Check for legionella

Water systems within your premises have not been in operation for some time or have been used at lower rates than in usual periods therefore legionella may have had time to grow in stagnant water within the pipework. 

Ahead of reopening, you are going to have to do some work to the water system to ensure it is safe to use. The level of work required will be determined by the type of water system in the premises.

Pest control

You must check your premises for pest infestation.

If you find evidence such as droppings or chewing, you must contact a reputable pest control company.
