Bio-Clean Treatment V.S. Draino

Saturday, October 21st, 2017
You’ve been there before: standing in the shower, up to your ankles in water, praying this isn’t what you think it is. Your drain’s clogged again and you really don’t want to deal with it.
Depending on how large and how hairy your family is, this can be a monthly issue. And it’s a pain to fix. Even if you manage to get ‘draino’ onto your shopping list, and even if you do manage to find the time to perform an exorcism on your drain, you’re going to be faced with the overwhelming guilt of pouring raw chemicals down the drain. And after the running around, the exorcism and the guilt storm, your only prize is going to be pulling up a disgusting shampoo covered hair creature out of your drain. This entire process could be avoided simply and cleanly with Bio-Clean Treatment. There are a couple key reasons why Bio-Clean tops chemical cleaners, like Draino, every time:
1.) Save Your Pipes
Chemical Cleaners, like Draino, may be corrosive and harmful to your plumbing. These chemicals are made to break up organic products, but in the process they also damage the pipes in your walls. Bio-Clean harnesses the natural power of bacteria to attack only organic materials, leaving your pipes unharmed. This can save you money in the long run because your plumbing will not be damaged by chemicals!
2.) Clean everywhere…even behind your ears!
The plumbing behind your walls is full of pipes twisting and turning. Rarely if ever do pipes head directly down. Chemical Cleaners must adhere to the laws of gravity, therefore they only get the gunk that is in the path of least resistance. Bio-Clean, however, goes wherever there is organic waste to be eaten up. This gives your pipes a fuller, deeper cleaning!
So, what’s it going to be? Another time of pulling up some chemical drenched hair terror out of your drain? Or are you going to go for the clean, efficient, non-nausea inducing solution: Bio-Clean Treatment.
