Monitoring and sampling of Legionella is an important part of Legionella prevention. Here at JC Water Services, we are proud to be able to offer this as one of our core Legionella services. Legionella is an extremely harmful bacteria that can lead to legionnaire’s disease and while the symptoms are similar to the flu, it must be identified and treated to prevent the potentially fatal form of pneumonia. Employees and visitors alike are prone to infection, but with proper monitoring and regular planned sampling, you can keep track of potential risks before they become an issue.
Using only UKAS accredited labs, we can sample the water in your systems and test for the presence of Legionella bacteria. If the tests come back positive for legionella bacteria, our team are on hand to help you manage the situation and can assist in helping you take the required preventative steps.
