When a commercial or industrial property is damaged, potentially hazardous airborne substances such as mold, lead, and asbestos can travel from their source and affect other, unaffected areas of a property resulting in higher costs and additional cleanup time. Containment effectively limits and prevents further damages, benefiting both the property owner and the insurer.
Mold spores are especially easily disrupted, and without containment can spread throughout a property with ease. Proper containment limits the spread of the mold and provides for a more efficient cleanup.
Reduce Costs & Ensure Continuity
Containment works by enclosing the affected area in a secure environment. Cleanup and repairs are limited to a small area, reducing costs and the amount of time and labor required for restoration. Containment also protects the health and safety of the building’s occupants as well as our own employees by limiting exposure and contamination.
Proper containment has many benefits for both the property owner and the insurer. Containment lowers the cost of claims by reducing property damage and cleanup times and costs. Repairs can be made more quickly and with less liability. Containment also limits business disruption by creating a physical barrier between the construction area and other areas of the property. Noise, dust, and unsightly construction views are reduced by the use of containment.
At URI, we focus on ensuring business continuity, and containment limits and contains the damage. When only a portion of your property is affected, you can safely resume operations with limited risk. Contact us today to learn more about our containment and property restoration services.
