We get it. A clogged drain is a major pain. But before you resort to an over-the-counter drain cleaner, there are some frightening facts you should know. So listen up! As the trusted plumbing and drain cleaning company in Tampa, FL, our Cornerstone Pros team is taking initiative and sharing the chilling truth about drain cleaners with you.
It’s a spooky fact that over-the-counter drain cleaners …
Store-bought drain cleaners rely on harsh chemicals such as bleach, caustic potash and peroxide to break down hair, sludge and other gunk. Inside your pipes, the chemical reactions these cleaners create are the key to disintegrating clogs. But, outside of the pipes, these chemicals are extremely hazardous to your health. They can cause a chemical burn if they make contact with your skin and they emit strong fumes that can be fatal when breathed inside a confined space.
Sure, drain cleaners may temporarily clear your drains, but in the long run they’re extremely damaging to your fixtures and pipes. If these chemicals get stuck in your pipes, the acids challenge the integrity of your pipes and can lead to warping or corrosion—both of which can result in pipe leaks or cracks and put you at risk for a massive repair cost.
While drain cleaners are effective at clearing hair or food clogs, they’re often unable to clear more complicated clogs such as solid objects or tough mineral deposit buildup. And unfortunately, they don’t actually resolve your drainage issues. Rather, they stand as a temporary solution for a clogged drain.
So, here’s the bottom line: Success with these harsh chemicals is fleeting and only lasts for a short period of time. Before long, that old clog will return and you’ll find yourself reaching for that drain cleaner yet again. So, what’s a homeowner to do?
