Keeping Hair Out of the Sink in the Bathroom

Written by 

The bathroom room sink is designed for draining the dirty water in the bathroom, but over a period of time other dirt and residues in the bathroom will also get deposited in the sink. If the dirt particles are small in size like detergent particles, mud and dust, they will get drained away along with the dirty water into the SWR system. However, larger residues like human hair will get deposited in the drains, as they not washed away easily. These hair strands can impede the flow of water in the drain, clogging the drains. This articles look at the options available for keeping hair out of the sink in the bathroom.

Before trying to find the ways to keep hair out of the sink in the bathroom, it is essential to understand the reason why and how the hair enters the sink in the bathroom. Most of the hair that accumulates in the sink is not intentional, it accumulates over a period of time. A person suffering from hair loss, will have his or her hair falling all the time, and there is little he or she can do to prevent the falling hair from accumulating in the bathroom. Another common reason for hair fall is while taking a bath, especially for women who have longer hair. During the bath, some hair strands may fall off due to the pressure applied to the hair. During a hair cut, some hair may fall on the body, and this hair when washed off can accumulate in the drain.

Keeping hair out of the sink in the bathroom involves reducing or preventing hair fall in the bathroom. This can be done by combing the hair before entering the bathroom. When the hair is being combed, any lose strands of hair will fall off and can be thrown in the dustbin, and this will prevent hair fall in the bathroom. Do not apply much pressure on the hair while washing the hair to reduce the hair loss. While having a haircut, keep the body fully covered to prevent hair falling on the body.

However, despite taking all precautions, there will always be some hair accumulating in the sink in the bathroom, and it is advisable to remove this hair at the earliest to prevent clogging. Periodically checking the sink for clogging and removing the hair manually is one way to remove the hair. There are special filters available, which trap all larger dirt particles, and these could be used to trap the human hair. Additionally there are drain cleaning chemicals available, which react with the water in the sink to form solvents which dissolve the hair and other sediments in the sink. These chemicals should be used periodically to keep the sink free of hair.
