Lead Paint Removal
Lead Based Paint Removal
When it comes to Lead Paint Removal, our certified lead remediation staff will conduct a thorough lead investigation throughout your residence for air quality and any toxic lead particles. More than 24 million homes in the U.S. were built before 1978. Lead based paint testing has shown increased toxic levels among these older buildings. This remains as a common poisoning hazard that is often overlooked.
Lead Paint Dangers
Young children are particularly susceptible to the effects of lead paint exposure, which can cause permanent brain and nervous system damage when ingested. Many owners of these older homes attempted to remove this hazard by painting over lead paint which only masks the problem temporarily. Lead paint removal requires specialized steps to fully eradicate the metal toxins.
Lead Paint Poisoning
Lead paint in homes can cause reproductive disorders among a variety of other ailments in adults. Pregnant women and their unborn children are particularly susceptible to these lead hazards, especially through the inhalation of lead dust.
Lead Paint Debris
As a heavy metal, lead dust is an extremely dangerous substance which is difficult to remove. Prior to our knowledge of lead paint dangers, lead was the most commonly used coating substance for painted materials including wood trim, moulding, and even children's toys.
When was lead paint banned?
In 1978, lead paint in homes was banned, but the environmental risks still remained. Due to chipping and deterioration, lead can be present in the air, water, soil, and especially inside older homes. As the CDC (Center for Disease Control) states, there are many developmental issues among young adults resulting directly from lead exposure. Proper lead paint removal techniques must be followed to remain safe.
