Lead Abatement

Lead paint removal from a window

What is Lead Abatement?

Lead abatement is the process of identifying and removing lead-based paint and other sources of lead from homes and other residential buildings. This is important because lead is a toxic metal that can cause serious health problems, particularly in young children. Lead exposure can occur through the inhalation of lead dust or the ingestion of lead paint chips.

Alliance Environmental is a leading expert in lead abatement in the residential sector. With over 25 years of experience, we have the knowledge and skills to safely and effectively remove lead-based paint and other sources of lead from homes. We are fully licensed and certified, and trained by OSHA authorized trainers in our own on-site training facility.

Professional removing lead paint

Our Services Include:

  • Lead paint removal: We use specialized techniques and equipment to carefully remove lead paint from walls, ceilings, and other surfaces.
  • Lead dust cleanup: After lead paint is removed, we carefully clean up any remaining lead dust to ensure that your home is safe and healthy.
  • Lead-safe work practices: If you are planning to renovate or repair your home, we can help you implement lead-safe work practices to minimize the risk of lead exposure.

The federal government requires lead paint abatement contractors to gain certification and follow predetermined procedures. During abatement, contractors make the paint completely inaccessible or permanently remove it using techniques such as:

  • Encapsulation: Coating the surface of the lead paint entirely to seal it.
  • Enclosure: Putting a new surface over the old one with lead paint.
  • Removal: Using liquid paint removers and paint removal tools to eliminate lead paint.
  • Replacement: Removing and replacing anything with lead paint, such as windows and doors.

Our crews set up a containment area by installing poly sheeting, tacky mats and a negative pressure air machine. Our technicians have personal protective equipment, including fitted respirators, to keep themselves safe as they employ a HEPA filter vacuum to gather lead paint chips and dust. We keep the area sealed until everything has been removed.
