The Vital Role Of Containment

Share This Post

THE ROLE OF CONTAINMENT

In the disaster cleanup business, there are various terms describing the work technicians can offer. These terms define the steps taken to return the property to its pre-damage condition:

Containment: containing damage and making sure it doesn’t spread
Remediation: cleaning up the damage and taking steps to prevent damage from happening in the future
Restoration: replacing and repairing damaged areas and items until the property looks new again

Of course, in many ways, when cleanup and restoration professionals have finished their work, the property looks new and is better off than before the disaster occurred.


CONFINING DAMAGE

One aspect of this work that is often overlooked by property owners is the first step of containing the damage. However, this may also be one of the most important steps completed. For example, during an attic restoration, technicians may find mold and other water damage. Without properly taping off the area, mold spores could escape into other areas of the property.


FOCUSING ON THE SOURCE

There are two aspects to properly containing a damaged area; these are source and area containment. The first of these focuses on the source of damage. For example, if there’s a broken pipe causing a flooded basement, technicians first put a stop to the flow of water. Next, technicians contain damage to the specific part of the basement or the affected room. The goal is to prevent water or water damage from seeping into other parts of the property.


PROTECTING PROPERTY AND THE ENVIRONMENT

Many cleanup and restoration technicians today offer green options while containing any damage. Technicians may have reusable supplies and environment-friendly cleansers. The decision to “go green” keeps costs down for the restoration company which, in turn, reduces costs for customers. It is also an important way to protect communities from the possibly harmful effects of certain chemical cleansers and from plastic waste.


As cleanup and restoration professionals complete the tasks involved in containment, remediation, and restoration, property owners may learn how to prevent future disasters and the resulting damage. Property owners may also reach out to their insurance company for more tips and advice regarding reducing the risk of damage.
