We mentioned in our last blog how drain cleaning chemicals should be avoided if you’d like to extend the lifespan and functionality of your drains, but we didn’t really get into the details. There’s a wide variety of drain chemicals at hardware stores. Some of them are acidic, some are caustic, and others are just… well… we’re not really sure what they are. And that’s the problem.
Drain chemicals don’t take the precise, surgical approach to your drain clog that a professional plumber would. Pros are humans, people who can locate your drain clog, determine what’s causing it, and provide a solution that won’t hurt the lining or interior material of your pipes. Drain chemicals are like weapons; they operate by destroying everything in their path–without precision or discretion–whether it’s a drain clog or your pipe lining. Your best bet is to hire a plumber for drain cleaning in Appleton, WI and here’s why.
