair clogs:
