There are a number of issues that can affect the taste, smell, and quality of the water coming into your Northern Virginia home, and while some may be little more than a nuisance, others can affect the health and safety of your family. Whether your home has hard water or your water has a high concentration of iron or other contaminants, water treatment services from M.E. Flow can help to restore balance to your water by removing unwanted toxins and minerals using a variety of products and services.
Common Water Issues
If you experience any of these issues, call M.E. Flow for a free water analysis to determine the source of the problem:
Hard water is caused by an excess of calcium, magnesium, and/or iron in the water. Signs you have hard water include dry skin and hair, spots on dishware, and mineral deposits on fixtures and taps.
Cloudy or murky water is caused by an abundance of suspended particles in the water and is usually caused by turbidity due to construction, runoff, or storm activity.
Chlorine Taste or Smell
Chlorine is a common disinfectant used to eradicate bacteria in water, but in higher concentrations, it can produce an unpleasant taste or odor.
A metallic taste or odor, rotten egg smell, earthy odors, or other issues with water’s quality can make it undrinkable and leave a lingering smell on dishes and laundry.
While you may not be able to see them, bacteria and viruses frequently make their way into the water supply, and in high enough concentrations they can lead to gastrointestinal issues or illness.
Our skilled technicians will analyze your water and make suggestions for how to improve the taste and quality. Call (703) 777-2311 to get started or contact us online today!
