It was the Romans who discovered they could use lead in everyday objects like their piping for drinking water. It was a popular additive for paint both for color, and because it created a more durable, faster drying, moisture resisting paint often used on exposed metal, children’s toys and the interior of buildings. In the late 1970s the United States banned the use of lead in paint. Today, these dangerous paints can still exist in your Grand Prairie building. Our lead abatement crew can eliminate it.
Gasoline and paint no longer contain lead additives these days. But their decades of popularity and use are cause for concern today. By best estimates, 1.2 million children in the United States showed elevated lead levels in their blood from 1999-2010. They probably weren’t sitting around eating paint chips as the common misconception suggests, but instead they were inadvertently inhaling it as dust. Lead paint testing is vital in finding if a building in Grand Prairie needs lead abatement to become safe.
Surfaces containing lead paint can be managed and sealed off or completely removed. Our lead risk assessors in Grand Prairie can help decide. There are paints and coverings that can seal off the problem paint, but removal is often the best option. We use special suits, negative air machines, HEPA sanders and seal off the area. Before, during and after the removal we use particulate machines that detect airborne lead, to be sure that we have removed the hazard entirely from your Grand Prairie building.
