Legionella: The Facts

Legionnaire’s disease is a lung infection acquired by inhaling contaminated aerosol or water droplets suspended in air. 

The most vulnerable are the sick, elderly, those with impaired immunity, and smokers. The symptoms can be severe, and without timely treatment the disease may be fatal.

The main areas of risk for building owners – in healthcare, hotel, office, retail, or education – are the air conditioning cooling towers and the potable and heated water distribution systems, where tanks or piping dead legs increase risk.

QED Environmental Services develops water quality risk management plans, tailored to customers’ requirements.

Our staff are experienced in responding to outbreaks of infection which require advanced testing, diagnostic and remediation activity, as well as liaising with authorities and regulators.
