OF LEAD PAINT
Lead paint is found in many homes built prior to 1980 and is a real and significant health hazard. Lead does not have to be ingested to be hazardous, it can also be absorbed through the skin or inhaled in dust form. Children and pregnant women are the most at risk to lead poisoning.
The experts at Asbex Environmental Contractors are trained to safely contain and remove lead contaminated materials. Contact us today for consultation and a free estimate.
You may also need to have your water supply tested for lead, and to make sure there are no dishes with lead-based glazes, or foreign-made toys that may be coated with lead-based paints, in your home.
Families have been poisoned by scraping or sanding lead paint; these activities generate large amounts of lead dust. Lead dust from repairs or renovations of older buildings can remain in the building long after the work is completed. Heating lead paint may release lead into the air.
Lead paint removal is not a do-it-yourself project, contact an experienced environmental contractor.
