Did you know that establishments built before 1968 most likely used lead-based paint? Previously, lead-based paint could be used on any surface, though it is most often found on the exterior of a home or commercial building. Interior woodworking, doors, windows, and various other surfaces may also contain lead on older establishments. Before lead-based paint was outlawed by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, it was used for its durability, freshness, and user friendliness. Though seemingly handy for big projects, lead-based paint is incredibly hazardous and can cause a plethora of health issues.
Our lead abatement process has been perfected over our many years of service. To remove lead, we use the safest method available to avoid contamination of the surrounding area.
