Care homes accommodate some of the most vulnerable people in our society. They should provide a safe and hygienic environment for those who live and work in them.
The elderly and unwell are some of the most likely people to contract Legionnaire’s disease, should they be exposed to Legionella bacteria. Legionella testing for care homes should be taken seriously, with regular testing and continuous monitoring.

The importance of Legionella testing for care homes
Legionella poses a health risk to people wherever there’s a water system, particularly where water vapour is present. Washing facilities, cleaning facilities, drinking water, baths, and showers are some of the places where harmful Legionella bacteria can be found.
Your residents and employees need total protection from the risks of Legionella bacteria. This means regular testing and monitoring, carried out by trained water engineers.
