Why Store Bought Drain Cleaners Are Not a Good Idea

Why Store Bought Drain Cleaners Are Not a Good Idea

Let’s take a look at why hiring a professional drain cleaning services are a much better option.

Having a drain clogged is every homeowner nightmare, so you might be tempted to just go to a store and pick up an off-the-shelf drain cleaner to take care of it. This is a mistake as store bought drain cleaners actually leave your drains worse off in the long run, even if they solve the immediate problem.

The Problem with Store Bought Cleaners

The reason that store bought drain cleaners are so effective at cleaning out the drains clogs is that the vast majority of them are highly corrosive. This eats through the clog well enough, but it will also damage the pipes. If you use store bought cleaners over a period of years to treat drain clogs, you will end up degrading your pipes to the point that they need to be replaced. Store bought drain cleaners also don’t completely get rid of the waste build-up on the walls of the pipe. This makes it easier for clogs to form in the future.

Professional Drain Cleaning

Professional plumbers such as Logical Heating & Plumbing Solution, are well aware of how damaging store bought drain cleaners can be, which is why they don’t use them. Instead, they use a couple of different procedure to get rid of clogs. Drain snaking is a procedure that involves using an auger on a long cable to drill through the clog. This is the most common method of drain cleaning. Hydro-jetting is also used, which basically involves firing a high pressure stream of water through the pipe to blast all of the waste out of it. These procedures clear up the clog without damaging the pipes.
