Dangers of a Clogged Drain

Daily hygiene and care habits can take a hit to your home's plumbing. Oftentimes hair, product buildup, grease, and toilet paper/wipes are the main offenders of a clogged drain. It’s very important to keep your pipes flowing and free from all the debris.

If a clog is not properly dealt with, the clog could cause a serious break in the sewer line causing destruction to your home, and your pocketbook, in its path. A break in the sewer line is a main concern of plumbers, and it can be easily avoided by having your drains cleaned.

The Science Behind Drano & Why it Doesn’t Work

If a clogged drain isn’t promptly dealt with some very serious, and very expensive, issues can arise. People are often tempted to take care of clogs themselves by pouring harsh chemicals like Drano down the drain. That is not only most often very ineffective, it’s dangerous.

The science behind Drano and products alike is “to dissolve” the clog. That process takes time and can cause some major problems to your Millcreek home’s plumbing.

As these caustic chemicals sit in your pipes attempting to break down whatever is stuck, these chemicals are also damaging your pipes. Depending on the age of your home and the types of pipe throughout- Drano is eating away at the very pipe the clog is stuck inside.

Dangerous and ineffective. The clogged drain generally goes unclogged and instead creates a pipe full of poisonous, stagnant water.
