One of the most common plumbing emergencies is a clogged drain. Homeowners looking for a DIY quick fix often turn to liquid drain cleaners to conquer a clog or slow drain rather than having a professional plumber properly address the issue. While liquid drain cleaner seems like an easy fix, the upfront money and time saved are short-lived.

Learn the complications and dangers of using liquid drain cleaners and the proper way to handle a clogged sink. Frymire Home Services has been offering high-quality plumbing services to the Dallas, TX, area since 1950. Our team is ready to answer your call 24/7 to give you the prompt repairs you need so you can leave the liquid drain cleaner at the store!

Contact Frymire Home Services at (972) 620-3600 to schedule a plumber to inspect and evaluate your home drains.

Liquid Drain Cleaners and Your Plumbing System

Well-intended homeowners innocently reach for the liquid drain cleaner to rid their homes of an unpleasant clog without realizing how it damages their home’s plumbing system. The ingredients that comprise liquid drain cleaners are harsh on your plumbing system’s internal and external components. The chemical reaction that these chemicals produce causes irreversible damage to your plumbing materials. Liquid drain cleaner chemicals accelerate the deterioration of porcelain, plastic, and PVC, leading to cracks, leaks, pipe corrosion, burst pipes, and premature repiping needs. A burst pipe can cause expensive, permanent damage to your home and property.

Liquid Drain Cleaner and Your Health

While your plumbing is one of the most important systems you maintain, nothing is more important than your personal health system. The chemicals found in drain cleaners are harmful to your eyes, skin, and lungs. Further, direct exposure to liquid drain cleaner must be treated by a medical professional. The team at Frymire Home Services can tell you from experience that this is NOT a risk you want to take.

Liquid Drain Cleaner Doesn’t Offer Lasting Results

While liquid drain cleaners can temporarily address a clog, they wipe out the good bacteria that work to keep drains free and flowing from sitting organic material. The lack of good bacteria at play leads to larger clogs later. Additionally, drain cleaner stops bacteria from naturally reducing the source of a reoccurring clog. Unclogging a drain permanently without the clog building back up requires professional services from highly trained plumbers. Relying on liquid drain cleaner repeatedly leads to more damage to your plumbing and more expensive repairs down the line.

5 Reasons You Should Choose Frymire Over the Competition

July 09th, 2021

Simple chart showing the differences between Frymire Home Services and other home service companies.

Let’s address the giant elephant in the room: We know we’re one of the hundreds of home services companies in Texas. Your respect and your business are not guaranteed but earned. If you’re wondering why you should choose us above all your other options for your HVAC, plumbing, and air quality needs, we can tell you. Here are just a few reasons why we think we’re the right choice for you and your home:

1. Our technicians know how to work with a home, not just its pipes or ducts.

Most companies hire niche specialists who only know how to do one or two jobs. In contrast, we search for versatile generalists and train them in all aspects of heating, cooling, air quality, and plumbing. This long-term investment in our employees and their training means they stick around longer and get very, very good at what they do. It also means they’re trained to think about how issues in a house, such as poor air quality, may be related to a plumbing issue, like a leak. This professionalism and holistic view of your home are all to your benefit.

2. We have a lot of experience under our tool belts.

Frymire Home Services has been in business for over 60 years. In fact, each of our veteran managers has an average tenure of 25 years, meaning they’ve gotten to know every community in Dallas and Fort Worth as if it were their own. With a long history like ours, the Frymire team has truly seen it all and can tackle any job with confidence and professionalism.

3. Our commitment to excellence is present in everything we do.

The Frymire Home Services company motto is simple yet earnest: “A Higher Degree of Comfort.” We believe that you deserve the best possible service when it comes to home and hearth. Our commitment to putting this belief into practice has made us a preferred provider throughout Dallas, TX, and the surrounding communities for over three generations. This level of service looks like fitting you in for an emergency furnace inspection at short notice, checking and double-checking your air conditioner during your maintenance visit, investigating your air quality problem, or more.

4. Our services are financially accessible and tailored to your needs (no more, no less).

You may be thinking by now, “Yes, this all sounds great – but it also sounds like it will cost me an arm and a leg.” Not so. We’re in the business of helping people, and that means offering affordable financing options, free estimates, fair prices, and superior workmanship no matter your budget.

5. We take our 100% satisfaction guarantee seriously.

If you’re not 100% satisfied, then the job is not 100% done. Plain and simple. This guarantee lowers the risk to you and holds us accountable to the standards we set.

But don’t take our word for it. Check out some of our reviews from real customers.
