The Importance of Containment on Mitigation and Remediation Jobs
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.
