There are many things inside your home that can pose a health risk. Indoor air quality is a top concern. Surprisingly, even some plumbing issues can affect health. It is a good idea to work with a plumbing company that understands how important it is to pay attention to health when offering plumbing services.
One health aspect that most families think about is the quality of the water coming into your home. What you might not have thought about is that everything the water comes into contact with can alter the quality of the water. For example, homes built before the mid-1980s could have lead pipes. What might surprise you is that some faucets manufactured far more recently than that have lead components. There are also other pipe materials that can leach contaminants into your drinking water, so be sure to discuss the pipes you have in your home and whether it would be best to have your home re-piped to avoid problems that long-term exposure can cause.
Another thing to think about from a health standpoint is taking care to keep your home’s drains moving smoothly. A sewer or septic backup can create serious contamination inside your home. Consider regular drain cleaning to combat buildup and have a video camera inspection done every so often to ensure the main line hasn’t been compromised by roots or other problems.
