LEAD-BASED PAINT REMOVAL
Lead-based paint removal is the process of containing the lead dust created by disturbing the paint. The containment requires the setup of dust containment apparatuses, including sealing off doorways and HVAC dust with plastic. We maintain a lead-safe certificate, which provides you with the confidence that we are using up-to-date techniques required by law.
Lead is considered to be a harmful environmental pollutant and old lead-based paint is the most significant source of lead exposure in the U.S. Most homes built before 1960 contain heavily leaded paint, and some homes built as recently as 1978 may also contain lead paint.
We maintain a lead-safe certification and are equipped to assist you in your renovations. Effective April 22, 2010, any renovation, repair and painting project that disturbs lead-based coatings (including paint, shellac or varnish) in child-occupied facilities built before 1978 must be certified and must follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination. These EPA rules were established to minimize the creation of hazardous lead dust.
