The Risks

Although healthcare facilities such as a dialysis center should be among the most sanitary, the fact remains that mold and bacterial growth are a routine problem for them.  The dialysis process requires water cleaned through carbon filters as pretreatment and then reverse osmosis. This system runs in a loop throughout the facility with multiple fittings and connections. With such an intricate system, there are countless opportunities for leaks to occur with the potential to cause water damage and microbial growth.  Additionally, the water and acidic products which are used in this process only compound the risk for water damage which can lead to microbial growth.  Often, these leaks and other water damage occur inside of wall cavities of rooms such as the water treatment room and equipment repair room.  So, while your team is busy attending to patients, mold may be growing out of sight and undetected.

 

How Mold Testing Can Help

If you have not had your facilities assessed for potential water damage and mold growth, it is important to schedule a professional mold testing soon.  Using technology such as thermal imaging, moisture and VOC meters, along with extensive knowledge of where to look, your mold assessment team can help determine if you have a mold problem and how far it may have spread.  Mold testing like this is an important step to take before scheduling a mold remediation because it ensures that you have found all of the sites of mold growth, as well as the problems which may have contributed to their development.  Without the full picture, you cannot be sure you are fully addressing the problem.
