Don’t Put Chemicals Down Your Drain

Posted on March 6th, 2017 by Jupiter Tequesta

Is your home suffering from a clogged drain? This is actually a common problem for most homeowners. While it may seem easier to grab a bottle of drain cleaner from the store, those commercial chemical cleaners can end up doing more harm than good. Here are four reasons why you shouldn’t rely on liquid drain cleaners:

 1. Drain cleaners are toxic. The fumes are unhealthy to inhale and can irritate your nose and eyes. Don’t think this will go away quickly either; these fumes hang around wherever the chemical was used long after it goes down the drain.

 2. They damage your plumbing pipes. If you use chemicals to clean your drain, you’ll end up harming your pipes at the same time. The main chemical in commercial cleaning solutions is hydrochloric acid, which will strip off the enamel and other expensive finishes in your kitchen and bathroom.

 3. Drain cleaners are harmful to the environment. The residue left in the drain cleaning bottles ends up in landfills and can enter the water, poisoning fish and other wildlife.

 4. Commercial drain cleaners may not even work. Drains sometimes back up because of trouble in the sewer line or because of broken pipes. It’s important to figure out what’s causing the clog before you start dumping chemicals down the drain.
