Why is Testing Your Home’s Water Important?

Mold Assessment Services - Water Testing services

It is crazy to think that the water in our homes can be contaminated. It is something you use every day, yet you may not know that what is in your water can be affecting your health. It can even affect your appliances and surfaces! Here are some things to be aware of how your water affects you.

Eliminate Health Risks

Many elements in water can affect your health and well-being. It is not only important for your friends and family, but your water source affects your plants, pets, and livestock too. In some cases, things like radon and other carcinogens can put you at risk of contracting cancer and other life-threatening diseases after long-term exposure. Many times you can contract bacterial illnesses if your water becomes contaminated. These illnesses can come on right away, but some can take days or even weeks to show symptoms. Certain water qualities can affect your skin and hair and cause symptoms like skin irritation, dry skin, dry scalp, and even hair loss.

Appliances And Cleaning

Did you know that your water quality testing can affect your appliances? If your sinks, bathtub, shower, or dishwasher has stains you can’t get rid of and seems to return, it may have to do with water quality. High iron, for example, can cause a brown slime to build up in your dishwasher and toilet. Making your job of keeping the home neat and tidy a bit difficult and time-consuming.

Track Any Changes

Whether you are dealing with city or well water, there is always the possibility that your water will come across contaminants. Well-water comes into contact with rocks, soil, and all sorts of potential threats regularly. If you are on a well-water system, it’s important to communicate with those around you or that share a well-water source with you as chances are they are susceptible to contamination if you are experiencing it, and vice versa. Most times, city-water users receive a notification when the water has become contaminated, but that is not always the case.

Water Quality And Taste

We all know drinking water is important for our health. It’d be unpleasant to get your recommended daily intake if the water you are drinking is lower quality or has a funky taste. It is also important to note that your water quality can directly affect your air quality. Since both are in constant contact with each other, it can create a vicious cycle between the two.Water Testing in Kendall FL

A mold problem can affect indoor air quality and the health of those who inhabit a property. If you have experienced water damage, plumbing leaks, or smell a musty odor, calling a professional for toxic mold testing can offer peace of mind. Air testing for mold determines if mold spores have spread and what type of mold is involved. Sometimes, visible mold is not present, but the familiar odor may ignite suspicion. A mold test can confirm this.
