Legionella

The risk of contracting legionella in your home is very low but here are some simple steps that you should take to help protect you and those in your home:

 Turn your shower on and run for a few minutes at least once a week, preferably more often than this, to flush out stale water;

 Dismantle, scrub and de-scale your shower heads and shower hoses at least once every 3 months;

 Turn on every hot and cold water tap throughout your home at least once a week and let the water run for a short time.

If you would like more advice on this matter please contact Lyndsay or Anna at the office.
