Containment Can Keep Your Doors Open During Storm Cleanup In Durham

After the damages that Hurricane Dorian and other severe weather events have presented to Durham offices over the past decade, many property owners are faster to trust in the experience and quick response of our professionals. Even amid a crisis, our team can work to begin containment strategies designed to limit the spread of water damage and other potential contaminants from reaching dry and clean areas of the building.

It does not take much for these contaminants and hazardous effects that could be present to spread without immediate hurricane and storm cleanup for Durham businesses. Our SERVPRO professionals have accreditations from the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) in all facets of cleaning and water restoration, giving every business owner the confident response that can keep their doors open when possible. Containment is a substantial component of keeping your business going after an emergency.

There are two main ways that our professionals establish effective containment for contaminated areas where controlled demolition, reconstruction, cleaning, extraction, and other debris-inducing and agitating practices could take place.

Building Strategy
The construction of containment walls is a highly effective approach, though it does time to erect these defenses. We can seal off doorways and all other openings with thick (6mm) plastic sheeting. We construct a decontamination room so that cross-contamination and the spread of debris do not occur to unaffected areas of your office. The HVAC system gets disabled and registers and vents covered through the damaged portion of the building.

Negative Pressure
Air filtration devices can blow air outside of the building. These same devices can also control the airflow to the quarantined area of your business. We can permit clean air into an area, while continually working to discharge contaminated air outside of the building. This strategy that piggybacks on structural containment can be an effective method for allowing your office to run in a limited capacity safely.

We strive to get your business back up and running quickly after a water loss emergency, and these containment strategies can help. Give our SERVPRO of North Durham team a call whenever you need us at (919) 467-0880.
