Blocked Showers

Every day in the London, Surrey and Kent showers are blocking up, due to hair, grease and a build up of grime. 

 

If your shower is blocked it is likely that you could have allowed hair to drain through the plughole into the grating - and this could cause clogging (a blocked shower).  If you are able to attempt this DIY, you MUST dispose of the hair in a bin, not in the toilet, as you may find that you could be on your way to creating a blocked toilet too. 

Soap can often be another caused of a clogged up shower drain, as soap will tend to settle and line the showers drain pipe until it gets thicker and thicker at the smallest width points and then the shower will block up.

If you can't fix your blocked shower yourself, then you will need one of DS Serve's Plumbing and Drainage engineers who are accustomed to unblocking showers, sinks, drains and blocked baths daily. 

 

DS Serve's reliable engineers have the experience and training to use several different environmentally friendly techniques when it comes to clearing shower blockages and fixing slow draining showers.  The team are accustomed to clearing blockages caused by hair becoming lodged within the grating or other pipework or from a build-up in the traps or u-bend of soap or grime.  They are even equipped to recognise and repair any underlying problem in the pipe and drain work leading to your showers.  Always leaving your shower room nice and tidy after unblocking your shower.

 

 

Preventing Blocked Showers

 

It is of course cheaper in the long run and sensible to prevent a blocked shower rather than dealing with the cost and inconvenience of unblocking it.  The first step you can take to preventing shower blockages is to ensure that when you are washing or brushing your hair in the shower, that you don't let it go down the plughole.  Those with thick hair should be particular vigilant in avoiding a blocked shower by not letting any hair slip through at all.

Further to this, you could look at regular maintenance as an option.  If you would like us to clean and/or replace your shower's traps, u-bends and piping as a periodic maintenance operation in your tenanted property or own home, contact us for an excellent quote & a 1st class service which will leave your shower's drainage system in the best possible condition for avoiding blockages - especially blockages caused by hair.
