Corroded pipes cleaning Stamford, CT

Chemical drain cleaners have become a popular go-to for homeowners with a clogged drain. While these chemicals can temporarily restore the flow of water in your pipes, they can have harmful effects when used regularly. The chemicals used in commercial cleaners need to be strong enough to eat through the clog, but in the process, they end up corroding your pipes as well. Read on as JNR Plumbing discusses more below:

1. They are Corrosive

Most chemical cleaners contain sodium hydroxide, sulfuric acid, or hydrochloric acid, which are all highly corrosive. Over time, these can eat away at your pipes and cause them to weaken and break down. In comparison, professional drain cleaning in Stamford, CT, does not involve the use of corrosive chemicals to remove any blockages in your drains.

2. They Can Cause Leaks

Over time, drain cleaning chemicals can also cause leaks in your pipes. The repetitive use of chemical cleaners can eat away at your pipes and create weak spots in your sewer lines. These can lead to cracks and leaks in your pipes. When not dealt with immediately, leaks can cause costly water damage. Prevent expensive repair bills by scheduling professional drain cleaning services.

3. They Can Cause Blockages

While drain cleaners are designed to help remove blockages, they can also create new ones. The chemicals used in these products can react with the substances and debris in your pipes such as grease or food particles and create a hard substance that can clog your pipes and lead to further damage. Avoid blocked pipes and costly problems by turning to a drain cleaning company for the proper solutions.

Rather than using chemical drain cleaners to deal with a clogged drain, we recommend turning to a professional like JNR Plumbing for lasting and reliable drain cleaning solutions. We use safe yet effective methods like drain snaking and hydro jetting to get rid of the blockage inside your pipes. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.
