Where do you go when you have a taboo topic you need to discuss? Eyman knows that some plumbing problems are a four-letter word, but we’re not afraid to give you the down and dirty!
You walk out of the house looking your best, but has it taken a toll on your home? Common health and beauty habits can wreak havoc on your home plumbing system.
The Hair in There
Plucked, tweezed, trimmed, cut, brushed, buzzed, or shaved, once inside your drain, those tresses are stresses. From a daily shave over the sink to a few handfuls lost in the shower, you may be developing a hairy problem in your plumbing system! Regular maintenance can prevent this hairy problem from becoming a hair-do disaster.
A Drain is a Drain?
You’ve heard the saying: There are two types of people, those who pee in the shower, and liars.
You may not like to think of it, but quietly accept that your family likely does the same. It becomes a problem when it is assumed that all drains function the same. A common problem slowing drains is a buildup of uric acid.
Uric acid crystals are comprised of protein, calcium, carbon and other waste particles your body rids itself of through sweat and urine. You notice the buildup as a hard-to-wash white or yellow chalky residue and treat it with products that promise to remove scale and lime. What you don’t realize is that if you can see the buildup, the problem has very likely been growing out of sight for much longer.
Eyman has the tools and safe treatments to rid your home of calcium, lime, scale… and other organic buildup!
It’s Not Going to Make Your Drain Pretty
Makeup is an expensive art form. A labor of love, it can take you from exhausted to polished and confident in minutes. It can also take your bathroom from polished to punished in the same amount of time. Wax from lipstick and gloss, lash-building fibers from mascara, and oils from foundations and shadows can create a thick, impossible to plunge mess in your drain. Hydrojetting can powerfully blast through any makeup cake-up you can cook up!
Scrubba Dub Dub, Soap is Stopping up my Tub!
From microbeads in your exfoliator to fibers from your favorite scrubber, your grooming products may be building up in your pipes. Homemade face masks containing avocado, olive oils, banana, and oatmeal are natural ways to improve your complexion, but your bathtub doesn’t have a food disposal! While homemade masks are easy on your skin, they’re hard on your plumbing.
Try using a makeup removing wipe, or scraping the mask off of your face with a makeup spatula or spoon and discarding the remains in the trash, instead of into the sink.
If your drain is already sluggish, Eyman utilizes video inspection, or tiny cameras in your drain, to determine the cause of the blockage and the best tool for the job!
Makeup removing cloths, q-tips, and wipes make life so much easier! Dip a q-tip in nailpolish remover and instantly wipe a mess away. Flush it down the toilet and that mess is just waiting to cause you so many more problems. Be sure to only flush items specified as safe for your home sewer system!
Look your best, but skip the mess! Clean up your routine, and schedule maintenance with Eyman to keep your home running smoothly!
