See for yourself: forgoing a mold inspection is just not worth the risk.
There are two extremes that we want to avoid when it comes to investigating something. On one end of the spectrum, we overlook and ignore clear signs that call for an investigation. Something was wrong and someone needed to look into it, but the warning signs only become clear after it’s too late. The other extreme is being overly cautious and paranoid. Ordinary occurrences are misinterpreted as indications that something is wrong, despite the fact that there is nothing to worry about. When this occurs, an investigation can be embarrassing, since it will show that a lot of fuss was raised about nothing.
If you help operate a dialysis center, then you may be worried about falling into one of these extremes. You think that your center may need a certified mold inspection, but you don’t want to go through with the inspection if nothing is wrong. But, at the same time, you don’t want mold to persist and grow if it has already infested the building. So what do you do?
If you’re in this position, then there is good news: there actually is no dilemma. You can never be too cautious about mold in your dialysis center. In order to prove this, let’s look at the different ways your situation can pan out.
The Different Scenarios Of Certified Mold Inspection
Here’s the situation: you are not sure whether or not you should have a certified mold inspection for your dialysis center. Let’s look at 2 options that you can take and the different scenarios that can result from your decisions.
Decision 1: No Mold Inspection
In Decision 1, you decide to forego a mold inspection. There are two directions this can go:
- Scenario A: There is no mold. In this scenario, there’s no mold after all. While you are correct in your intuition that there is no real mold problem, you still worry about whether or not you have made the right choice. After all, while there’s no mold, you don’t know that for sure, since there was no inspection.
- Scenario B: There is mold. In this scenario, your dialysis center has mold, but you are not aware of the problem since you decided to not have a mold inspector come in and examine your center. Since the mold is untreated, it spreads and causes more damage and air pollution in the center.
Decision 2: Certified Mold Inspection
In Decision 2, you decide to have a certified mold inspector come and assess your dialysis center. Here are the two scenarios made possible by this decision.
- Scenario C: There is no mold. In this scenario, the inspector finds no mold growth.. You may regret the fact that you hired an inspector despite the fact that there was no mold, but you also find comfort in the fact that your dialysis center is mold-free. You did not take the possibility of mold lightly, and now you can focus on other matters.
- Scenario D: There is mold. In this scenario, the mold inspection discovers mold in your dialysis center. The proper steps are taken to remove the mold, creating a healthy, clean, safe environment for your staff and patients.
So if you’re on the fence as to whether or not your dialysis center should have a certified mold inspection, just think about the worst that can happen. The worst case scenario is when you decide to forgo the inspection, and the best case scenario involves having a certified mold inspector assess your facilities. No matter what, a certified mold inspection will give you the peace of mind you need to keep your dialysis center running smoothly.
