Avoiding Chemical Drain Cleaners: Safer Alternatives for Your Pipes
When faced with a clogged drain, the first solution that often comes to mind for many homeowners is reaching for a bottle of chemical drain cleaner. But while these products are easily accessible and promise a quick fix to your plumbing problems, they can come with a range of downsides – like damage to pipes or even causing injury when mishandled. As your go-to team for expert drain cleaning in Corona, CA, A.M. Plumbing and Rooter explores safer alternatives to chemical drain cleaners, providing you with more effective and environmentally friendly options.
Baking Soda and Vinegar
This combination is one of the most eco-friendly and efficient alternatives to chemical drain cleaners. Simply pour half a cup of baking soda into the clogged drain, followed by a cup of vinegar. Cover the drain and let it sit for 30 minutes. Then, flush it with hot water. The fizzy reaction helps break down minor blockages without resorting to harmful chemicals.
For more serious clogs, it’s best to call in professionals with the expertise to use various tools and techniques. Drain snaking involves inserting a flexible, long, coiled cable into a clogged pipe to break up and remove the blockage. The front end of the drain snake features a specialized tool or attachment, such as a corkscrew-like auger, cutting blade, or retrieval hook, which aids in dislodging and clearing the obstruction.
Your local drain cleaning company can also employ hydro jetting. This non-invasive cleaning method uses pressurized water streams strong enough to break apart and remove even the toughest clogs, leaving the pipe clean and free-flowing. Hydro jetting is a reliable solution for blockages deeper into the sewer line.

Here's What Our Customers Are Saying About Us.
This afternoon we found a leak after disconnecting our refrigerator. We called A.M. Plumbing. Their response time was excellent. They arrived to our house within an hour after calling them. When the plumber got to the house, he was able to rapidly diagnose and fix the problem. He was very professional, did a great job and they charged us a very reasonable fee. I would recommend A.M. Plumbing to anyone that needs plumbing repairs. Thank you, again, for a job well done!
I have called A.M. plumbing twice. Both times the service was excellent. He was able to talk to me about the problem and offer his recommendations. I found him to be trustworthy and reliable, which is what I am looking for in a plumber. I would highly recommend A.M.Dan Steele
Alex and his team are by far the easiest to work with! From the time I spoke with Kristen(sp?) to the time the job was complete they spoke to me like a person and not like I'm an idiot. I had a whole house repipe and an awesome never run out of hot water tankless water heater installed. They were professional and cleaned up after themselves. So glad to have found them on here and will be sure to pass along my experience with them to others. Thank you Alex and the team at AM, our family of 5 can finally have hot showers again!!
