Has your building been shut down or used less frequently during COVID-19?

May 05, 2020

Stagnant or standing water can cause conditions that increase the risk for growth and spread of Legionella, biofilm-associated bacteria, and low or undetectable levels of disinfectant.

McElroy's wants to ensure the occupants of your building are safe when returning to work. To prevent unsafe water systems we recommend the following steps:

  • Cleaning and flushing of all appliances and fixtures such as ice machines, dishwashers, water coolers, hot water heaters, showerheads, water filters, faucets, aerators, eyewash stations, humidifiers, etc.
  • Flushing of all domestic water lines until appropriate levels of chlorine are detected.
  • Inspection and cleaning of mechanical equipment such as cooling towers, boilers, pumps, backflow preventers, and hot water systems.
  • Cleaning, disinfection, and inspection of any water treatment devices and changing of all water filters.

Call McElroy's for help ensuring your building's safety for workers as we move forward. (785) 266-4870
