Containment Setup After Mold Damage 

Containing the mold damage in commercial Wethersfield properties is crucial to prevent an aggressive spread of the contamination. Restorers put a lot of effort and resources into establishing strong containment systems to prevent the airborne spores and mold fragments from leaving the affected area. 

SERVPRO follows the IICRC S520 guidelines while restoring mold damage in Wethersfield commercial properties. Once the techs identify the mold-affected areas in your establishments, they seal off the HVAC system and erect isolation barriers using heavy-duty 6-mil polyethylene sheeting. The containment areas can be large or small, depending on the extent of the infestation.           

Is Full-Scale Containment Always Needed During Commercial Mold Remediation? 

Containments for mold damage remediation in your Wethersfield property can be of three types-

  • Source containment
  • Local containment
  • Full-scale containment

The extent of the fungal contamination and the presence of other factors such as moisture problems determine whether the techs use a full-scale containment or not. While a full-scale containment can be intrusive and affect your ability to serve your customers, it might be necessary for some situations. 

SERVPRO techs establish full-scale containments by erecting critical barriers to separate the affected areas from unaffected areas of the building. In most situations, techs also construct decontamination chambers with PVC piping or wood studs if a full-scale containment is required. In some commercial buildings, techs also use prefabricated enclosures to save time. 

The decontamination chambers provide a transition space between the contaminated and surrounding clean areas. ‘Z’ or ‘T’ shaped plastic flaps on the decon chambers allow the techs to enter and exit.
