Clogged shower or tub drain cleaning

Many things can collect in the drains of your shower or tub. This might include soap, dirt, hair, and oils. If you have kids, a clogged bathroom drain could be caused by small toys finding their way into your tub.

When these items build up in your drains, it can cause a serious clog. The first sign will likely be that the water in your tub or shower drains a lot slower. Overtime, this slow draining can become a full clog, causing the water that should go down your pipes to back up into your tub or shower. Some other signals that could mean you have a shower or tub drain clog include:

  • You can see water pooling around your shower drain before it drains.
  • Gurgling sounds coming from the drain.
  • A puddle of water around the floor near your tub.
  • Bad odors rising up from the drain.

If you have any of these things happening in your shower or tub, it is best to have an expert investigate the situation and clean out any material that is clogging your drains.

The dangers of a clogged shower or tub drain

A little water that drains slowly may not seem like much of an issue. However, if the materials that are clogging your drains are left alone, they could turn into bigger problems.

The dangers of shower clogs that are left to themselves can include severe leaks and overflows, which can cause damage to your home’s structure. A pipe that continues to build up materials could also break, again causing damage to your home’s structure.

What seems a small problem can quickly escalate, so don’t wait to have your clogged shower drain or clogged tub drain cleaned! The team at James A. Wheat & Sons can help. We offer a full range of plumbing services throughout Montgomery County, Maryland, and Washington, DC.
