The Importance of Containment on Mitigation and Remediation Jobs

1/14/2022 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Anderson often uses containment on our jobs. Our production crew uses containment on all types of jobs; this includes water, fire, mold, sewage, and cleaning. Containment is an important first step that can often be overlooked. 

Setting up containment barriers before the drying process can aid in avoiding cross contamination and provide a number of other benefits. Some of the reasons why it is so important to set containment are;
  • Keeping building occupants safe - before removing any unsalvageable building materials, containment barriers are set up to keep dust and any other debris within the work area.
  • Avoid cross contamination - If mold has grown on any impacted building materials needing to be removed, containment barriers will keep any airborne mold spores from cross contaminating the other parts of the site during the removal process.
  • Avoid additional clean up of unrelated areas of the site and or mold cross contamination
  • Clean the air within the affected space- A HEPA filter is used to create negative air pressure to capture any released spores and filter clean air within the contained space.

SERVPRO of Anderson strives to leave your business or home in as close to pre loss condition as possible, and we pride ourselves in putting your safety first.

photos in office with microbial growth Contents Damage in Office Computer Room

This local business called us at SERVPRO of Anderson with visible microbial growth damages. Upon initial inspection, our team found that the cause was most likely from the drop tile ceilings above. The microbial growth was very apparent and had affected much of the room's contents. At SERVPRO of Anderson, not only is our production crew trained and experienced in remediating your business, but we are also able to get your contents clean and in pre loss condition. 

Due to the nature of the loss, our production crew take extra precautions before beginning any pack-out of contents or cleaning. Before they begin, containment is set on the door to the room to prevent the spread of any debris. An extra step to clean contents before the pack-out is also taken to help keep the spores contained to that room for cleaning. Once these steps are taken, our crew proceed to place negative air tubing and remove affected materials. 

At SERVPRO of Anderson our goal is leave your business in as close to pre loss condition as possible. Give us a call at (864)-224-0285 for our commercial services.
