The Truth Behind Takedown
One of the most common questions customers ask the TuffWrap® team about a suspended cover installation has absolutely nothing to do with the installation itself. Regularly, we are asked:
“How do you get it down when the project is over?”
“Good question. Why should you choose to install containment if debris ends up falling in anyway?”
In truth, some things are more of an art than a science. Removing suspended cover is one of those things. Time and time again, our installation team gets it done very successfully. However, we also understand that this is not the most reassuring answer. Here are 4 key points regarding the post-project removal of interior protection.
- It takes a team: Depending on the size of the installation, multiple people will work together to ensure the removal goes smoothly.
- Let’s start at the very beginning: The team will choose where to start the removal based on specific criteria that enable the best possible takedown scenario.
- Cut, sweep, roll, repeat: As the removal is executed, several steps are followed to contain the dust and debris. The team captures it as they go, keeping it inside of the TuffWrap as they roll it up.
- Burrito, please: Once the roll of removed TuffWrap reaches a manageable size, it is cut off from the rest of the installation, pinned closed and taken down. (It does look like a burrito!) All TuffWrap and debris are disposed of appropriately.
The purpose of interior protection is to keep a facility safe and clean throughout a reroofing project and that includes once the project is complete. The entire TuffWrap team works to ensure they meet that commitment by taking the time and appropriate steps to remove the containment properly.
