SFW Painting Specializes in Lead Paint Removal
If you own a house that was built before 1978 it may contain lead paint, which is a known health hazard and can cause lead poisoning. Lead paint ingestion can lead to a range of health problems, including internal organ damage, nervous system and brain impairment, seizures and even death. In children, lead paint ingestion can result in learning disabilities and behavioral problems.
SFW Painting provides professional Gresham lead paint inspections that conclusively determine if your home has lead paint. During our inspection, we examine all layers of paint in both interior and exterior surfaces, including the trim, accents, eves, and soffit. If lead paint is discovered, we can perform a thorough Gresham lead paint, removal service that removes the dangers of lead paint so your home is a healthy place for you and your family.
Why is Lead Paint so Dangerous to Human Health?
You may wonder how lead paint can pose such a drastic health risk. I mean, it just sits there on the wall, right? The problems with lead paint tend to occur as your home ages and the paint begins to crack, peel and crumble in chips to the floor – where small animals and pets can ingest it. But this isn’t the only way lead paint can be dangerous. Over time, through repeated use, lead paint on doors and windows will wear down and be emitted into the air as fine dust particulates – which we inadvertently ingest merely through breathing.
Although we might not talk about it much these days, lead is a toxic heavy metal and very dangerous to human health – the Environmental Protection Agency claims that no amount of lead ingestion is safe. In fact, the EPA banned the use of lead paint in residential and commercial construction in 1978. Therefore, it is wise to remove all the lead paint from your home to create a healthy and safe environment.
