Legionella risk assessment
We offer a thorough, expert Legionella risk assessment service to landlords in London and the South East.
Being a landlord comes with a great deal of responsibility. If you’re a landlord, you need to ensure that your property is suitable and safe for your tenants. One important legal responsibility for landlords is to make sure tenants are not at risk from Legionnaires’ Disease.
Legionella bacteria can thrive naturally in water systems and damp areas, so it’s a good idea to get these checked every once in a while. At Build and Maintain, we offer a Legionella risk assessment service to determine whether there is a legitimate risk of Legionella in a property.
Having a Legionella risk assessment carried out can give you peace of mind. After all, failing in your responsibility to your tenants can be a serious offence, even leading to imprisonment in extreme cases. It’s always better to err on the side of caution!
What is Legionnaires’ Disease?
Legionairres’ Disease is an illness that is very similar to pneumonia. It’s also a very serious illness, and can be deadly. In fact, Legionnaires’ Disease has quite a high fatality rate, so it’s absolutely worth taking the time to ensure that a property is safe. You can become infected with the disease by breathing in droplets of infected water, especially if you have a weak immune system. Legionnaires’ Disease cannot be passed from one person to another, and outbreaks are usually contained to a single case.
We’re happy to carry out a comprehensive Legionella risk assessment on any of your properties, and proud to carry out a reliable service. We have years of experience to rely on, and can ensure that your property is safe. Just give us a call.
