Shower heads deliver water at around 45°C, making them a potential breeding ground for bacteria such as legionella which is why disinfection of shower heads  is important. Limescale is a nutrient, and under the right conditions can facilitate bacterial contamination and proliferation.

We clean, descale and disinfect your shower heads using specialist industrial strength chemicals not available on the high street. All our work is documented and filed, giving you peace of mind that you are in the safest of hands and fully compliant with current legislation.

In order to comply with ACoP L8 HSE guidelines, shower heads must be cleaned and disinfected regularly (at least every 3 months). Our engineers are highly experienced in removing, dismantling and cleaning of all shower head types.
