The maintenance of the shower drain is an important operation to guarantee the correct functioning of the drainage system and to prevent problems such as blockages or bad odours. Here are some steps to follow to perform proper maintenance:

  1. Remove Debris: Check your shower drain regularly and remove any hair, soap scum, or other debris that may have accumulated. You can do this simply by using your hands or tweezers.
  2. Use unclogging products: If you notice that the water does not flow properly, you can try using a specific unclogging product for shower drains. Follow the product instructions carefully and be careful not to damage the cover of the drain or the surrounding materials.
  3. Clean with warm water: Pour warm water into the drain to help dissolve soap residue and grease that can cause blockages. Repeat this operation periodically to keep the drain clean.
  4. Baking soda and vinegar: A natural remedy to keep the drain clean is to use a mixture of baking soda and vinegar. Pour a cup of baking soda into the drain and slowly add a cup of warm vinegar. Leave it on for a few minutes and then rinse off with plenty of warm water.
  5. Hair filters: Install a hair filter in the shower drain to prevent hair from building up and blocking the flow of water. Make sure you clean the filter regularly to keep it efficient.
  6. Avoid pouring harmful substances: Avoid pouring or throwing harmful substances, such as cooking oil, paint or chemicals, down the drain, as they can damage the drainage system and the surrounding environment.
  7. Check the Drain: Check the drain from time to time to make sure the water is flowing properly. If you notice persistent problems with your drainage, there may be a deeper blockage that requires the work of a professional plumber.
  8. Regular cleaning: To keep the shower drain in good condition, it is advisable to carry out a thorough cleaning at least once a month.

By following these simple steps, you can maintain the functionality and hygiene of your shower drain and reduce the likelihood of future problems.
