Legionella in Your Water?

In the modern world, many buildings are still using older water systems or rely on plumbing installations that are not up to current safety standards. In old buildings, such as apartments complexes, businesses, and even some medical facilities, the water system they use hasn’t changed since the building was first created. For others, particularly those that have gone through a recent period of disuse, it is very possible for water to become contaminated or otherwise polluted through situations such as stagnation or leakage.

In these cases, it is possible for dangerous bacteria or mold to cause severe health problems for those who rely on it without them even realizing it. One example, which can lead to respiratory or kidney failure, comes from Legionella Pneumophila. This deadly bacterium, which thrives in dark, stagnant water, which can be found in old pipes or water systems, can be lethal to those with weakened immune systems such as the very young or the elderly. It can cause Legionnaire’s disease, which can cause pneumonia and need immediate medical attention to minimize any potential health risks.

For this reason, among many other possible dangers caused by contaminated water, many testing facilities offer water testing to detect these kinds of contaminants. Nova Biologicals has had a strong focus on providing water testing to both businesses and individuals alike since its founding, and has served people all over the United States of America, and would be glad to help in any way it can regarding possible threats of water contamination.
