While many facilities are focusing on precautions for preventing the spread of COVID-19, they also need to be proactive when it comes to reducing the risk of Legionella.
Poorly maintained cooling towers are an ideal place for Legionella to flourish due to accumulated algae, mold or bacteria mixing with the tower’s warm water. Goodway Technologies recommends the following preventive-maintenance steps to reduce the risk of Legionella developing in a facility.
- Inspect towers monthly.
- Clean tower basin surfaces.
- Clean the fill.
- Treat circulating water.
- Drain, clean and disinfect annually.
