Drano© vs. Professional Plumber

Drano© vs. Professional Plumber

If you’ve got a clogged drain, you should always call a professional plumber.  Using a store-bought drain cleaner could wreak havoc on your entire plumbing system, causing a lot of damage and costly repairs.  The harsh chemicals found in Drano© and Liquid Plumbr© can eat away and erode both metal and plastic piping. It can even cause damage to the finish on fixtures. If the liquid drain cleaner accidentally gets combined with any other household chemicals, the concoction can explode causing broken fixtures, cabinetry, walls, etc.  

So what should you do if you have a clogged drain? 

Call a licensed plumber.  Most plumbers will come to your home, inspect the drain, and give you a free estimate.  Using the professional services of a licensed plumber with the proper tools will always help you avoid worse plumbing problems that can be caused by trying to unclog a drain yourself.  Using harsh chemicals to do the job is very risky when a plumber’s pipe snake will safely clear a clogged pipe.

In conclusion, although it may be your first instinct to run out to the store and purchase a chemical drain cleaner like Drano© or Liquid Plumbr© when you have a clogged drain, don’t do it!  Though it might provide a quick fix, it’s a temporary solution that could wind up costing you a lot more than it’s worth.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to give us a call, we will be more than happy to help, (800) 483-0784.
