Tips to keep hair salon sinks unclogged
As professionals of the drain cleaning industry–Αποφράξεις Αντωνίου-, we come across clogs every day. Most of the time, home clogs are caused due to excess hair strands that end up in the drains. Imagine what would happen in a hair salon! All of these hair strands will eventually create a clog. This is why we decided to write about tips to keep hair salon sinks unclogged.
In residential situations, hair clogs are between the most usual issues that homeowners deal with in their bath tubs, sink and shower drains. So, it is not hard to imagine the plumbing nightmares that are about to occur at a hair salon, where hair of every length, thickness and size can find its way into pretty much every corner of the building, including of course, sinks and drains.
Just by knowing how much loose hair exists at a business like this, it seems like a reasonable thing to suggest some preventative measures to ensure that major plumbing issues don’t occur. Here at –Αποφράξεις Αντωνίου-, we’ve had more than our share of service emergency calls to hair salons, so we would recommend the following actions to cut down on the times you will call a professional during the course of a year.
#1 Catch the Hair Before it Goes in the Drain
On its own, hair can be the bane of any hair stylist’s existence, especially considering how much shampoo mixes with the loose hair that ultimately enters these drains. The best way to ensure those gunky clogs don’t form in your drains is to catch the hair before it gets there. That means investing in some sort of hair stopper, mesh screens or hair traps. Some sinks have stopper assemblies with screens built in. Catch all that soapy or gelled-up hair and clean the stoppers regularly to ensure those clogs never form in the first place.
#2 Be Smart About Troublesome Chemicals
Hair salons deal with a number of chemicals such as hair bleach and cleaning materials which are required for coloring or setting hair, and as we know, much of those chemicals are going down the drain. An already existing clog can create big-time problems for the salon owner. We do not recommend using a drain cleaner to unclog those blockages because the combination of chemicals can be very corrosive for the pipes and system.
Regular drain cleanings done by a professional drain cleaning crew, can help ensure this doesn’t happen. They will clean and inspect your pipes often so that you will not come across any clogs.
#3 Flush Your Drains
One solution and preventative approach to clogs -Αποφράξεις Πειραιάς- is to regularly flush your sinks with a full kettle or pot of hot water. To do this, simply fill up a large container with water, put it on the heat and then dump the whole thing down the drain. Sometimes the low-pressure water of your sinks is not enough to flush away any objects that block the drain. So according to this, a bigger flush may do the trick.
