We were called in to an apartment in Pomona, California because of a positive test for lead in the ceiling after water from upstairs caused damage in the bedroom.

The team from Alliance Environmental Group removed the lead paint and damaged building materials and disposed of it all properly, without danger to themselves, the apartment residents or Krystle!

We expect our teams to send us even more great process photos of future projects. Thanks, Krystle! See you next time!
