Showers should be cleaned and descaled on at least a quarterly basis or more frequently depending on the rate of fouling. Scale can trap nutrients, encouraging biofilm formation and so form a barrier to disinfectants.
Scale on tap outlets can trap nutrients, encouraging biofilm formation and so form a barrier to disinfectants.
We carry out the above services at many types of sites. And we cover the entire United Kingdom.
The guidance contained within The Approved code of practice (L8) states:-
“Service providers should also ensure that their staff and contractors are competent to carry out the task safely. They should be properly trained to a standard appropriate to the various tasks they perform, such as risk assessment, advising on water treatment measures, sampling or cleaning and maintaining water systems. The Legionella Control Association administers a Code of Conduct for organisations providing services to occupiers/owners of water systems.
Our engineers are highly competent and regularly receive refresher training including advanced Legionella awareness training to ensure any control measures are carried out in a safe and technically competent manner.
We believe that our record keeping, reporting and communication procedures are second to none. Any issues of non-compliance or concern observed on a visit would be reported the same day. Guidance and advice are always available.
We are members of the Legionella Control Association as recommended by the Approved code of practice (L8).
We are also members of the SAFE Contractor, Contractor Plus and Construction line Schemes.
