So far, we think that the waste generated from industrial waste is the main cause of environmental pollution. It turns out that along with increasing population growth, domestic waste (households) actually become the biggest contributor first call restoration crew. Not only solid waste such as plastic waste, cardboard boxes to food waste that is seen floating on the surface of the river, the accumulation of large amounts of domestic liquid waste also contributes to river pollution. Waste that is not handled properly can cause health problems for residents of the house. At this time, we really need help from the water damage restoration service to prevent liquid waste from settling around the house.
There are three types of wastewater generated from households in general:
• First, gray water is liquid waste that does not come from human waste, can be from bath water, water used to wash clothes or dishes that contain chemicals such as soap and detergent, and waste cooking oil.
• Second, black water is waste originating from human waste.
• Clearwater, which is the result of dripping from AC and refrigerator.
Well, what steps should we take to minimize household wastewater so as not to burden the environment? Follow the following tips:
1. Use household cleaners that are environmentally friendly
– Choose detergents that are environmentally friendly (biodegradable), this detergent usually contains a little foam and the used water can be used again to water the plants.
– Clean the toilet with natural ingredients such as vinegar, baking soda or lemon. Avoid cleaning the toilet with chemicals, because it will inhibit the growth of decomposing bacteria in the septic tank, causing the septic tank to fill easily.
– Clean the bathroom more often so that dirt does not crust and reduce the use of strong cleaning agents that contain chemicals that are not environmentally friendly
2. Apply water-saving behavior that will automatically reduce wastewater discharges.
• Bathing using a shower or dipper of water instead of soaking in the bathtub because in addition to wasteful of water also causes more waste
• Washing dishes with a basin rather than under a running tap, the amount of soap waste can be minimized
• Wash clothes in sufficient quantities (at least 15 strands), wash in amounts that are a little more wasteful of detergents and water which in the end wastes more and more wasted
• Clothes soaking water that still contains clean power can be used again to wash slippers and kitchen towels.
3. Planting gutters with water plants that can absorb pollutants, such as purple flowers, water sticks, brown flowers, water jasmine, and water sticks
4. Create a simple WAL or Wastewater Treatment System at home to handle non-black water. With this system, two tanks are needed, they are collecting tanks and infiltration tanks. In the collector tub, given a space that is useful as a catcher of garbage, sand, and oil.
