First of all, drain cleaning isn’t as simple as most people think. People will try to clear blockages or roots using harmful chemicals or snakes. These chemicals, when used repetitively, build up on top of a clog and corrode the pipe itself. Another issue is the improper mixing of chemicals that can create toxic fumes. Also, chemicals can also be dangerous if improperly stored in the home. Finally, it can burn skin and irritate the eyes or lungs.
Dangers of Drain Cleaning Yourself
Improper use of plumbing snakes or augers for drain cleaning and clearing can be frustrating or even damaging. Repeatedly forcing a snake into a pipe without a proper understanding of a drain system will cause damage to your pipes. Corrosion or leaks can occur when a pipe is damaged.
