Building Containment During Mitigation After a Storm

4/11/2019 (Permalink)

Only part of this room was affected, so it was sectioned off with plastic to prevent unaffected areas from becoming contaminated.

Sometimes our crews need to move through unaffected areas of a home or business to get debris from the affected area to a disposal site. When that happens, our crews build containment chambers to prevent dust from spreading to the unaffected areas. Containment chambers are also built to reduce the amount of air being dried, which can speed up drying times.

On this job, ice dams formed in multiple places which allowed water to come into the building. The affected ceiling tiles and insulation had to be removed. The crews used plastic sheeting to construct containment so that the unaffected areas would not be contaminated. Once demolition was completed, the containment helped the affected areas dry significantly faster, with less equipment for a more cost effective job.
