Containment Procedures to Prevent Cross Contamination

The area of the building having mould remediation work undertaken should not be occupied. Normally it is not necessary to evacuate people from adjacent areas if mould containment procedures are correctly applied except for large mould removal projects. However, it is recommended that people with illnesses list above should be informed, and where possible removed from the adjected areas.

Removal of contaminated materials;

Caution is required to prevent cross contamination when handling contaminated materials that are being removed for disposal, or for decontamination off-site. Contaminated materials must be wrapped in plastic and sealed with tape. This includes the materials and items that are to be retained but require off-site remediation.

Removal of Building Contents;

Assessment weather contaminated contents can be restored (remediated) depends on their condition; material type the cost of remediation; financial value or cost of replacement; and other such as sentimental, legal, cultural, artistic, or historical, etc.
Restore items that can be cleaned and returned to the client. Dispose of items that will not be effectively cleaned. Preserve items that are irreplaceable but cannot be remediated completely and communicate the relevant risk of exposure to the owner. All those with invested interest should be in the decision as to whether contents should be restored or disposed of.

Removal of contents from affected areas;

Avoid cross contamination when moving contents. Contaminated contents must be decontaminated or packaged when moved in or thought out uncontaminated areas. Contents are never to be stored in plastic or sealed containers except to prevent cross contamination when being moved through uncontaminated areas.
