Water treatment for the hospitality and leisure sector

Hotels, gyms and swimming pools all use hot, cold and potable water services and many of these establishments also include spas, hot tubs, showers, baths and public pools; potential breeding grounds for legionella bacteria.

Guardian Water Treatment has an expert hotel and water team, on-hand to help facilities and general building managers meet the requirements of Approved Code of Practice L8 2013 – The Control of Legionella Bacteria in Water Systems (ACoP L8), protect guests and maintain drinking water quality, while saving the costs and damaged reputations that poor water hygiene can bring.

We can consult on all types of hotel and leisure facility, large or small, at the construction stage, providing pre-commissioning cleaning, legionella risk assessments, subsequent water treatment and ongoing water system maintenance. Guardian uses traditional chemical water treatment as well as cutting-edge non-chemical treatment, Wallenius Advance Oxidation Technology (AOT); a safe, environmentally friendly and cost-effective option for controlling bacterial growth, minimising environmental impact by reducing chemical usage.

To ensure that our services don’t disrupt business, Guardian’s water treatment teams work around the clock, so downtime is kept to a minimum and guests aren’t affected – we realise the importance of discretion.

Air hygiene for the hospitality and leisure sector

Keeping air clean and hygienic is essential in hospitality and leisure facilities, home to numerous staff and guests. Where air temperature and flow is controlled via heating and ventilation systems, air handling and air conditioning units; bacteria, unwanted particles and allergens can be a problem, affecting the efficiency and safe running of plant, while causing health issues for building occupants known as ‘Sick Building Syndrome’ (SBS). Guardian provides air hygiene services, to keep air clean and air movement systems working efficiently, preventing SBS.

Most hospitality and leisure premises also have kitchens, Guardian delivers kitchen extract cleaning to prevent fire, odour, vermin and hygiene risks. We can assess a kitchen extract system to identify any problems and then provide on-going kitchen extract cleaning – an essential part of any commercial or public building’s health and safety policy. Guardian understands that time is money, so can provide kitchen extract services at a time to suit, ensuring downtime is kept to a minimum.
