Most construction projects create dust and debris, and if these projects are in remodeling, extensions, and modifications to existing structures this can lead to the project becoming a nuisance to people and the environment of homes that are occupied or workplaces that need to continue with their operations.

It is possible to set up temporary interior dust and debris protection installations so that any contamination from the dust and debris is controlled and limited in its spread to the work area. In this form of protection, barriers are installed that block the unwanted debris and dust, and even odors from spreading to the other areas that are in use, or has machinery working.

While installing such barriers, arrangements also need to be made to constantly clear the contamination through the use of blowers, or exhaust systems. Some of these systems also make use of sound barriers to prevent the construction noise from causing any distraction.
