While lead paint is no longer sold or used, it still exists in older homes. It poses a threat to children especially, as it contains toxic materials. Ingestion of any amount of lead can prove to be dangerous, especially for younger, developing brains. This video will give a detailed look at a lead removal project.
Lead paint is usually trapped under many layers of new paint jobs and demolition will be necessary.
It is essential to close off the area where lead is present. You do not want it to spread throughout the rest of the home or into the environment. A special air filtration system is used during the project to protect the workers. Once the workers are protected, they loosen and then remove the toxic walls, window sills, and wherever the paint may have been used. Cleaning up the plaster is key as you want to avoid any remaining particles in the home. .
