Today we are going to learn about containments. What are they and why are they used? Both those questions will be answered. Wait until the end to see the completed containment.

To make a containment, two strips of painter’s tape are placed around the entire edge of the door frame. One stripe of double-sided tape is then placed on top. After the double-sided tape is applied, the plastic is strategically is placed on top and cut to fit the frame. Depending on if the contained space needs to be re-entered, then a zipper will be placed for easy access to the room

A containment is set on a fire, reconstruction, water, or mold as a way to keep the affected area enclosed. It is essentially a barrier.  It also can speed up the restoration process, encapsulating the airflow from air movers strictly to the damaged room.

For a fire, the containment keeps the non-damaged area from smoke exposure. For a water job, it can help dry a specific area faster with a smaller area to dry. For demolition and reconstruction, it prevents dust and debris from getting into certain areas.
