Have you ever thought of unblocking drains by on your own without the hassle of calling in an emergency plumber? Although this might seem like a safe option, you may not have realized how dangerous this could be and the horrendous effects it could have.

One of the biggest dangers of doing it on your own is due to not using the drain cleaning chemicals correctly. Many of these tragic accidents involving drain cleaning products are caused by the incorrect or unintentional use of harmful chemicals that can burn the skin. Chemical burns are very harmful because they continue to burn the skin until they are washed away.


The chemicals in drain cleaning products were intended to remove the grease and build up that causes blocked drain, so you can only imagine the horrible result that the skin will develop to chemical touch. Which is why many chemicals have a significant list of health and safety warnings that are unfortunately overlooked and cause accidents. Remember to always use safety gear such as gloves and eye protection when working with any kind of cleaning cleaning chemicals.
