EPA Certified Lead Based Paint Removal
Prior to the 1970’s, the dangers of lead paint were not widely known or acknowledged. Now, we know that lead based paint can pose a serious health risk to anyone exposed to dust or fumes; Pregnant women and children are more likely to be severely affected by lead based paints. While its level of danger only increases when the paint becomes detached from the wall, you must consider that over time lead based paint will begin to flake off or crumble putting dangerous lead dust in the air, so it is safest for the health of you and your family to be removed as soon as it is identified.
When removing lead paint there are several critical precautions that must be taken or the problem can actually become worse. When removing lead based paint, dust and fumes containing lead can get kicked up and spread throughout a room, into vents, or even inhaled, so it is absolutely imperative to use cleaning methods that will not generate excess dust and fumes.
