You’ve probably noticed the aisle at the grocery store full of shiny bottles of promising materials that want to rid you of your drain clogging woes. While the idea of just pouring a solution down your drain sounds good in theory, the truth is a lot more complicated–and sinister–than that. We only say this as your local neighborhood plumber in Boynton Beach, that a quick and easy solution like drain cleaning chemicals are usually the ones that will do the most harm. Keep reading and we’ll explain why!
The important thing we want you to take away from this blog post, is that our team has tried and tested solutions that can rid your drain of any clogging material. What makes these solutions better than drain cleaning chemicals, is that they don’t involve any chemicals and they’re perfectly safe for your home and your drain!
Chemicals Aren’t Magic
It’s important that we let our customers know that chemicals don’t magically remove clogs. They do so through chemical reactions, which are often volatile and performed with unseen consequences. Like most other things involving chemicals (from pesticides to cleaning sprays), those unintended consequences can be dealbreakers if you know about them ahead of time, so we’d like to talk about how they can cause problems for your home and why you might want to avoid them.
Three Reasons to Avoid Them
Here are three specific reasons to avoid chemical drain cleaners.
- Adverse health effects. Chemical drain cleaning solutions can leave obnoxious fumes in the air that can cause throat and respiratory problems. Also, whenever these chemicals come in contact with your skin, eyes, nose, or mouth, they can leave rashes, chemical burns, and other kinds of problems for your personal health. Steer clear of these chemicals to keep you and your family safe.
- Negative effects on your plumbing. Chemicals don’t pick and choose what they react with–often times they just react with whatever they touch first. In the case of a drain clog, while chemicals might start dissolving the clogging materials, they’ll also start dissolving the lining of your pipes which can lead to leaks down the line.
- Their poor success rate. Honestly, one of the worst aspects of chemical drain cleaners is the fact that they barely even work half of the time. This is frustrating when you’re dealing with a serious clog and you’d like to actually use your drain. With professional plumbing solutions, we have a near-perfect success rate for every drain clog we’ve encountered!
