Chemical Drain Cleaners

Most San Mateo ask us why they should call in a residential plumber to clear the blockage in their pipes when they could simply buy a chemical drain cleaner and be done with the problem within minutes.

You should never, ever use a chemical drain cleaner to clear your drain blockages. The reason being that though they are convenient now, they are costly in the long run. They can break up whatever is in the way but they are also so corrosive that they can do serious damage to your pipes if used too frequently.
