DIY Drain Cleaners vs. Chemical Solutions

Wondering how homemade drain cleaners are better than store-bought products?

Most chemical drain cleaning products are more harmful than helpful when it comes to your pipe system. They can affect your indoor air quality moments after you use them, allowing dangerous fumes to spread throughout your home. The acid in some chemical solutions is also extremely dangerous if it comes in contact with your skin. Store-bought drain cleaners are notorious for causing severe skin burns and blisters. They also corrode your pipes over time, creating leaks and cracks.

On the other hand, DIY drain cleaners are less costly, safer for your pipe system and more eco-friendly! Using all-natural cleaners protects you and your family from any of the adverse side effects of chemical solutions as well.

Homemade Clog Removers

DIY drain cleaners are convenient. Especially when most of the ingredients are ones you may already have around your house! Here are some of the most popular DIY clog remover combinations:

  • Baking soda, salt and vinegar
  • Dish soap
  • Borax, salt and vinegar

Each of these solutions are relatively quick and easy to make at home. Just make sure to flush out your drain with hot tap water afterward to ensure that any stubborn remnants of the clog have washed away.

What Our Customers Are Saying

I Highly Recommend This Company!

I know about this company because my neighbors needed plumbing repair but of course the problem was located in my backyard. Blaine and Joe were fabulous! They did their very best to put my yard back as it was and to make sure my fence was secured so my dogs wouldn’t escape. And they were really kind and understanding of the situation. I highly recommend this company!

Professional and Friendly

I have had Hi-Tech repair two hot water slab leaks in my home this year. Both times they were prompt in scheduling the initial inspection and the actual repair, clear on the costs of the project, and what all work would be done. And on top of that, everyone has been very professional and friendly. I would 100% recommend them for any plumbing project you may have!
