Why Professional Drain Cleaning is Better Than Chemical Cleaners and Uncloggers

Monday, August 14th, 2023

We’ve all seen commercials for drain cleaning chemicals before. They show abhorrent 3D mockups of what they want you to believe goes on in your pipes in an effort to simplify everything about your drains.

Chemicals don’t fix problems; they act as a short-term remedy for the immediate problem (clogs), but fail to provide a viable long-term solution. Most of the time they cause damage to your drains that result in bigger issues down the road. Here’s why these chemicals aren’t a proper replacement for professional drain cleaning services in Bellingham, WA.

How to Prevent Drain and Sewer Line Problems

Monday, August 22nd, 2022

If there is any problem that is pretty common among homeowners, it’s the problem of a clogged or dirty drain. Whether your drains are sluggish, completely backed up, or have a lingering odor to them, it’s not something you can ignore. 

Of course, you might think the answer to addressing these troublesome drains is that bottle of store-bought liquid drain cleaner you keep on hand from the store. Unfortunately, however, this might only exacerbate the problem. Ironic as it is, the materials used in these “drain openers” only dissolve some types of clogs, and can actually create blockages of their own. 

Additionally, the chemicals used in these “solutions” are caustic and can actually start corroding your drain pipes. Lastly, if you have multiple drains clogged, this is actually pointing to a problem much deeper–with your sewer line–and store-bought drain cleaners aren’t going to do much, if anything, for this kind of problem. Read on to learn when you should call on the pros for your drain and sewer issues.
