Mold Removal for Hospitals
Where is the absolute worst place for mold to grow? No, it’s not between your toes, it is in hospitals. Hospitals must be sanitary for a reason.
Mold can present a difficult and expensive dilemma for hospitals for many obvious reasons. Not only can it cause structural damage to the building, it is also a direct cause of dangerous health care-associated infections. The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) are getting a lot of attention these days in the construction field, as they are placing an increased importance on mold prevention during the building process. Why? Because it estimates that mold in health care facilities are affecting 2 million patients a year. Reactions to mold can range from nasal problems and wheezing to more serious symptoms such as shortness of breath or elevated fever and even death. For instance, an organ transplant recipient that has no immune system…. if mold is present in the hospital area it can risks their lives.
Mold to a healthy person is not a big deal, but to a patient that has compromised health already, mold is a much more pressing issue. Liability issues can be huge if mold in your hospital is not dealt with quickly and effectively. If mold remediation is needed, our job is to evaluate your situation and give you the most practical and reasonable route to end your mold problem. Not only will we stop the mold, but we will put your facility back to pre-mold conditions and make your environment a healthy one for your patients and staff.
Don’t let your area of mold spread to other areas of your hospital…. a building this large needs constant and regular maintenance, high performing HVAC systems and a constant vigilance of water or moisture conditions.
