Don't ruin your pipes with chemicals!

Drain cleaning solutions are intended for the consumer who hopes to avoid having to contact a professional when things get stuck. There are a few questions you should be asking before exposing the people you care about to these chemicals. Are they effective, are they safe and will they save you money in the long run?

If you have ever purchased a drain cleaning solution, you will probably agree that the results almost never match the promises. Companies spend thousands of dollars on advertisement to convince you that their product is the most effective.

After going through two or three different cleaners in an attempt to get one that works you might stumble on one that will offer partial results. Unfortunately, the problem never really goes away until your plumber takes a closer look at the cause of the blockage and corrects it for you.

If consumers knew exactly what made up a draining solution, they would probably cross the street if they saw it coming. The chemical makeup of a drain cleaning solution can seriously affect the fixtures it comes in contact with.

The biggest issue that consumers should be concerned with is the one marked poison, or sodium hydroxide. Although this ingredient is not found in every cleaner, consumers may already have it in their cleaning closet. In addition to the dangers of accidental consumption, inhaling the aroma may also place the user at risk. Some symptoms include swelling of the throat, labored breathing, vomiting, affected vision and eventual collapse.

Considering the fact that these chemicals can cause immediate and long-term damage to the plumbing they should be avoided at all costs. Add that to the fact that human beings are being exposed to severe health risks just by coming in contact with cleaning solutions and suddenly a clear picture is being painted.

This complication only multiplies when you add small children and family pets to the possibility of exposure. Cleaning solutions are risky and ineffective, which makes them dangerous and a poor choice as a substitute for a professional plumber.
