It’s easy to let our guard down in the shower. We’re alone, the water is cascading over our heads, and all our troubles seem far away. But what if we told you that letting your hair down, down the drain, is costing you money? That’s right – by not taking a few simple steps to keep your locks out of the sewer system, you’re flushing cash down the drain!
Bill’s Plumbing and Sewer will share with you four reasons why you should keep hair away from the drains!
Clogged Drains are Bad News:
Drains are made to, well, drain. If you let your hair freely fall into the shower drain, it can quickly become clogged. When your hair goes down the drain, it takes with it a whole bunch of other gunk – like soap scum, shampoo residue, and dirt. All of this can slow drainage and even cause backups!
Cleaning clogged drains is a hassle, and it’s not a job you want to be regularly doing. Save yourself the trouble, and keep your hair out of it!
It’s Expensive to Clean Up Clogged Drains:
Not only is it a pain to have to deal with clogged drains, but it’s also expensive. Professional plumbers often charge by the hour, so if you constantly have to call them out to unclog your drains, you’re going from spending money on water bills to spending money on plumbing bills!
It can be cleaned up with a simple drain catcher, but it’s unpleasant and unhygienic to have rotting food and hair in your sink.
You Could Cause Serious Damage:
If left unchecked, clogged drains can lead to some serious plumbing problems. When water cannot drain properly, it will start to back up into your home through the pipes. It can cause extensive water damage, which is terrible for your home and wallet.
Water damage can cause severe issues like mold and mildew that can harm your health. So, do yourself a favor and keep your drains clear!
It’s Just Gross:
Hair in the drain is just gross. No one wants to see hair clogging up their sink or shower, and no one wants to think about where that hair came from. It’s much better to keep your drains clear and free of unwanted guests.
Can you imagine the embarrassment of having a guest come to your house and see hair clogging up your drains? They might probably end up recommending a grandma’s hair oil’s secret recipe or a treatment at the salon.
Hair can be pretty damaging to your pipes. It can cause them to become blocked or even break. It can clog up the drain field and cause severe problems with a septic system.
