Hospitals work with professional organizations, quality control experts and accreditation organizations to provide the safest facility for patients and visitors. Still, simply because of the configuration of your property, water damage occurs frequently. Most water damage incidents, no matter how minor, should be taken care of as soon as possible. Unchecked water damage creates additional expenses for your facility. Moisture and humidity promote structural damage, wood rot, peeling paint, and mold. Unrepaired leaks can damage ceilings, floors, walls, furniture, electronics, personal possessions of patients, and create safety hazards. These issues can reduce occupancy, damage a facility’s reputation, and interrupt regular operations. But the issues with your facility’s infrastructure and contents are secondary to the health and safety issues that accompany indoor flooding. Floodwater is highly unsanitary. Exposure causes harmful effects such as skin irritation, respiratory issues, and gastrointestinal disorders. Mold begins to develop within 24-48 hours after water damage occurs. Mold spores affect indoor air quality and release toxins, which can cause additional health issues such as allergic reactions, asthma attacks, and other respiratory illnesses. Often the most susceptible are the elderly and people with pre-existing illnesses.
Showcase Restoration’s Commercial Services Team follows industry best practices to address water damage. We use dehumidification and heat technologies to effectively dry impacted areas and materials as quickly as possible. These processes minimize the amount of wet materials that require removal, helping to reduce the duration and cost of the project. For contaminated water, such as sewage backups or floodwaters, our technicians focus on containment, negative air pressure, removal, and decontamination to keep patients, staff, and visitors safe. Following water extraction and drying, Showcase Restoration’s Commercial Services Team will disinfect all affected contents and structural components and perform mold inspection. If mold is found, we will contain and remediate it immediately prior to undertaking structural repairs. Once the water damage restoration process is complete and your property is fully dry, we will begin work on your structure.
Our Contents Restoration Team will inventory, document, pack out, and remove damaged contents to our Advance Processing Center. Many items believed to be unsalvageable such as fabrics, furniture, and priceless documents and photos can be restored to pre-loss condition. Once the contents are removed, we will begin structural repairs and restoration of your building. Upon completion, our Contents Restoration Team will return to your facility to unpack the restored items. If items cannot be restored, we will document the damage for your insurance company so they can be replaced.

Bio-Hazard Mitigation & Mold Remediation
Mold is one of the most troublesome environmental hazards causing problems for any facility manager. Not only does mold put your patients, staff, and visitors at risk, but it requires a significant investment of time and money to mitigate if not addressed quickly. Water leaks and intrusions can go from a relatively quick and simple moisture mitigation job to a costly mold and moisture remediation project in less than 48 hours. Response time is critical when mold and moisture problems occur. Trust our team of certified professionals to begin mold removal and remediation as soon as the mold is identified. We will take the necessary steps to address any mold issues. Mold services include:
- Mold inspection and identification
- Mold containment
- Mold removal and remediation
- Removal of airborne mold spores
- Cleaning and sanitizing the affected areas
- Final mold inspection with a post-mold removal air sampling to ensure a successful mold remediation job
Emergency Planning Services
For Hospitals and Medical Facilities, an Emergency Response Plan (ERP) is the most effective way to reduce services interruption after a disaster or emergency happens and is a key factor in managing your business and ensuring the health and safety of your patients and staff. Building a comprehensive plan can be challenging when you consider all the types of disasters and emergencies that can occur. Our Commercial Restoration Team of emergency response experts provides Emergency Response Planning services free of charge to assist you in assessing probable risks and building a comprehensive disaster and emergency response plan for any possible scenario. Most medical facilities require comprehensive risk management plans including evacuation and shelter plans, power and communications backup plans, data protection and migration plans, and staff training plans for various emergency situations. Additionally, ensuring adequate commercial property insurance and business interruption insurance is critical.
Showcase Restoration partners with our hospitals and medical facility clients to assist them in developing and executing disaster and emergency response plans (ERP), organizing project work around patient safety and operational considerations, and advising on risks and liabilities. When you participate in our ERP Emergency Response Program, we become an integral part of your response plans. We will meet with you and your staff to collect site-specific information before a loss happens. This allows us to create a custom step-by-step emergency/disaster plan tailored for your organization and your property that is accessible 24/7 to ensure you are prepared for any event that occurs. Whether we are dealing with an emergency or a scheduled service, we quickly implement the optimum solution for each situation. Our focus is always on staff and patient safety, reducing turn-around time and inconvenience, minimizing your losses and getting you back to normal operations quickly.
