Reduce Risks for Legionella and Scalding, and Ensure Compliance With ASHRAE, OSHA and Other Standards of Care

Armstrong will work with you to address critical issues in mechanical rooms, plumbing systems, hot water tanks and heaters—where incubation of Legionella bacteria most commonly occurs. We’re experts in helping you comply with industry regulations and Standards of Care, such as OSHA, ASHRAE, VA, World Health Organization and more.

Legionella and Legionnaires’ Disease

Legionella is most often found in hot water tanks and heaters, large plumbing systems, faucets and showers, decorative fountains and cooling towers (air conditioning units). The potable water systems in student housing, gymnasiums, stadiums, ice arenas, student recreation buildings, facilities buildings, research centers, ag research buildings, performing arts centers, dining halls and kitchens, aquatic centers, campus laundry, campus inns and hotels, fire houses, police stations, and other facilities are major sources of Legionella.
