AAL Property Solutions is delighted to provide Legionella Risk Assessments in Edinburgh, Midlothian and East Lothian.

What is legionella?

Legionella is a bacteria which can cause a disease called legionnaires disease. It is caused by the inhalation of small droplets of water suspended in the air from contaminated sources containing the bacteria.

Why is it important?

Legionella bacteria can be found in all hot and coldwater systems in residential properties where there is potential for growth. The main risk areas are when the bacteria can multiply and increase to dangerous levels and then spread through spray from showers and taps, dishwashers and washing machine pipes.
