While commercial roofing maintenance is important with any commercial building, it is especially critical for any building used in the healthcare industry. The medical community as a whole presents the image that “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” when it comes to your health. Hence, it would be ironic for any to not practice that when it comes to the care of their building. There are many hazards that can be averted by conducting regular commercial roofing maintenance. Here are just a few:
- Roof leaks can cause wet walking conditions – You don’t want someone to be worse off after being in your medical facility than they were when they came to you to seek treatment. Avoid a slip-and-fall by taking care of any leaks promptly.
- Roof leaks can damage expensive medical equipment – Water and electrical components do not mix. Not only could you have the expense of repairing or replacing the equipment, but someone could fail to get the care they need while the equipment is out of service. It could also malfunction and pose a danger to the patient or the equipment operator.
- Roof leaks can result in indoor air quality issues – Water damage can quickly result in mold and mildew that can adversely affect your patients and staff, as well as result in costly mold remediation.
- Roof leaks can disrupt services – It is far less disruptive to have regular commercial roofing maintenance done than it is to deal with a collapsed ceiling or other water damage.
