The use of lead in everyday objects dates to the Romans. It was an inexpensive metal that even formed the pipes for their drinking water. Lead became popular in paint as a color additive, because it decreased the amount of time it takes for paint to dry, makes it more durable, and creates a moisture resistance, making them popular on house paints, paints for exposed metal and even children’s toys. Our team of experienced professionals will perform lead paint testing and lead abatement on your Carrollton building.
The lead was removed from gasoline and paint products decades ago, but there is still enough left over to cause concern. It is estimated that between 1999 and 2010, 1.2 million children in the United States had elevated blood lead levels. The image of a child eating lead paint flakes directly off the wall is false. Most of the exposure that children experience is from inhaling dust from the paint. Our team of professionals can remove the hazard from your Carrollton building, making it safer for the occupants.
Our lead risk assessors use lead paint testing to decide if paint should be removed from your Carrollton property or if it should be left in place and sealed. Special paints or sheet rock can contain the paint, but removal is almost always the best solution. For lead paint removal, we seal the area, use special HEPA sanders and special suits to decrease exposure to the lead paint dust. We take lead particulate readings to ensure that we have safely removed the hazards from your Carrollton building.
