Prior to 1978, lead was used in the manufacturing of paint. That year, the manufacture of lead-based house paint was banned due to it being a highly toxic heavy metal that often leads to toxic contamination of the building or residence. Today, lead abatement is regulated by many environmental laws and regulations, and it is required that any lead-related handling including testing, abatement, disposal, and general work only be completed by a licensed and trained environmental contractor.
Coming in contact with lead-based surfaces can expose individuals to dangerously high levels of toxins. Most commonly, lead can be found in dust originating from moving parts of windows, doors, and other painted surfaces. Other exposure can come from lead-based wood trim paint, wall paint, stair paint, railing paint, cabinet paint, fire escapes, work clothes contaminated with lead, and even from soil that has been contaminated with lead paints.
Removal and abatement of lead is an intense and delicate process that requires adequate preparation of the contaminated site, the design of contaminant prevention measures, wet scraping, surface treatment, paint cleanup, testing, disposal and much more.
Our trained and certified lead abatement technicians are able to help our clients determine the potential risk and exposure levels to lead, test for the presence of lead in a work environment, and design advanced plans for proper lead abatement and removal procedures.
