In hospitals and medical centers, constant maintenance of the facilities is necessary in order to always have a clean and healthy environment. In medical facilities, it is important to ensure that service requests are handled quickly and efficiently. A schedule of preventive maintenance tasks should be established so that operations run without interruption.
Often, repairs in hospitals must be carried out in such a way that there is little or no downtime. Fundamentally, without interruptions in the operation of the facilities.
Belzona has demonstrated reliability and success in the repair and maintenance of healthcare facilities, in areas including, but not limited to:
- Roofs and their components: skylights, gutters and parapets
- Floors, stairs, ramps, parking lots, sidewalks, driveways, expansion joints
- HVAC systems: boilers, air handling units, diesel engines, fans, pumps, condensers, generators, compressors
- Plumbing, purification and water filtration
- Elevator systems, facades
- Auxiliary systems: waste and sewage management, power generation, information storage
