Lead based paint abatement is important in order to remove this hazard from homes and the work place. Many structures build before 1950 and some built as late as 1978 contain heavily leaded paint. As this paint ages tiny pieces may peel or chip off and can be dangerous if ingested. Lead paint in good condition is not usually dangerous unless it is in places that rub together creating dust, such as a window that is opened and closed repeatedly.
Lead paint removal
Removal of lead-based paint requires containment of the lead dust created when disturbing the paint. Containment apparatuses must be set up and all doorways and HVAC ducts sealed with plastic. Be sure to hire a licensed professional such as Curran Environmental to perform the testing and subsequent removal should it be necessary.
