Health risks

The maintenance, cleaning and hygiene of air and water systems are crucial to protect users and help prevent the outbreak and spread of potentially hazardous viruses, fungi and bacteria such as Legionella Pneumophila, Pseudomonas Aeruginosa, Staphylococcus Aureus and other pathogens.

These risks are endemic in hotels, hospitals, gyms and any facility fitted with air and water distribution systems (especially heated) which can create stagnation due to age or poor maintenance.

Employers are legally responsible for health in all workplaces (offices, commercial premises, factories, etc.). Employers are therefore obliged to provide for the remediation and sanitisation of air conditioning systems, air ducts and water pipes. Neglect of and non-compliance with these obligations (provided for by Legislative Decree 81/2008 or the “Consolidated Law on Health and Safety in the Workplace”) constitute a criminal offence and pose a serious health risk for workers.

AV Sanification is able to: identify the system risk areas for each type of structure and environment treated; verify the current status and operating conditions through inspections and sampling; and employ the best methodologies and technical tools to ensure cleaning, remediation and complete sanitisation.

The main systems treated are:

  • Air distribution systems
  • Air Handling Units
  • cooling towers
  • water distribution systems
  • fume extraction ducts and hoods for industry and catering
