Polyfluoroalkyl Substances, or PFAS for short, are chemicals that are widely used in manufacturing across the globe. Through use, they are leached into the environment as a byproduct that can be found in our drinking water, food, and more. What’s more, while the exact effects on humans is still little understood, animal testing has indicated that high concentrations of PFAS exposure can lead to liver damage, reproductive harm, and thyroid issues. Many states, including New Hampshire, have identified drinking water sources that are contaminated with PFAS and have suggested that all residents have their private wells tested.
The best way to protect yourself is to start with a professional water sample. The water sample is then sent off to a state accredited lab, which will provide you with a complete panel of results. With Heritage, our water quality experts will help guide you through these results, and determine if your home could benefit from a filtration system designed for your exact needs.
The good news is that a properly designed and installed treatment system can mitigate or eliminate PFAS concentrations in your water. With the water quality experts at Heritage, we can make this process as painless as possible, with most installs completed within 48 hours of approval.
