What is Arsenic?

Arsenic is odorless and tasteless naturally occurring element that can be toxic to both humans and animals. Because it’s naturally occurring, it can enter water supplies from natural deposits in the earth or through farming and industrial practices. It is also used for treating wood products, in insect control, and car batteries.

How can Arsenic Enter my Home?

Arsenic can enter your home through your drinking water supply. It can be found in sand, gravel, and rock which means that any water collected from the ground can be contaminated. People who drink well water are at an even higher risk of coming in contact with contaminated water.

Professional testing can prevent poisoning and can be done quickly and efficiently. Benchmark Environmental Engineering uses cutting-edge technology and industry standards to deliver accurate results. With careful inspection and detailed analysis and reporting, we can help give you peace of mind about the quality of your home or work environment.

Who Is At Risk For Exposure?

Anyone that comes in contact with arsenic can be at risk for exposure. It can cause a variety of health problems and medical expenses. The health issues caused by arsenic poisoning are varied and extensive, and the price of testing is far less than the cost of potential long-term health risks.

The Potential Health Risks of Arsenic are:

  • Vomiting
  • Abdominal pain
  • Encephalopathy (which can affect the function and structure of your brain)
  • Diarrhea
  • Heart disease
  • Numbness
