Store-bought Drain Cleaners Vs. Professional Drain Cleaning Services

You and your family rely on your home for comfort, and a huge part of that comfort comes from your plumbing system. You need your home’s plumbing to be efficient, convenient, and functional, but clogged drains can make it inconvenient and frustrating to use. Many homeowners faced with clogged drains try using store-bought products to remedy the problem, but this solutions is temporary at best, and it doesn’t begin to compare the services that the San Francisco plumbers at Sugar Bear Plumbing Co. can offer.

In order for your plumbing system to work properly you need your drains to be in great condition, so when you need to have those drains cleaned, you need to know the job is being done effectively. Compared to professional drain cleaning services, store-bought drain cleaners are ineffective, they’re often toxic, and they can even end up doing damage to your plumbing system.

Our professional plumbers will be able to remove any obstructions in your drains or pipes without using any toxic substances, and we’ll be able to guarantee the most thorough and effective drain and pipe cleanings possible.

Major Problems with Store-Bough Drain Cleaners

  1. They’re Ineffective

Store-bought drain cleaning products may advertise otherwise, but they won’t be able to remove obstructions or build-ups in your drains as effectively as a professional plumber. Drain cleaning solutions are typically made of corrosive substances that are intended to dissolve the obstruction. However, only a small portion of the blockage needs to be corroded in order for the solution to move past it, so much of the obstruction will be left in your San Francisco home’s drains.

During our professional drain cleaning services, we’ll be able to find any and all of the obstruction in your pipes and ensure that they’re completely removed. Store-bought chemicals will allow your clogs to build up again over time and lead to a cycle of slow and clogged drains.

  1. They’re Toxic

The toxicity of store-bought drain cleaners is another major problem. They’re usually made of unhealthy materials such as acid, caustic substances, and basic solvents (i.e., bleach, lye, peroxides, potash, and nitrates). These substances can be very harmful if they’re swallowed and may cause severe damage to your skin and eyes.

Because store-bought drain cleaning products need to be corrosive in order to work, they can also cause damage to your San Francisco home’s plumbing. Metal plumbing could start to break down after continually coming into contact with these substances, and PVC piping is even more likely to be damaged.
