The Plumbing, Heating, Cooling and/or Electrical industry has been putting more emphasis on and offering more advisement and knowledge on two more current, modern-day household concerns – Indoor Air Quality and Water Quality. This actually makes a tremendous amount of sense, as we spend so much of our lives indoors – and, in our home – and therefore, breathe in a lot of indoor air. Also, water is the one utility that we actually consume internally, often times from the tap. While it’s key to have working plumbing and a comfortable home – whether warmed up or cooled down, and also very important to have safe, performing electrical systems – today’s consumer should also be educated about and offered services for these two key areas.
Indoor Air Quality
We spend about 90% of our time indoors. The United States Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) studies have indicated that air pollution is often likely to be 2-5 higher inside the home rather than outdoors. Our homes are tightly sealed and insulated, designed to conserve energy. Therefore, the air that we breath indoors has been recycled over and over, trapping in and circulating unwanted elements including – allergens and particulates like dust, pollen, mold, and fungi – infectious agents like bacteria and viruses – and toxic compounds like carbon monoxide and pesticides. These bad indoor air qualities can worsen chronic health conditions, lead to new health risks and infections, and potentially cause grave illness and disease. Gillece is one of the leading companies that can help to improve the quality of your indoor air and remove unwanted, potentially dangerous characteristics from your home.
Water is the only utility that we actually take internally by drinking from the tap. Unsafe water utilized for all functional purposes including drinking can wreak havoc on your health – inside and out. The quality of your water is absolutely no longer something that should be overlooked or taken for granted. Chemicals in water, such as chlorine and disinfection byproducts, absorb quickly into your skin and hair, causing dryness, itchiness, and flakiness and have actually been associated with cancer. Also, impurities found in water like bacteria, mold, and viral microorganisms can cause severe illness. Bad water qualities such as these should be reduced and removed. Companies such as Gillece Services can help to maintain the integrity of your health by removing these detrimental elements from the water that’s pouring from your faucets, hose, shower head, etc.
