Hospitals play different roles throughout the stages of a person’s life. They are a place where we celebrate new life being born, a place where we go for medical attention and unfortunately, a place where we may lose the ones we love from an illness or accident. And with so many vulnerable lives coming in and out of a hospital, the indoor air quality is essential to a healthy recovery process for its patients! Unfortunately, one area that tends get over looked during a hospitals cleaning process is the ventilation system.
Hospitals are supposed to be a safe place for patients who are recovering from an illness or have just undergone surgery. And although it is assumed that indoor air is safer for those with weakened immune systems, it is not always the case. Since a facility’s ductwork is out of sight, it is often out of mind, which means they are not regularly cleaned. This allows the ducts to become the perfect breeding ground for dangerous pollutants that causes the hospital’s air patients are breathing to be contaminated. Bacteria, viruses, mold, and fungus all grow inside a dirty ductwork and can cause devastating harm to a patient during their recovery process.
Therefore, a clean duct is an important key to keeping a safe and healthy environment for everyone who walks through your hospital’s doors. Having your ductwork cleaned can help your hospital improve its indoor air quality by removing dirt, dust and debris from your HVAC system. Not to mention, when people enter a hospital they are hoping to get better, and not get sicker from being there.
