Your Friendly Reminder to Avoid Chemical Drain Cleaners

Monday, October 21st, 2019

People always call us after they’ve used chemical drain cleaners to unclog their slow drains, panicking because the cleaners have somehow made the problems worse. Hopefully, with this blog post, we can address this issue before you’ve gone out and wasted your money on something that could mess up your pipes.

Processes from hydro-jetting to video camera pipe inspection give us the tools necessary to get the job done without harming you, your plumbing, or the environment.
