Why Chemical Cleaners are Bad for Your Drains

Do you ever find yourself dealing with a clogged drain? It is a fairly common problem that plagues homeowners. As for how these issues are dealt with, many people will resort to using chemical cleaners to loosen up the blockages and clear them out. At Nu Flow St. Louis, we discourage the use of chemical cleaners for the following reasons:

Damage to the Pipes

The chemicals used for cleaning are known as "caustic" (weaker acids) or "corrosives" (more potent acids). These corrosives will eat into the metal pipes. In turn, they will damage the pipes and weaken them over time. This means that the pipes will be susceptible to many issues in the future, such as cracks, leaks, and clogs. Rather than use chemical cleaners, turn to a professional for expert drain cleaning in St. Louis, MO. At Nu Flow St. Louis, we use safe and effective methods, such as hydro jetting and drain snaking, to deal with clogged pipes.

Environment Hazard

Many chemical cleaners are toxic. They contain harmful elements that can harm the environment and your water supply. Plus, most drain cleaners are ineffective at dealing with clogs deep in your sewer line. They only eat away at a small portion of the blockage, allowing some water to pass through. You would still need drain cleaning services to get rid of the clog.

Rather than waste time and money on chemical drain cleaners, get rid of the root of the clog by turning to a professional drain cleaning company. Our drain cleaning methods remove the blockage completely to give you lasting solutions.
