Do drain cleaners really work?

It’s understandable why a lot of homeowners would resort to drain cleaners to deal with slow or clogged drains—such products seem to offer a “quick fix” to the problem, no external help required, and of course, drain cleaners are the more affordable option and they’re everywhere.

Do these really work though? Most drain cleaners cause a chemical reaction to occur inside the drainpipe and such reaction can lead to other effects that can damage the structural integrity of the pipe. What’s worse is when you’ve used some liquid drain cleaners in hopes of fixing the problem, but the issue doesn’t get fixed, and the product ends up stagnant over the clog—all the while a chemical reaction stays concentrated in one area.

Also, consider the effect of drain cleaners on your health. Drain cleaners vary in terms of formulation but it’s undeniable that a great number of them contain harsh chemicals that can cause bodily reactions like burns, eye discomfort, and other adverse reactions.

Sometimes, drainage problems could point to bigger issues with the drainage system and for that, you might have to schedule drain unblocking and cleaning from companies like Fes247. Visit their website to also know about their other services like septic tank emptying Norfolk and more.
