How Plumbers Keep Americans Safe and Healthy

Believe it or not, your local plumbing company not only is helping your home’s internal functions, but they are also protecting your body’s internal health in some ways. This may sound like a bit of a stretch, but hear us out in this blog post.

Continue reading our quick, easy to understand list that our team has compiled of how plumbers are able to protect millions of Americans with their services. At Anacortes Plumbing, one of the top plumbing businesses in the Anacortes area, we take pride in keeping each of our customers safe and healthy with our work. In the words of our CEO Bohannan McKenzie, “What we do is far more than convenience; it is safety and health.”

Safe To Drink Water

Don’t underestimate the importance of safe water. As we help each of our customers with pipe issues, pipe installations, water filtration systems, etc., we want them to rest assured that their water is 100% safe for consumption. 

Still not buying into the idea that your water needs to be immaculate? Well, water-borne illnesses such as Hepatitis A, salmonella, and E. coli are known to thrive in low quality water. In some cases (weak immune systems, elderly, young children, etc.), these diseases can even result in death! Water contamination is not something to take lightly.

You Can Eliminate Mold

Want to know the one thing that mold thrives in? That would be moisture. 

Want to know the one thing moisture thrives in? That would be leaks.

Leaks are not only a pain in the neck, but they also can be a threat to your health. If a mold infestation is severe enough, the risk of getting a respiratory infection goes up significantly. It’s essential that you have a trained professional help with any installations, as well as check for any leaks. If you get the least bit suspicious about some mold growing, don’t hesitate to call your trusted plumber!

Waste Can Be Disposed Of Correctly

Did you learn about the bubonic plague pandemic from 1346-1353? This could have been easily avoided with a better plumbing system put in place. Most homes in this area did not use an efficient, modern plumbing system. Open ditch sewer systems were the norm during this era, and, as a result, the germs spread much easier and faster. In fact, the viruses actually came in more “direct” contact with people. The sewage had a tendency to leak into the ground making it easier to step into or touch. Even if someone didn’t touch or ingest the germs directly, bugs still could have easily touched the germs… and then bitten someone, landed on their food, and whole wide range of possibilities which we won’t get into 🤢. All of this to say, don’t undervalue the importance of a sanitary plumbing system!
