Legionella is a harmful disease. Unlike most diseases, this is not a contagion that spreads from one person to another. Instead, the legionella bacterium is naturally found in warm water. The disease is extremely common throughout the United Kingdom and affects thousands of people every year. The number one cause of this disease is improperly cleaned water tubs and infected plumbing systems.
If the water- holding equipment is not cleaned properly, the legionella germ may infest it. This can lead to a special type of pneumonia, known as legionellosis. It is also commonly referred to as the Legionnaires’ disease. Over time, legionella can infest virtually any water- holding equipment, ranging from geysers to hot tubs. That’s why you need the help of a professional legionella treatment specialist.
