Many individuals try to fix their drain problems in their own home. This, however, can be extremely problematic. Sadly, this makes people go straight to the liquid drain cleaners, which can be extremely bad for your drains. These have been known to do more harm than help, which is a huge issue. Let’s take a look at some of the reasons why you may want to switch from using liquid drain cleaners.
Damage: Liquid drain cleaners can cause quite a few problems, including pipe damage. The toxic elements of the drain cleaners can eat through the pipes, and over time, this can cause severe damage and cost a whole lot of money to repair, once the damage is done.
Toxic: Drain cleaners are extremely toxic. You can see that one the back of one of the bottles, there is often hazards and cautions as to essentially staying away from these items. Similarly, the off-brand versions, as well as inexpensive ones are more likely to contain more chemicals and be more potentially detrimental to your health. While you obviously don’t want to consume this in anyways, it can also cause damage to your eyes, as well as causing problems with health if even inhaled.
Effectiveness: The worst part about liquid drain cleaners is that they might not even work in the way that they say they do.
