If you think your home may have been constructed with lead paint, it’s a good idea to have it inspected. SFW Painting performs lead paint inspections by examining all layers of paint on the interior and exterior of your home, including the main body, trim, soffit, eves, and accent areas. Our Issaquah lead paint removal process utilizes only environmentally sustainable methods, including lead paint encapsulation, UV scraping, electric paint shaving, and hand scraping. We never use harmful chemicals and utilize advanced technologies to ensure your home and property are 100% lead-free.
In 1978 the Environmental Protection Agency banned the use of lead paint in residential painting after finding that it caused developmental disorders, learning disabilities, and behavioral problems in children. However, lead paint can also cause lead poisoning in adults, with adverse reactions such as internal organ damage, seizures, anemia, brain, and nervous system impairments and, in high doses, death. For these reasons, it’s a great idea to make sure your home does not contain lead and, if it does, to have it removed.
