Here in the UK, we generally tend to take having hot water readily available for granted. It is only when hot water systems fail that we realise how much we depend on having it. Not having any hot water is not only inconvenient, it is also dangerous. Here are some of the dangers of not having hot water.
The dangers of not having hot water
Without hot water, we are unable to wash properly or keep food preparation areas, kitchen equipment, pots, dishes and so on clean. This, of course, means that any bacteria present on our hands, on work surfaces, equipment or utensils, etc. is not removed and can happily thrive and spread from one thing to the next. One of the main dangers of not having hot water is, therefore, the risk of food poisoning infections.
Dangers of not having hot water in restaurant kitchens
Having no hot water in your home is bad enough, but if a restaurant kitchen is without hot water, the subsequent lack of food hygiene could cause a major, widespread food poisoning outbreak.
Made ill at a restaurant
If you were infected with food poisoning bacteria at a restaurant in the last 36 months, you could be eligible to make a public liability claim.

With more than a decade’s worth of experience in processing food poisoning claims, we can:
- Provide you with useful, no-obligation food poisoning advice
- Assist you in establishing who was responsible and subsequently liable for your food-related illness
- Help you get the compensation you are entitled to quickly, efficiently and without any hassle
What’s more, our in-house solicitors operate on a 100% no-win, no-fee* basis, which means you have to pay nothing upfront.
Any costs we may incur while processing your claim will be covered by a percentage deducted from the compensation you receive after your claim. This, of course, means you can claim without worrying about the financial implications of doing so.
Should you unexpectedly fail to be awarded any compensation, there will be no solicitors’ fees. You may, however, be required to pay other legal fees or costs incurred during the claim process.
