Legionella Surveys and Remedial Advice
Legionella causes the potentially fatal Legionnaire’s disease, and can manifest in any man-made hot and cold water system. We will conduct a rigorous assessment to make sure your property is not at risk, as well as advising on how to quickly tackle any signs of contamination.
If you are a duty holder, as defined in section 4 of the Health & Safety at Work etc. Act 1974, it is your legal responsibility to make sure your property poses no danger of a legionella outbreak. We will carry out a full survey and assessment, taking into account all factors specific to your water system.
You will be made fully aware of any potential legionella risks, and given the exact advice on how to fix the issue. You can rely on us to make sure that anyone using the building is completely safe, and you are legally protected by following all required laws associated with this area.
Where Does Legionella come from?
Outbreaks of legionella occur from exposure to bacteria growing in purpose-built systems where water is maintained at a temperature high enough to encourage growth.
People contract Legionnaires’ disease by inhaling small droplets of water (aerosols), suspended in the air. Risk factors include:
- Water temperature in all or some parts of the system being between 20-45 °C
- Stems that create and disperse breathable e.g. aerosol created by a cooling tower, or water outlets
- Water being stored and/or re-circulated
- Existence of deposits that can support bacterial growth e.g. rust, sludge, scale, organic matter and biofilms.
