Is Chlorine Behind Your Allergies?
Deer Valley Plumbing specializes in all types of residential plumbing services. If you’ve noticed some troubling systems, exposure to chlorine may be the cause. Now is a good time to have our plumber check the chlorine levels in your home’s water and install a water softener or filtration system.
You can’t be allergic to chlorine, which is a chemical element. However, you can be sensitive to it or have a reaction if you breathe the gas. Sometimes, what people think is a chlorine allergy is actually asthma or some other allergy. Our plumbers can help you with water purification services if you think there’s too much chlorine in your home’s water.
Reactions to Chlorine
Some people have a strong reaction to chlorine. You may get itchy or develop hives. This condition is called irritation dermatitis. It’s caused by a hypersensitivity to chlorine. We can set you up with water conditioning services to reduce your home’s chlorine level.
If you’re hypersensitive to chlorine, you may be unable to do basic activities, such as wash dishes by hand. That’s because the chlorine in the water dries and irritates your skin. A water filtration system removes the chlorine so that you can get back to regular routines.
Chlorine has a strong odor. That odor might make your nose run or get stuffy or your eyes water. The odor can also irritate your throat. With our water softener installation service, you won’t have to deal with these symptoms anymore.
At Deer Valley Plumbing, we’re here to help with dependable water treatment services. You can count on us to take a sample of your home’s water and accurately measure its chlorine level. Call us or fill out the online form to schedule your appointment.
