Commercial & Residential Water Tank Cleaning Service
Prevent the proliferation of micro-organisms such as Legionella in water systems
Have you ever noticed dirty water coming out from your tap? While you would’ve let it run for a while till it clears out, you may not be aware that the same dirty water feeds all hot and cold taps.
Over time, cold water tanks and attic tanks become dirty with debris, limescale, sediments, mould, rust, and corrosion which builds ups a tough residue at the bottom. If your water tank is exposed without a lid, foreign bodies such as spiders, woodlice, and flies could end up being in your storage tank. These unwanted creatures create a perfect breeding ground for bacteria such as Legionella and E.Coli.
Celtic Water Solutions has amassed a wealth of experience on which we are able to draw when tackling a wide variety of challenging jobs for our many clients in Ireland.
Why do you need to clean and disinfect your water tank?
Water tank cleaning is paramount to ensuring hygiene and Legionella control, something to be taken seriously both residentially and commercially. If you are in a business where water is supplied for cooking, drinking or cleaning; it is a legal requirement to comply with Legionella risk assessment. The negative publicity due to health problems from dirty water tanks could pose risk to your business’s hard-earned reputation.
A key aspect of the control of Legionella in water systems is to maintain the cleanliness of all water systems. Regular monitoring of hot and cold water storage vessels and their systems is required to identify the presence of calcium carbonate scale, sediment, bio-films and signs of corrosion. Neglected water tanks and systems are high-risk areas for the proliferation of bacteria including Legionella pneumophilia, as they thrive in contaminated or stagnant conditions. When water droplets from these sources are disseminated and breathed in, this can result in the spread of Legionnaires disease.
It is equally important for homes to maintain the cleanliness of their attic tanks. If these tanks are not cleaned regularly, dirt and sediment can impact your pipes, plumbing fixtures and even the water filtration systems you might have in place already.
