When Was Your Dialysis Center’s Last Mold Inspection? – Advanced Mold Diagnostics
Advanced Mold Diagnostics can provide the mold inspection you need to keep your dialysis center safe and sanitary for all patients.
You may be in and out of the water treatment room, the equipment repair room, bi-carb mixing room several times each day, but how often do you look around these areas of your dialysis center for water damage and mold growth? Even when you go into these rooms, how closely do you look? If you do take the time for a closer inspection, you may notice moisture accumulation or even mold growth. Often, this is the case in dialysis centers like yours, because of the water treatment processes required for patient dialysis. Whether you can see mold or simply moisture accumulation, it may be time to schedule a mold inspection with Advanced Mold Diagnostics.
What is a Mold Inspection?
Mold inspection, also sometimes called mold testing or assessment, is achieved through the use of thermal imaging, moisture meters, and visual inspection. The process typically has four objectives:
- Assess whether or not mold is present
- Discover how far mold has spread
- Determine the root cause of the mold
- Evaluate what it will take to correct mold growth and its initial cause
In some cases, if mold is found, testing is also required to determine what type of mold has developed.
As many of your facility administrators are registered nurses, you’re aware that mold is not as bad as the media portrays it to be, except when at-risk individuals are involved, such as dialysis patients. This assessment is the first step in the journey of restoring your dialysis center from potential mold growth, which may pose a health hazard for your at-risk patients.
Dialysis Centers & Advanced Mold Diagnostics
If you suspect that your dialysis center may have problems with mold growth, you are not alone. This is a common problem for facilities such as yours because of the regular treatment and storage of water. Anytime there is a leak or spill that goes undetected, which may easily happen when you are focused on the task of taking care of patients, the potential for mold is present. This is one reason that regular mold inspections are an important part of keeping your facilities safe for those patients with compromised immune systems.
At Advanced Mold Diagnostics, we are familiar with the risks and concerns of dialysis centers dealing with mold growth. Although it is important for you to detect and resolve the mold problem as quickly as possible, you also need a team that is able to work professionally, quickly, and quietly, so as not to disturb patients being treated on site. Our team has a long history of working in such facilities and can perform an expert mold inspection without unnecessary disruption.
