A containment is the first step in restoration process. However, little mention is given to the first part of a disaster. According to a Restoration & Remediation magazine article
“The restoration professional is likely to encounter substances like mold, microbials, toxin-producing pathogens, meth lab residues, fire residues and friable lead and asbestos…without containing these potentially toxic substances, at the source and within a confined area, they are likely to end up creating a significantly larger mess than first encountered and quickly saturate the air being inhaled by workers, homeowners and occupants of the affected buildings” (Scott Lavelle).
Our picture shows our employee during a containment process that needed to be done to protect the non-affected areas from dust. This took place before the demolition process of drywall, insulation and floor.
