Two Ways that Commercial Water Damage can Affect Patient Health in Suwanee
A Couple Ways Water Damage Can Affect Your Suwanee Commercial Property
Nursing care facilities are not immune from structural problems, much like the patients that live within them. Part of the problem is that nursing care facilities, like all other buildings, are unable to tell anyone what is wrong, and this can often lead to problems growing larger and larger.
When a Suwanee facility has commercial water damage, the safety of the building can become not only less safe but end up putting patients at risk. These risks involve many things that do not require patients to be in the immediate area. Even smaller-sized leaks can create these same hazards and risks for patients, especially those with a decreased ability to fight off infections or who have pulmonary concerns.
For those who provide care to patients with a heightened sensitivity to mold and other airborne contaminants, knowing that it takes as little as two days for mold to begin growing in hidden locations can be especially frightening. This is particularly the case when it is realized that many areas that have been harboring mold are often those areas discovered only during an inspection.
Increased humidity can make breathing more strenuous for some patients. Even very healthy people can find themselves feeling less vigorous and energetic when humidity levels rise. Raising the temperature when there is higher humidity can make the area seem sweltering, and lowering the temperature can make everyone feel damp and clammy. Both are highly uncomfortable.
At SERVPRO, we have the solutions, and the means, that can help you continue providing care to all of your patients. We can repair damaged areas so that the structural integrity of your facility is restored. As we do this, we not only remove the damaged and weakened areas, we also clean away any secondary water damage that is beginning to form. Drying out of materials closest to where the water intrusion took place is a large part of returning things back to normal. Along with that, we also use industrial-grade dehumidifiers and air scrubbers.
