Test because PFAS stick around
You may have heard the abbreviation PFAS. PFAS (Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) are manufactured chemicals found in more than 5,000 products. For example, nonstick pans, carpets, waterproof clothing, makeup, sunscreen, shampoo, and shaving cream contain PFAS chemicals. Firefighting foam also contains PFAS. PFAS Testing & Filtration is important because PFASs don’t break down; they stick around and build up in the environment and our bodies.
PFAS don’t break down easily and remain in our bodies and environment for years. Meanwhile, studies have linked PFAS to certain cancers and endocrine disruption in humans.
PFAS testing & filtration
Unfortunately, drinking water often contains PFAS as it doesn’t break down. PFAS exposure unknowingly happens simply through drinking water. Luckily, testing and filtration can be used to remove PFAS from your drinking water.
How Fontus Can Help
