Water from a faucet Water from a faucet


Legionella can be found in spray from showers and taps and even in dishwashers, although the risk of Legionnaires’ disease in a domestic property is rated as low risk.

Flood advice Flood advice


Be aware of flood hazards no matter where you live or work, but especially if you are in low-lying areas or near water. Even very small streams or low-lying ground can flood.

Asbestos Asbestos


If asbestos is disturbed, it can release fibres into the air. That’s why we carry out asbestos surveys before refurbishment or building work is carried out in your home, so you must allow us access.
