Why You Should Stay Away From Liquid Drain Cleaners

No one ever wishes for a clogged drain. Some homeowners see a clogged drain as an easy "Do-It-Yourself" project. They believe that liquid drain cleaners and a little elbow grease can solve the issue. The problem is that drain cleaners solve the problem temporarily. It is a quick fix that could actually result in a costlier plumbing call. Below are some reasons why you should stay away from drain cleaners.
  • There are a lot of harmful chemicals in liquid drain cleaners. This is especially true for inexpensive drain cleaners. Unfortunately, the fumes from the drain cleaners can linger in your home long after you've poured it down the drain.
  • It is no secret that drain cleaners are supposed to clean your pipes. Ironically, liquid drain cleaners eat away at your plumbing system.
  • Drain cleaners not only have a negative impact on your health, they are also harmful to the environment. 
  • If a broken pipe is causing the clog, a drain cleaner won't solve the problem. In fact, it will only make matters worse.
