Mold remediation is most important in the medical sector than perhaps in any other. While homes and other businesses can certainly suffer from a mold infestation, and can even suffer severe damage, mold infestation is unlikely to actually harm anyone. Even the importance of mold remediation for dialysis centers, which is an essential part of running a clean and safe facility is of equal importance when it comes to commercial mold remediation for hospitals.
The reason that commercial mold remediation in hospitals and dialysis centers are so important to running them safely is the health risks that mold infestations can pose. You will often hear us say that the mold spores produced by most species of mold are relatively harmless, and that is true–for healthy people with normally functioning immune systems. This is not the case for people with compromised immune systems or in poor health. While a bad mold infestation in a hospital can be a serious problem, it is not necessarily life-threatening. Read on to discover some of the complications that can arise from untreated mold infestations in hospitals.
When a hospital experiences a mold infestation, there can be many health consequences. Here are some of the ways in which mold can affect the health of hospital patients.
While none of these health consequences are guaranteed to happen in facilities that haven’t had commercial mold remediation, facilities that haven’t are certainly at higher risk.
