what is a containment?
In order to prevent the spread of airborne micro-organisms like mold or any other biohazard substances to other unaffected areas in the property, the remediation specialists will build (usually using poly-sheeting and tape) a barrier called containment while they work.
Containments are essential in many of our projects like asbestos/lead/mold abatement projects, restoration of water, fire, or storm damage, crime scene projects, and rebuilt jobs.

Why Containment is Needed ?
Containments greatly reduce the risk of spread of hazardous materials like mold or any other biohazard particles like asbestos, or lead in abatement projects.
In reconstruction projects, the containment act as a barrier to contain dust from demolition, or wood and stone cutting.
Containments prevent further damage to the property and help to reduce the cost of restoration.
Containments make cleaning process easier by stopping the spread of particles all over the property.
Where airborne hazardous substances are present, containments help to reduce the risk of exposure thus improving health and safety of property owners and our team members.
How To Build Containment ?
The most important point when building a containment is to set it up in a way that it is completely sealed and airtight in order to keep everyone safe during restoration and abetment projects. In the affected area or workplace every entrance, passage and fixture or any areas that might permit airflow to the other unaffected area must be sealed.
For setting up a containment, we often use a heavy plastic or polyethylene sheeting and tape. To secure the containment sheets in larger areas studs or frames might be needed.
