Debris and Build-Up in Your Shower Drain

Pipes are designed for the downward flow of water- not trash. Some of the most common foreign objects blocking your shower drain include:

  • Hair
  • Soap and scum build-up
  • Plastic wrappers and lids
  • Hair bands and pins
  • Sanitary items
  • Children’s toys

Use a shower drain catcher to trap any stuff before it ever gets into your pipes.

Sometimes, old galvanized drains can start to rust from the inside causing a restriction in the flow of water draining away. Plus, there are many minerals and other substances found in water, and they can leave sediment deposits on the inside of your pipes. If enough sediment builds up, it can restrict or even block water flow through your shower drain.

Over time, the structure of your pipes can weaken, leading to cracks and breakage. When there are cracks in the pipe, it is much easier for bits of hair and other debris to get stuck, leading to blockages. Bad installation can also lead to blocked shower drains.  

Mold and Environmental Hazard Remediation and Removal

Your bathtub and toilet drain down separate pipes until they reach the main sewer line, which is the primary pipe to which all drains in your house lead. Eventually, all the drained materials mix and are forced out of your home through one line: the sewer main.  So any extra water in your bathroom needs immediate attention. 

For safety sake, you will want to address bathroom flooding as quickly as you can. Standing water quickly seeps through the bathroom floor and down into the subflooring. As it soaks baseboards, drywall and cabinets, the water creates a humid environment that can breed mold and mildew in just 24 hours. And if the mess came is “black water”, you have to get the experts in right away.

They will evaluate the damage and assess the best method of removal, cleanup and remediation.
