Water quality testing from M3 Environmental Consulting can help you protect hotel guests from legionella, and other waterborne illnesses, in the Monterey, CA area. Legionella outbreaks in hotels are reported in several cities each year. News outlets are widely reporting on these issues, causing dips in tourism.
The Legionella Bacteria
The legionella bacteria is a pathogen that can cause a severe form of pneumonia. It is found in various water sources and sometimes soil. Hotels and resorts have unfortunately come under scrutiny for outbreaks of Legionnaires’ disease as guests become critically ill or even die.
If you are a hotel manager or owner, don’t risk the health of your guests or staff. At M3 Environmental Consulting, we can conduct thorough, commercial legionella testing to ensure those who stay and work in your hotels, motels, resorts, lodges, or other accommodations are safe.
Symptoms Of Legionnaires’ Disease
Common symptoms and side effects of Legionnaires’ disease are similar to several other illnesses, so it can be challenging to determine the root cause at first. Guests may report any number of symptoms. Most appear to be flu-like at the beginning, but get progressively worse.
- Muscle aches
- High Fevers
- Cough (May Include Mucous & Blood)
- Chest Pain
- Difficulty Breathing
- Nausea & Vomiting
- Neurological Problems
Legionella Hotel Hotspots
Surprisingly, the status of the hotel is irrelevant when it comes to legionella. Legionnaires’ disease can strike anywhere, from a budget motel to a posh, 5-star resort. Guests may come in contact with Legionella bacteria from several sources on the hotel property.
A legionella inspection can help you determine a contaminated source so you can begin the process of remediation. We can inspect your buildings for any water sources that may be a problem.
