Here are 5 ways to remove hair from your drain from an Unley plumber from Modern Era Plumbing.
The average woman loses between 50 and 100 strands per day. Some fall out naturally, some are pulled out during brushing or styling. Most of it is lost during shower or bath time. Whatever the cause, hair falling out is normal and can’t be controlled. Although we can’t control our hair loss we can control what we do with the hair that’s fallen out.
We service Adelaide CBD, Eastern Suburbs, Western Suburbs, Northern Suburbs and the South.
Bi-Carb and Vinegar
The versatile home remedy for unclogging your drain strikes again. Mix up a 1/3 of a cup of baking soda with 1/3 of a cup of vinegar and carefully pour it down the centre of your drain. It should fizz and dissolve the hair and grime. Pull out whatever you can using your hands or a coat hanger. If that doesn’t work, give us a call, we’ll bring our hydro jet. Our Hydro Jet Drain Cleaner uses high pressure water and flow to cut through tree roots and other stubborn blockages in both sewer and stormwater drains, whilst simultaneously intensively cleaning and descouring the pipe. Call 0400 386 991.
Tweezers or a Hanger
Yank off the drain cover and use tweezers or a hanger to pull out the hair. If you plan on using your tweezers again, clean them with disinfectant afterwards.
Hair Removal Cream
If you can handle the smell and don’t mind spending the money on it, squeezing a tube of hair removal cream might do the trick. The cream breaks down the hair and can then be washed away by hot water. Although we’d recommend trying to get it out altogether.
Vacuum Cleaner or Plunger
Going back to the classics. Using a plunger to suck up grime and hair usually works if the gunk is soft and there isn’t too much build up. You can also use a vacuum cleaner although I wouldn’t recommend mixing water with electrical appliances.
