How Chemical Drain Cleaners Harm Your Drains

Rated 4.9 out of 998 reviews

If you’re looking for a way to clear your drains of buildup and keep clogs at bay, professional drain cleaning is the way to go. We know that there are store-bought liquids sold on shelves, but are chemical drain cleaners really a solution at all?

The Chemicals In Drain Cleaners Are Unsafe

As it turns out, chemical drain cleaners are some of the most harmful substances sold in the U.S. They are available for any consumer to purchase, even though they are highly toxic, harmful to ingest, and can injure the eyes and skin. If you have children or pets in the home, please avoid storing these chemicals within reach. In fact, we think that you should avoid buying them altogether.

Store-Bought Chemicals Damage Drains

The chemicals used to make these drain cleaners are meant to eat away at a blockage in order to clear up the drains. Unfortunately, they can also dissolve the lining of your drainpipes.

We strongly recommend against using them for the well-being of your pipes.

You Only Delay a Clog

In many cases, using chemical drain cleaners only delays a clog.

Once a clog reaches the sewer line, your chemical drain cleaner will not be able to reach it, and you’ll need professional tools, like a high-quality hydro jetter, to tackle the blockage. Professional hydro jetting helps to clear out the drain and sewer line and stop drain and sewer clogs from returning in the near future.

Call Ace Pelizon Plumbing for drain and sewer cleaning service with hydro jetting in West Covina or a surrounding area. World class service is just around the corner!
