Expert Lead paint ABATEMENT and removal

Many older industrial, governmental, residential, institutional, and commercial structures built before 1978 may contain lead-based paint in woodwork, on walls, and on exterior surfaces. Lead is highly toxic and can cause a range of health problems and damage to vital organs if absorbed into the body.

Leaving lead-based paint untreated can put industrial and commercial building owners and facility managers at risk. There is the possibility for fines and other legal action for exposure-related health problems and environmental impact due to improper removal techniques.

Is Lead Paint In An Older Building Dangerous?

Lead (known as Pb on the periodic table of elements) is a naturally occurring element found in rock and soil. It was once used extensively in a wide variety of products, including interior and exterior paints in industrial, governmental, institutional, and commercial buildings. If untreated, the paint in old buildings will produce paint chips and lead dust.

The most common ways people are exposed to lead is through drinking contaminated water, inhaling lead particles in the air, or ingesting lead dust or flakes, especially in the form of lead-based paint. When old paint deteriorates or is disturbed through sanding or demolition, lead dust or flakes are easily released into the air and collected on interior surfaces. They can also make their way into the soil.

Lead is a toxic metal that can cause significant health issues, mental illness or even death when ingested or inhaled. Because of the serious consequences of lead exposure, many laws have been enacted to address lead contamination.
