Are chemical drain cleaners safe?

It depends. Some cleaners are very strong and can be corrosive; newer drains can handle them but older drains might have trouble. Also, there are many different types of drain cleaners that might react differently, so it’s important that you read the labels. While chemical cleaners are safe for clogged drains, they can be dangerous to people, so be sure that you never get them on your skin or in your eyes. The most important thing is to read the label. Most all chemical drain cleaners are safe when used as directed. Alternatively, of course, you could just leave it to the professionals.
