What is Legionella?
Legionella can be acquired through inhaling legionella bacteria from tiny droplets of water often identified in aerosols, or from particles which are left behind after water has evaporated. Legionella is a bacteria found in water which can cause three potentially fatal diseases which are collectively known as 'Legionellosis'. These three diseases are pontiac fever, lochgoilhead fever and the most dangerous, which can cause symptoms of pneumonia; legionnaires' disease.
Forward Plumbing assess your water system in any property; whether it be commercial or residential, to ensure you, your co-workers, family or the general public are kept protected from these three fatal diseases that legionella causes. This test legally has to be carried out on any premises where water is stored or recirculated, whether it be your home, a rental property, your work office, a doctors surgery, a nursing home or a school. When we complete your legionella test, you will receive the results via legitimate documentation in accordance with health and safety regulations.
Why do I need a Legionella Risk Assessment in my Lewes Property?
In 2012, the Health and Safety Executive ruled that legionella testing must be completed not at just commercial properties, but at residential properties too. If you do not have an up to date legionella risk assessment - you could be prosecuted if an outbreak occurs. For safety and insurance reasons, it is imperitive that this test is conducted by a qualified expert.
