SFW Painting Specializes in Lead Paint Removal
If you live in an older home, built before 1978, there’s a good chance lead paint was used during its construction. Although it was initially thought to be safe, in the 1970s lead paint was recognized to be extremely hazardous to human health, causing a slew of problematic symptoms – ranging from abdominal pain and memory loss to impaired nervous system function and damage to organs and the brain. As such, it is very important to have your older home inspected for lead paint, and if lead paint is found to have it removed by a professional Canby lead paint removal specialist. SFW Painting can help.

Mixed with good old-fashioned hand scraping, we provide a complete lead paint removal process that transforms your home into a safer and healthier place for you and your family.
Lead Paint Inspection & Removal Process
The procedure of home lead paint removal is comprehensive. It entails inspecting all painted surfaces of your home for lead – this includes the accents, eves, and soffit as well as the body and trim. We also examine the exterior and interior of your home and test all layers of accumulated paint, not just the surface layer, to ensure your home is lead-free.
Why is an intensive approach so important?
If the paint on your home stays fresh and new forever, the ingredients might not matter so much. But paint breaks down over time, chips, peels and becomes crushed into dust that can be inhaled. When this happens, you and your family, especially small children, are at risk of ingesting the corroding lead paint – which can make you very sick.
Developing a Successful Lead Paint Removal Strategy
We want to make lead paint removal affordable and stress-free for you, and strive to create a collaborative strategy that aligns well with your schedule and monetary concerns. An additional benefit of working with SFW Painting is that we are a subsidiary of SFW Construction LLC, a full-scale general contractor that can provide expert repairs and restoration to the structure and/or siding of your home if dry rot or structural decay is discovered during the lead paint removal process. Having this option carries the extra benefit of saving you time, money, and hassle.
