When Disaster Strikes a Healthcare Facility, DKI Services Can Help
Disasters come in many shapes and forms, and it is always unplanned. When disaster strikes a healthcare facility, DKI Restoration Services can help. This experienced company offers expert damage restoration for healthcare facilities and institutions. DKI Commercial Solutions delivers prompt professional response time by qualified damage restoration specialists that have been specially trained to handle the problems that a healthcare disaster can bring. They are trained to immediately assess the site and limit the spread of disease from airborne pathogens disrupted by the disaster. These damage restoration professionals will keep the important healthcare providers able to deliver their required care while work is ongoing to help the affected building recover.
DKI Services have trained their elite healthcare disaster response team members in appropriate and up-to-date infection control measures in addition to their damage control training. These response team members have documented CERC accreditation in Critical Environmental Reconstruction Contractors as well as STARC Airtight Containment training. They build a temporary and removable wall that is completely airtight effectively blocking any contamination from the contained work area to the areas where patients are being cared for. This wall stays up throughout the entire restoration time period. The healthcare facility is able to continue with normal business without fearing that patients will be affected by the damage control work.
The employees of DKI Services have also been trained in the protocols that hospitals use for their Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA) protocols and risk management with infection control policies. Teaming with other healthcare related infection control educators, DKI Services is able to deliver safe restoration damage control efforts to healthcare hospitals, facilities and institutions that need disaster related restoration cleanup.
A disaster that can affect a medical facility includes massive water damage from broken plumbing or due to a weather related storm with high levels of rainfall. An area flood can get into the ground levels of a healthcare building requiring emergency flood and water damage assessment, cleanup and recovery services. DKI Services are the go-to professionals for any healthcare related disaster situation. They will bring powerful vacuums and other water extraction equipment to pump out excessive water before structure damage or collapse occurs. These experts will pinpoint to problem and come up with a plan of action to resolve the issue. Having an emergency response company available 24/7 in case of a disaster or other emergency is critical for healthcare facilities to have.
Storms with high winds can lift roof portions of any building including buildings occupied by a healthcare group. Heavy rains can flood the top floors putting patients and healthcare staff at risk. As wind and water continues, the building’s structure can begin to break up or even collapse. DKI Services will send in a team that can contain the damage before the entire building is affected. They are prepared for lighting strike fires as well. If a building fire occurs, this restoration company will get to work limiting any smoke, fire and firefighting water damage. Then they will proceed with effective restoration services.
Nobody wants to deal with a serious natural disaster. Healthcare providers are especially concerned. When a disaster does happen, DKI Services is there to ensure that the area is safe and patients are not harmed.
