Peninsula Takes Care of Clogged Shower and Tub Drains
Clogged drains are not always caused by something as simple as too much hair washing down your shower or tub drain.

Tips to Help Prevent a Clogged Shower or Tub Drain
Shower or tub drain maintenance can sometimes feel like just another thing to add to your to-do list. At Peninsula, we understand that you’re busy. But, the following drain maintenance tips may actually save you time, money, and frustration down the road. If you’ve recently had your drains cleaned, here are some things you can try to keep your shower or tub drains clear longer:
- Place a drain trap over your shower and tub drains: Using a mesh screen, or another kind of drain trap, to protect your shower and tub drains is a simple way to keep unwanted things from getting into your pipes. Drain traps can catch hair and thick soap residue before those substances have a chance to cause a clogged drain.
- Brush hair before using the shower or tub: Yes, this may sound like a strange tip for drain maintenance. But, a majority of simple clogs are caused by too much hair getting into your shower drain. Brushing hair before getting in the shower or taking a bath removes a lot of the loose hair from your head. So, much less hair will find its way into your shower or tub drain.
- Wash pets outside or in a washtub: When the weather allows it, you should always opt to wash your pets outside, instead of in your shower or tub. During the colder months, using a portable washtub indoors, and emptying it outside, lets you avoid washing gobs of pet hair down your tub drain. If it is absolutely necessary to use your bathtub or shower to wash your pet, put a washcloth or rag over the drain. This will catch excess pet hair and dander, which you can throw in the trash, helping you avoid a clogged drain.
- Regularly “rinse” your drains: A heavy duty drain maintenance method for avoiding a clogged shower drain is to pour a tablespoon of salt into your shower or tub drain. Immediately follow the salt by one-fourth cup of plain white vinegar, and let it sit for an hour. Rinse the two down your drain with hot water; doing this two times in a row yields the best results for clear drains.
If you practice these tips regularly, drain maintenance will become a habit for you, and you will find yourself with clogged drains much less often. Unfortunately, your shower drains or tub drains may still become clogged from time to time, making professional drain cleaning a necessity.
