    Legionella Risk Assessment Service In London

    Any landlord or agent who rents out property to other people must carry out a Legionella risk assessment before they get them in the property to ensure they are safe from legionella bacteria. Most of the time legionella is found in lake water but its good to take safety measures on time to avoid legal and health problems.

    After the 2015 amendments its obligatory for a landlord to take care of the tenants and minimize the risk of exposure to legionella bacteria. However, If it is not controlled on time can lead to Pontiac fever and Legionnaires disease.

    You would hear many myths about the legionella bacteria such as that it is only found in lakes and rivers but it has been scientifically proven that sometimes man-made water systems could provide the ideal environment it needs to grow and spread rapidly.

    To avoid any unwanted situation you should contact a professional to carry out the legionella risk assessment test and ensure that water used in the property is hundred percent safe. Anyone carrying out this test should be fully experienced and skilled so that tenants’ health is not put on stake.

    Service team Legionella Risk Assessment and Water Hygiene Specialist with over 10 years of experience will carry out a detailed legionella test and prepares a report containing what needs to be done to stop growing of legionella bacteria.

    What is Legionella risk assessment

    Well, due to the simple reason that domestic properties are at low risk of Legionella attack, so apparently, you don’t need to have put a lot of effort in Legionella assessment. A professional is only necessary when you don’t have the required knowledge about the mechanism or, somehow you don’t feel comfortable doing it. In that case, the professional will carry out a detailed assessment. All you are required to do is just to keep the record of their findings

    Steps Involved In Legionella Risk Assessment

    Here are the steps involved in a complete legionella risk assessment. You can carry them out by yourself, or with the help of some professional:

    Identify the sources

    To find the solution to any problem, first of all we have to identify them. So what you or your professional consultant will have to do is to identify the hazards that can contribute to spreading the bacteria. In case if you are on your own, make a list of all the water systems in your property and how each of them can be a potential source to the spreading of legionella.

    Here is the precise list of whatever you’ve to check for

    • Is there any part in the system where the water temperature is between 20 to 45°C.
    • Whether some water is stored or re-circulated as a part of your system.
    • Are there any possible conditions for the bacteria to multiply?
    • Any sources of nutrients such as sludge, rust etc.
    • Water droplets, if they are spreading in a large area.
    • You can identify any of them easily on the sight!

    Implement control measures quickly!

    Once you’ve identified the sources or hazards, don’t waste a second to implement the control measures. But before that, check for things that are already in place and can withstand the conditions. However, if anything needs to be updated, don’t even give it a second thought.

    Control measures include the following things

    • Carrying out regular inspection and necessary maintenance procedures.
    • Monitoring water temperatures to make sure it doesn’t stay between 20-45°C.
    • Regular cleaning of water systems.
    • To keep unauthorized or unprofessional people away from water systems.
    • Setting the control parameters. E.g such as keeping hot water above 50-60°C.
    • Flushing out water systems prior to removing filthy or stagnant water.
    • Removal of useless pipes or any water-related accessories.

    Well, you can carry out many of these measures by yourself. However, if you don’t feel like you should be doing it, or have no proper knowledge about water systems. Then it’d be better if you consult a professional because doing so will keep you safe from any unnecessary troubles.

    Moreover, once the assessment and fixation is done, make sure you advise your tenants to follow the precautionary measures and do essential maintenance such as cleaning the showerheads regularly and to not do temperature adjustments by themselves

    Review

    Reviewing on regular bases is necessary in order to keep everything in control. Look for any changes in the property that can affect the risk assessment and then take the required steps to overcome it. The review should be carried out after every passing year.

    Here is some of the information you should consider collecting after each review

    • Changes to the water system or its way of use.
    • Any changes in the building that can affect the water installments.
    • Any changes to the use of buildings that is directly or indirectly related to water use.

    Advantages

    Here are some advantages of reviewing the system:

    • New information about risks and control measures comes available.
    • Indication of effective or non-effectiveness of control measures.
    • Getting knowledge about things that are needed to be repaired.

    Keep the records

    Last but not least, keeping the records is absolutely important. Not only will it help you legally if anyone gets affected with legionnaires’ disease even after the assessment is done, but it will also help you keep a check on the things that you’ve already repaired or have left to be repaired later. The record of Legionella risk assessment should be kept at least two to five years until a fresh Legionella risk assessment is done.

    The serviceteam process

    Choose your preferred method? If not now but certainly in the future you’re likely to have something in your home or premises that needs repairing or replacing? When you do we have various ways we can approach your job;
    • Serviceteam completes so many jobs during a year that we can often provide you with a fixed price for the works without attending
    • Other jobs require am enquiry to be raised, so we can compile a quotation. Any photos provided will help us to assess requirements.
    • If your project is large or complex, we will assign one of our qualified engineers to visit and prepare a detailed quotation.
    • Alternatively, you can select serviceteam’s Pay by Time option, certainly if you have an emergency or a “to do” list made up of one or several minor jobs. When on site our engineer will appraise the works required and give an indication of how long the works are expected to take. If we are unable to complete the works within the first visit due to the need for extra time or materials, then we will provide you with a fixed price quotation for the extended works for consideration and authorisation before proceeding.
    Enquiries can be logged through our website, email, WhatsApp or by calling 020 3538 7067.

    What happens next?
    When booking online the details of your job, including your preferred time slot/s will be sent to our scheduling department where within one working hour, scheduling will assign the appropriately qualified engineer to your job. You will also receive an alert via email confirming your appointment. You can view details of your job and see a photo of the engineer who will be visiting. If we are unable to accommodate your job at the time requested, due to high demands on our resources, we will be in touch with alternative dates.

    Good to know about your deal?
    If our tradesperson assesses your job and believes that the scope of the works need adjusting in terms of time/materials and price, they will seek you approval before the work begins.

    How are tradespeople verified?
    All our tradespeople have the relevant trade specific qualifications, have been rigorously screened and come under serviceteam’s insurance policies.

    How do we charge?
    At the point of booking your service, we will log your preferred payment details card number, etc. Payment will not be taken from your credit/debit card until the works have been completed, usually within 24 hours. Please note credit card transactions are limited to £150.00. maximum. A copy of your paid invoice and a job-sheet will be emailed to you when payment has been approved. Our dedicated Operations Team, based in London, are on call to discuss any current or future jobs as well as managing your project through to completion. If you prefer to pay with a different card to the one used when booking your appointment, please ask our trades person whilst on site to call the office and update your details.

    How do refunds work?
    You are eligible for a refund if you cancel within 14 days of booking or the job has not been started and is not within the cancellation time frame.

    What if I want to cancel the appointment?
    We understand that priorities and plans change, and you may need to rearrange/cancel your booking. Should this be the case please let us know as soon as possible so we can make the necessary alterations to our work schedules. If we don’t receive enough notice of your cancellation or appointment rescheduling within the terms outlined below, then there is a possibility you will be charged a cancellation fee.

    Cancellation windows
    (1.) A charge of £10.00 (ten pounds) will be payable if the service is cancelled within 24 hours. (2.) If the scheduled appointment is cancelled within 12 hours (or less) a 50% charge of the booking fee will be applied (3.) If the appointment is cancelled when engineer arrives at the property (on the doorstep - photos and times will be provided) and within our texted 3-hour time slot the full booking fee will become payable. None of the above charges are profit items and only contribute to the cost of late cancellation/lost business.

    Do I need to provide parking?
    As you know parking in and around London can be problematic and extremely costly (depending on the area) if a parking space can be reserved for our engineer it would be appreciated and help increase efficiency of the service provided (no feeding meters etc or mobile app updating). The quote we have provided does not include the cost of parking and/or congestion charge which will be added to the final invoice (if applicable). Please inform your personal account manager if any special parking instructions like parking permit/free parking can be provided. For properties on the rim of the congestion zone and it is not possible for our engineer to attend without entering/clipping the charge zone, we may need to add the charge to the final bill ? Please check with your personal account manager in advance of your appointment if you’re not sure?
