Caution: Don’t Use Liquid Drain Cleaners

Liquid drain cleaners have become a staple in our households. They offer a quick and easy solution for your clogged drains, but as a plumber, we urge you not to fall for this purchase.

These cleaners are dangerous and can cause a lot more harm than good. Not convinced? Here are a few reasons why they are so bad.

1. Drain cleaners are toxic.

Toxins are harmful to any environment, so why would you want them in your home? Liquid drain cleaners are made from toxic chemicals that might irritate your eyes or nose if the fumes hang around in your home.

2. They damage your pipes.

While liquid drain cleaners may get rid of the clog, the hydrochloric acid can eat away at your pipes. This will reduce the lifespan of your plumbing system, causing more leaks and problems in the future.

3. It isn’t a guaranteed fix.

Sometimes, slow draining sinks can be due to a broken pipe or sewer line problem. Homeowners are better off forgoing the liquid drain cleaners and hiring a drain cleaning professional, instead. You’ll save money and the hassle in the long run.
