Reasons to Avoid Chemical Drain Cleaning Solutions to Unclog Your Drain
Of course, you want to clean out your drain so it doesn’t cause flooding or other problems in your bathroom. However, you’ll definitely want to avoid using chemicals in the draining process. Why? It can be hazardous to your health and your family’s health. If you’re unsure of what this means, here are some reasons why chemical draining may not be the best solution for your clog.
Chemical cleaners aren’t good for the environment. If you’re an earth friendly kind of person, realize that these chemicals drain into pipes and go into water where there’s sea life. You’d be doing your part in destroying the ecosystem. Also, you can be contaminating your own water that use for yourself for bathing or drinking purposes. This is not the only reason why you should stop using chemical draining products to unclog your sink or your tub.
Realize that your pets and your family are also affected by your usage of chemicals. These chemicals can easily become air born. If you have any small pets, you need them to stay away from these chemicals because they can cause serious damage to their eyes, ears, and even nose. You can easily inhale the fumes from these products and they can at least cause some serious sinus problems. It’s wise to avoid these types of items because of the carcinogens which can get in the air and really bring down the air quality of your home.
Another reason why you should avoid chemicals is because they can damage the finish of your drains and other fixtures. Remember, these chemicals are very strong and break through your pipes, which can cause leaks. Additionally, these chemicals need to be replaced. It can get very costly down the road. Instead of using chemical cleaners, why not invest in a plunger or a snake that can get things like hair and scum out of drains. It’s a lot more effective and it’s a lot cheaper.
Be careful using solutions to clear your drain. Try to do it using safer means and get a professional in a more serious manner.

Your Bathroom Remodel – Reasons to Hire a Plumber
When it’s time to remodel your bathroom, it’s always best to hire a plumber to do the job. There can be many kinds of plumbing issues that will come up that should only be handled by a professional. Hiring a professional plumber will only benefit you in the long run. Before they deconstruct your bathroom in preparation for the remodel, they will investigate and may find plumbing issues that need to be corrected before the remodel can actually take place. This not only prevents wasted time during the process, but will also keep future plumbing problems at bay by addressing them during construction.
Professional plumbers know how much time it takes to get the job done right, and they will schedule with you for the best time to do it. If you were to hire a simple handyman, you may find yourself several days into it with the project on hold while they contact professionals to fix troublesome spots. Plumbers already know who to contact and will schedule with them when to do work that they can’t do themselves, saving days of remodeling.
If you have been looking for just the right faucet or shower-head and coming up blank, a professional plumber may be just the person to turn to. They have better access to those items that make your bath distinctly yours and will have, on hand, a wider selection to choose from, or will be able to order it in faster than you can.
They are experienced in not only the functionality of the bathroom, but also in the design and layout. They can relocate key pieces of your bath, such as a shower-head or sink to change the overall appearance and functionality of the room. Perhaps your bathroom seems just too small, but with a simple design change would seem much larger and offer more storage space. A professional plumber can take care of that without a lot of headaches.
You can get an accurate quote from a plumber with virtually no surprises when you use a professional to help you plan, design, and remodel your bathroom. You just can’t get that when you do it yourself or hire just any old handyman. Don’t make it more time-consuming and expensive than it has to be. By doing it right the first time you will save money and be happier for many more years than you would be otherwise.
