Our certified industrial hygienists will conduct an inventory of building water systems to identify sources of Legionella, including at least:Our work is consistent with the ASHRAE standard, but goes further with validation of the control measures by testing of water systems with analyses by an accredited laboratory. We will interpret results and recommend a course of action. Testing of water systems seems to be required for stemming this stubborn but controllable public health problem.
