Water Damage Restoration for the Following Businesses
Water damage repair for hospitals is similar to other water damage repair projects in process, but there are some extra considerations, as a hospital needs to be completely free of structural and cosmetic damage, as well as clear of all water to prevent health and safety risks. Our process is multi-step and comprehensive.
- Consultation: The very first step is in your hands: call 24/7 Complete Restoration to give our staff the basics of what happened and what the damage is.
- In-person assessment: The next step is to conduct an in-person assessment to determine the scope of damage. Although much of the damage could be immediately apparent, more could by lying under the surface. We use tools such as infrared cameras and audio equipment to detect water that cannot be seen by the naked eye. We also determine what kind of water we are dealing with (clean water, grey water or black water)
- Damaged equipment removal: Unfortunately, there will likely be some equipment and material that cannot be saved. This will need to be disposed of, and anything that can be salvaged will need to be removed and tended to. We do our best to save as much of your assets as possible.
- Water removal/extraction: After the damage has been fully assessed and unsalvageable materials removed, we begin to remove the bulk of the water immediately. It is extremely important that we begin the repair process within 48 hours, as that is when serious structural damage and mold growth begins to occur. We have many tools to assist us with water removal including submersible pumps.
- Drying/Dehumidifiers: This next step is crucial to the success of the project, as drying and dehumidifiers prevent mold from setting in over time. We use industrial fans and dehumidifiers to get the job done.
- Cleaning/sanitizing: Although this is an important step in any water damage repair project, it is especially crucial in hospitals. Fully sanitizing the building can prevent water and airborne contaminants and even disease.
- Restoration: Now it is time to begin restoration. This is a broad step including minor building projects, the restoration and replacement of damaged material and goods, and anything else that needs to be done to bring the hospital back to its previous state.
Considerations Unique To Hospitals
Although similar in process, there are extra considerations when working in a medical facility.

You will also want to choose a company that has specific experience working in medical facilities as the stakes are much higher.
Your chosen water damage repair experts will also need to be proficient communicators, as all hospital administrators and unit managers must be in the loop at all times.
