A well ventilated home, free from condensation and mould is a healthy home. If you are struggling with mould build up in your home, please get in touch.
Water safety - Legionella
Legionella is a common bacterium found in natural environments including ponds, rivers, and lakes. The bacteria can also be supplied in small counts within mains water supply. Where there is water and the conditions of creating water droplets (aerosol), people using or within the area of these services may be at risk.
Being prepared for floods
Even homes that are not in an immediate risk of flooding can be affected by excessive rainfall. ‘Surface water’ occurs when drainage systems are unable to cope with sudden, heavy rainfall, causing flash floods. Unfortunately there is no direct warning for this type of flood, but there are precautions that you can take.
Administering First Aid in an Emergency
Every year in the UK, thousands of people die or are seriously injured in incidents. Many deaths could be prevented if first aid was given before emergency services arrive.

Learning even the simplest first aid skill can make the difference in an emergency.
