We had a plumbing issue that required lead abatement in our bathroom ceramic tile. Alliance was onsite for the abatement immediately after the lead test came back positive and worked professionally and efficiently to remove the tile and insulate our living area from any possible contamination. Highly recommended. All staff involved were professional and took proper PPE precautions in this time of COVID.

Why Is Lead Paint So Dangerous?

In 1978, the federal government enacted a ban on lead paint for consumers, recognizing the potential hazards it presented. Many homes built before 1978 used lead paint. Exposure to this type of paint can cause many problems, though the symptoms can be subtle. They’re most likely to present in children. The signs of lead paint exposure include:

Irritability or mood disorders.
Abdominal pain.
Headaches.
Difficulty learning.

Short-term effects of lead paint exposure may include loss of appetite, weight loss, muscle and joint pain, and fatigue. Long-term effects of lead paint exposure include hearing loss, seizures, premature births by pregnant women and abnormal sperm counts for men.

Where Is Lead Paint Commonly Found?

You will most likely find lead paint in your home on areas such as:

Doors and frames
Windows and windowsills
Banisters, railings and stairs
Porches

How Do I Know If My Building Uses Lead Paint?

If your home or office was built before 1978, it may have lead paint. The older the structure is, the more likely it is to have it. You will need to get a risk assessor or certified lead-based paint inspector to run tests to determine for sure whether you have lead paint and need removal service.

 

Can You Remove Lead Paint Yourself?

It is possible but unwise to try to remove lead paint yourself. Professionals know exactly what to do, whereas you may not remove all of the paint from your home or office if you attempt to do it yourself. You could also remove it improperly and spread the problem.

Your safety depends on proper lead paint removal.

What Does Lead Paint Abatement Involve?

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.

How Long Does It Take to Remove Lead Paint?

The length of the project depends on how much lead paint you have to remove. It could take a few days or a few weeks. The cost of lead paint removal also depends on how much of it is present in your space.

Being RRP (renovation, repair, and painting) certified isn’t enough.

As a certified lead removal contractor, Alliance:

– Builds negative air pressure containments to protect every job site.
– Utilizes PPE for every technician
– Runs daily exposure assessments for workers
– Conducts yearly blood monitoring for our crews
