Protecting the health and safety of both patients and staff is a primary concern for hospitals. As such, there’s been an emphasis on preventing healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) in recent years. HAIs cost the U.S. healthcare system an estimated $9.8 billion each year. But when a healthcare facility is undergoing construction—from a new wing to structural updates, etc.—dust, mold, microbes and other airborne particles are introduced into the environment, placing patients and staff in jeopardy. Polygon has the capability, knowledge and skills necessary to provide temporary climate solutions to stabilize the climate during a hospital construction project, helping to maintain a safe and healthy environment. Microorganisms and spores are present in the air around us and start to grow wherever they land if their basic needs are met. Moisture accumulation and dampness at a hospital construction site can provide an ideal environment to promote mold, mildew, and microbial growth. Also, if insulation becomes damp and that moisture is trapped inside finished walls, the R-value diminishes, leading to higher heating and cooling bills in the future. And when steel wall ties, screws, stu...
