What is Effective Containment?

Effective containment is a critical first step before any structure restoration can take place. The specific problem must be determined and measures taken for containment to prevent damage from spreading to other areas. Depending on the type of disaster that’s befallen a home or business, restoration professionals can encounter a number of toxins and pathogens.

Restoration experts can encounter pathogens that include mold, bacteria, asbestos and lead. The particles are very small, easily moved around by even the smallest of air currents, and can spread to contaminate other areas. There are specific protocols for effective containment depending on the type of contaminants that are present. Effective containment includes identifying the exact source of the contamination and eliminating it.

Containment shortens the restoration time and reduces the amount of damage to homes and businesses. It also provides a cleaner and healthier environment for restoration workers, families and employees. Containment reduces liability for the property owner, aids in maintaining property value, and provides documentation for insurance companies.

Just because property owners can’t see the damage doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. There are a variety of specialized tools, techniques and methods that restoration professionals can use to contain contaminates, remove them safety, and dispose of them in a prescribed manner. It’s an essential protocol that restoration specialists follow to prevent exposure to potentially dangerous toxins.

Restoration experts are specially trained in containment and removal protocols that adhere to state and federal regulations. It’s one of the many reasons why the services of a restoration company are important. Building contractors aren’t trained in contaminant identification, containment and eradication.

Without containment measures after a fire, flood or other disaster, contaminants will spread throughout a structure and stay there indefinitely. Smoke from fires spread soot that contain carcinogens, while water damage often leads to mold growth that’s especially detrimental to those with respiratory problems.
