When mold becomes present in a home or business, precautionary measures must be taken to ensure that it does not spread further. Mold containment is arguably one of the most important steps in the mold remediation process. Containment is set up using a plastic barrier so that the affected area is separated from nonaffected areas. The goal of containment is to limit the spread of mold throughout the building during the remediation process.
In this picture, containment is set up between the kitchen and office. When our team arrived on-site, they found a drainpipe from a nearby bathroom leaking. This caused excessive amounts of water damage behind the walls for an undetermined period of time which lead to the growth of mold. Containment was assembled and our technicians got right to work remediating the affected areas.
