If your home was built before the 1980s, there is a good chance it contains lead. Lead paint was not banned until 1978, at which point the Environmental Protection Agency outlawed its use in residential painting. If you suspect your home may have been built with lead paint, your first move is to have a professional Mukilteo lead paint inspection. SFW Painting examines all layers of paint on the interior and exterior portions of your home, including the main body, trim, eaves, and soffit areas. We provide you with a scientific analysis that shows if you have lead paint in your home.
SFW Painting employs industry-wide best practices and proven strategies to remove the lead paint from your home and property in a way that is safe, effective, and reliable. Our core techniques entail UV scraping and electric paint shaving, in combination with hand scraping. To address difficult areas in which extraction is not safe, we employ a recognized process of lead paint encapsulation that seals the paint, providing a strong barrier between the paint and the environment.
