Importance of Containment on a Job Site

Updated: Dec 18, 2019

When Good Times Restoration is performing a Water Mitigation, Mold Remediation, BioHazard Cleanup, or working in an environment with Lead or Asbestos Containment is a very critical part of our job process.



What is Containment?

Containment is used in all aspects of mitigation/abatement. Containment is a polyethylene plastic barrier that is put into place to determine the work zone and dying chamber. Containment serves multiple purposes.


During demolition, containment contains the dust to a specific work area to significantly reduce clean up times and to prevent the spread of dust to other areas of the home or commercial building. Often times there will be an adhesive zipper on the entrance and exit of the containment. This allows entry and exit of personnel and Water Restoration Equipment. As seen in the picture on the left, there is also extending poles and tape that create a seal on containment to prevent the spread of airborne dust particles and contaminants.

Containment also serves as a drying chamber for Water Damage Restoration and Mold Remediation. This drying chamber contains all the Water Restoration equipment and creates a barrier to isolate the difference in temperature, relative humidity, and vapor pressure in the given work area. Air Filtration Devices/Air Scrubbers are attached to the containment and are typically exhausted to the outside. This equipment is used to filter out 99.97% of contaminants and dust particles in the air while also creating pressure differentials in the drying chamber or work area.
