Have you ever considered the impact a water loss has on a hospital?  Hospitals can suffer water damage during any season.  A burst water line can affect many different areas, including the emergency room, operating rooms, exam areas, patient rooms, and supply areas.  The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has guidelines for hospitals to follow.  The hospital staff is under great pressure to remove any standing water and dry affected areas quickly to avoid contamination by microorganisms.  The extent of the damage determines whether the facility may be restored, repaired, and reopened.  SERVPRO of Springdale North, Southwest Benton County has been called on to restore hospitals in Siloam Springs.

After the decision is made to repair and reoccupy the building(s), the CDC suggests damaged or contaminated materials and structures be removed and discarded, while salvageable materials and items can be thoroughly dried, repaired, cleaned, and restored to safe function. The restoration of a hospital to full function is a complicated, multidisciplinary task, requiring the assistance of engineers, professional remediation companies like SERVPRO of Springdale North, Southwest Benton County and manufacturers of healthcare equipment. Once the work to restore the building is finished and the building is returned to service, periodic inspection of the remediated structure will be necessary to identify mold growth. Clinical- and laboratory-based surveillance in the facility for unusual clusters of infectious diseases due to pathogens in the environment will also be essential.

If you experience a commercial fire or water loss, SERVPRO of Springdale North, Southwest Benton County should be your first choice for any residential or commercial restoration needs. Our team of professionals is trained to assess the damage and potential threats, contain the affected area, dry, and restore your property to preloss condition.  SERVPRO of Springdale North, Southwest Benton County is available 24/7 by calling 479-419-5544.
