Living in Florida has many benefits for its residents. But there are also some risks that we need to be prepared for. For example, did you know that Florida has some of the most contaminated water in the United States?
According to the National Toxicology Program (NTP), Florida has the second most polluted water in the country. This is due in part to pesticides and fertilizers used in commercial agriculture and residential yards. Consumption of contaminated water can lead to the transmission of diseases such as cholera, diarrhea, dysentery, hepatitis A, typhoid fever, and polio.
Do you know what you need to do to avoid being exposed to contaminated water? Property Care shares some tips to protect yourself and your loved ones. Take note!
The first precaution we recommend to improve the quality of water in your Florida home is to boil it. This will ensure that the liquid is safe to drink, as it is a more effective method of killing disease-causing microbes.
You don’t like the taste of boiled water? At Property Care, we recommend transferring the boiled water from one container to another and letting it sit for a few hours. You can also add a pinch of salt to each gallon or liter of boiled water.
It is also a good idea to use water filters or purifiers that remove harmful chemicals and materials. At Property Care, we offer efficient water filtration systems that are perfect for installation in your Florida home.
If you wish, we can install an alkaline water purification kit to serve your entire home and improve your overall quality of life. Contact us to get started!
You can also choose to buy bottled or packaged water that meets quality and safety standards. You must verify that the water is indeed in optimal conditions for consumption.
Don’t forget to review your Florida utility’s annual water reports to verify contamination levels and measures taken to improve water quality in your home.
At Property Care, we care about your comfort and health. That is why we offer a range of outstanding products and services to improve the water quality in your Florida home. Contact us to install them on your property today.
