They're Ineffective

Store-bought drain cleaners are not as thorough as they need to be to, and they don't do an excellent job at removing obstructions from your drains. They're made of corrosive substances whose purpose is to dissolve whatever is clogging your pipes. However, once a small portion of the obstruction has been dissolved, the chemical solution will be able to continue flowing through your pipes, so a majority of the obstruction is left behind.

When you rely on our professional Ann Arbor drain cleaning professionals, we'll be able to accurately locate and thoroughly remove anything that's clogging your drains and pipes. You with professional drain cleaning services in Muskegon, we'll find all of the obstructions in your pipes, then remove them completely. With store-bought chemicals, the clog isn't completely removed, and it will continue to collect particulate matter and lead to a cycle of of slow and clogged drains.

They're Toxic and Corrosive

The other main problem with store-bought drain cleaners is that they're highly toxic, which can make them unsafe to have in your home. They're usually made of very unsafe materials like acids, caustics substances, and solvents (i.e., bleach, lye, peroxides, potash, and nitrates). If any of these substances are swallowed or come into contact with skin or eyes, they can cause severe injuries.

Unlike our drain cleaning services, store-bought cleaners are also very corrosive, which means that if you're using them repeatedly over time, they can do some serious damage to your pipes.
