Avoid the Quick Plumbing Fix!

Liquid drain cleaner will provide you with a quick fix but will leave you with major problems in the long run. Taking the extra step to call a professional will make all the difference down the line. Nebrasky has 30 years of experience when it comes to clogged drain pipes and if you ask us, this is why you should put the bottle down and pick the phone up:

Toxicity: Drain cleaners contain unhealthy chemicals that, when inhaled, can cause damage and discomfort to you and your family. Even after the liquid is down the drain, its fumes stick around.

Damaging to the environment: Residual liquid left in bottles of drain cleaner can end up going from a landfill into water. Due to the previously stated high toxicity level, this can poison wildlife.

Damaging to your home: A key ingredient in drain cleaner is hydrochloric acid. When exposed for long enough, this chemical can eat away at any given surface, including a pipe or countertop.

Potentially ineffective: Homeowners often assume their drain isn’t clearing because of a simple clog, but oftentimes there is a more deep-rooted issue at hand. If you have a broken pipe or sewer line, using a harsh chemical won’t resolve the issue.

Only an experienced professional can assess your pipes and come up with an effective solution. Nebrasky has 30 years of experience and can help you with any of your plumbing, heating and cooling needs. Give us a call at 800.989.0299 to schedule your appointment today!
