Mr. Rooter raises World Health Day awareness through apocalyptic scenario

Mr. Rooter Plumbing celebrated World Health Day earlier this week by helping to raise awareness of the ongoing health concerns plaguing humanity today.

April 10, 2014

This year, the World Health Organization (WHO) focused on bringing to light the threats vector-borne illnesses pose to people around the world in recognition of World Health Day.

Mr. Rooter Plumbing celebrated World Health Day earlier this week (April 7) by helping to raise awareness of the ongoing health concerns plaguing humanity today.

Clean water and high standards for sanitation are what keep societies from apocalyptic-type horrors, like the plague and possible zombie uprisings. Join Mr. Rooter Plumbing in celebrating World Health Day, and keeping zombies at bay, by checking out this infographic.

And don’t forget to follow these steps to better protect against water-borne illnesses:

  1. Pick up a water filter for home faucets to guarantee contamination-free water.
  2. Don't let loved ones swallow water in swimming pools, hot tubs, rivers, fountains, or oceans.
  3. Avoid flushing non-degradable products; this damages sewage treatment processes and causes water pollution.
  4. When traveling, bring bottled waters along. But, don’t forget to recycle them!
  5. Turn off running tap water to prevent water shortages and reduce the amount of contaminated water needing treatment.
  6. Keep an eye on what goes down the drain. Don’t let paints or oils run down them; they’ll contribute to contamination!
  7. Try to use environmentally friendly household cleaning products and toiletries.
  8. Allow a plumbing professional to clean up any waste or sewage leaks in or around the home. Vector-borne illnesses often camp out in these messy conditions.
  9. Clean up litter in your community, and throw it away. If left alone, it’ll contribute to water contamination.
  10. Learn common symptoms for water-borne illnesses; education is the best form of protection. Share the wealth of knowledge with family and friends to help them protect themselves as well.

Following these 10 steps will help fight off apocalyptic horror, pushing water-borne illnesses further into the past.
