The Dangers Of Over-the-Counter Drain Cleaners
No matter how tempting, do not pour liquid chemicals down your drain. They contain harsh chemicals that will erode your plumbing and pipes over time, which could cause a hefty repair bill down the road. They also pose a serious threat to the environment because of the poisons and toxins they contain. Fumes can release over time and may cause health problems if they enter your eyes or are inhaled. Cleaning drains with DIY methods is dangerous! Vancouver, Washington homeowners shouldn’t risk deep internal damage. Worn and older pipes are especially susceptible to these chemical cleaners.
