What is Legionella?
'Legionellosis' is the name for the three diseases that are caused by legionella bacteria. The three potentially fatal diseases that legionella cause are pontiac fever, lochgoilhead fever and worst of them all, legionnaires' disease which has the same symptoms as pneumonia. Legionella is a form of bacteria typically found in water which can be inhaled through small droplets of water found in aerosol or particles which are left once water has evaporated.
Every single property where water is circulated or stored requires a legionella test. Whether you own your home, live in a rental property, or at any commercial property - you legally require an in date legionella risk assessment. We assess every water system on an individual basis. The safe is completely safe and quick and could save you and other inhabitants of your property's lives. Carrying out this test ensures you are completely safe from the three lethal diseases that legionella causes. We will document our findings in accordance with current health and safety regulations.
Do I require a Legionella Test for my property?
In 2012, the Health and Safety Executive made it legal for every property whether it be residential or commercial to obtain a current legionella test for legionella control measures. Therefore, if there is an outbreak of legionella and you do not have an up to date test - you could be prosecuted. You must get the test carried out by a trained professional who has knowledge of the testing procedures and all of the correct insurance so that the test is risk free. All of our staff are fully trained and experienced, complying always with the approved code of practice.
