Do you ever finish a shower and realize you are standing in 4 inches of water? This is a telltale sign of a clogged tub. Simply hoping all that excess water will drain normally is not the answer. While this may seem like a simple problem, a clogged tub can actually cause damage to your home.
There are two main culprits in a clogged tub. Soap and Hair! Soap alone is usually not an issue, but when it combines with hair over time it can cause major drainage issues. Some clogs are fairly visible to the naked eye and therefore easy to remove. We have all done this before, by simply reaching into the tub drain and pulling out a clump of soap and hair. (Ew!) However, many times these clogs are lodged deep within the pipe. As you can image, these problems tend to compound with multiple clogs and cause serious problems.
