Legionella Assessments

Reliable Testing from an Environmental Consulting Team

Each year, it’s estimated that anywhere from 56,000 to upwards of 113,000 people are exposed to Legionella pneumophilia, a type of bacteria that causes a severe and often-lethal form of pneumonia known as Legionnaire’s Disease. The bacteria can be found in both potable and non-potable water systems, which means the disease can be found everywhere from standard restroom facilities at your office to even hospital drinking water taps.

Are you at risk for this disease in your home or business? It can be hard to tell without the assistance of a professional environmental consulting services team that has the tools and knowledge to properly conduct thorough and effective testing. At RPF Environmental, providing accurate results quickly has been the name of our game for over 25 years. We offer cost-effective environmental testing services that can help you determine if your water supply is contaminated with Legionella bacteria and recommend appropriate steps to take to eliminate the issue and make sure your water sources are safe and secure once again. We understand how important it is to get accurate results when dealing with such a dangerous disease, and we’ve earned a reputation of trust by providing outstanding services for more than 10,000 projects over our company’s history.

Legionnaires’ disease is on the rise in the United States. RPF Environmental helps its customers with testing for Legionella bacteria in water and development of water management plans. Although it is a specific concern for healthcare facilities, other large buildings with air-conditioning units are also susceptible. Legionnaires’ disease is a serious type of pneumonia people can contract when they inhale contaminated water (in mist form typically) from building water systems that are not adequately maintained.

Legionella occurs naturally in freshwater environments, like lakes and streams; however, it can become a health concern when it grows and spreads in human-made building water systems such as faucets, HVAC cooling towers, hot tubs, decorative fountains, hot water tanks, and large plumbing systems. Legionnaires’ disease is fatal for approximately 1 in 10 people who contract the disease. Typically, an initial facility walkthrough and preliminary sampling is a good starting point for most customers.
