Environmental Efficiency provides bacteria testing services on surface areas using swab samples, and water samples in waste water and sewage for Total and Fecal Coliform, E. coli, Fecal Streptococcus, and Enterococcus.
There are many different types of bacteria in the environment. Most of the bacteria are harmless but some are a health hazard and can pose serious health threats. Common examples of such bacteria are certain strains of E. coli and Streptococcus. These types of bacteria are often associated with sewage events after flooding.
Bacterial contamination is more serious in some industries such as healthcare or food preparation as well as in the home. Failures in hygiene in these environments can potentially lead to food poisoning or disease outbreaks which can be devastating and costly. Bacterial contamination should not be allowed to occur in any occupied spaces.
