“We had dry rot to repair before repainting and were on a tight timeline. SFW met our deadline. On the job site, the painters were great, and their customer communication is a model of clarity and efficiency. SFW may not be the low bid, but the quality from top to bottom is worth every penny. I highly recommend!”

Esther L, Portland, Oregon

“We originally called SFW to fix some minor siding and wood rot. I was so impressed with their professionalism over the phone and in person, we chose them to paint the entire house. Their painters are very friendly and polite. We are very pleased with the results and highly recommend SFW Painting.”

Jim E, Portland, Oregon

“Great experience, from initial contact to final invoice payment. They were careful, considerate, thorough, and professional. Our estimate and work in progress accounting were fair, transparent, and responsive. I highly recommend SFW Painting for any interior painting job you may have.”

Linda F, Portland, Oregon

“SFW Painting is reliable and honest. We have used them for several projects at two different houses to fix water damage and many interior painting projects. They are very clear about what you should expect to pay, and they also accept credit cards. I will never use another painting or construction company again.”

Mallory B, Portland, Oregon

“SFW Painting did not try to oversell or scam. They took care of the job from start to finish and left the work areas clean. I have an old house, so they made sure to create containment areas to minimize lead paint dust. It might have cost a bit more than Joe Handyman, but they’ll do everything the right way.”

Mattison C, Portland, Oregon

We had some painting done at our home by David and Jimmy. They were very professional and courteous. Excellent work and I would recommend them in the future. In addition, Jay, the painting Manager was excellent, providing a face to face consultation and regular communications regarding our work tasks and scheduling.

The Toxicity of Lead Paint in Happy Valley

Lead paint is dangerous because when ingested it can cause a host of physical problems, including damage to the organs and brain, learning disabilities, memory problems, and seizures. Small children are at the highest risk of ingesting lead paint by putting paint chips or peels into their mouths; however, lead paint dust can also be breathed from doors and windows that repeatedly open and shut.

In 1978, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) outlawed the use of lead paint, and by 1991 they stated lead paint was the “number one environmental threat to the health of children in the United States.” However, lead paint is also very hazardous to adults as well because there is no safe level of lead exposure or blood lead concentration.

Lead paint contains lead, a metal that is known to be very toxic to humans and animals. When lead is ingested it can cause lead poisoning, which may result in a number of health problems, including internal organ and brain damage, seizures, unconsciousness, and, in high doses, death. Lead poisoning via lead paint is most well-known for its impacts upon children who are known to have suffered from learning disabilities and severe behavioral problems following lead exposure.

When paint gets old it begins to crack and chip, then fall to the floor surfaces of your home where children and animals may be prone to ingesting it. In the case of lead paint, this can result in lead poisoning. Lead paint is also inadvertently inhaled in the form of paint dust when old lead paint in doorways or window frames is disrupted through normal household use. For these reasons it’s a good idea to have your home checked for lead paint so that you can take precautions to safeguard your health and that of your family.

Lead Paint Inspection

Homes that were built after 1978 are not likely to have lead paint, but if your home was built before the EPA banned lead paint it’s a good idea to have your home inspected. SFW Painting provides expert Happy Valley lead paint removal services in which we evaluate all painted surfaces in your home – including the body, eves, accents, trim, and soffit – to ensure a comprehensive inspection. We examine the interior and exterior of your home as well as all layers of accumulated paint.
