Professional Lead-Based Paint Removal
Lead paint is an unfortunate artifact of the past that causes significant health problems in the present. Lead paint was not banned until 1978, so if your home was built before that date it may contain lead. And exposure to lead paint is known to cause lead poisoning. Fortunately, there is a solution in professional lead paint inspection and lead paint removal, processes which safeguard your health and update your home to a new level of safety.
High Caliber Lead Paint Inspection & Removal
SFW Painting is a certified Lead Safe Renovation Firm that has performed effective Renton lead paint inspection and removal for over a decade. To begin, we examine all layers of paint on the interior and exterior of your home to target the affected areas. Then we formulate a strategic plan to remove the lead paint using reliable and environmentally safe techniques such as electric paint shaving, UV scraping, lead paint encapsulation, and hand scraping. The end result is a home that has had all the dangerous lead paint removed and a fresh layer of new, safe paint applied.
Advanced Lead Paint Extraction & Safety Technologies
Our primary purpose in removing the lead paint from your Renton home is to make the living environment in your home safe, so you and your family can enjoy a more healthy life. That’s why we invest in state-of-the-art HEPA technologies to ensure that your home and property remain lead-free throughout and after our work. Our Festool Sander, Festool Shaver, and Festool Dust Extractor systems are equipped with HEPA-rated filtration to remove 100% of the lead dust particulates from your home. HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filters are regulated by the United States Department of Energy and represent the most powerful air filtration systems on the planet.
The Importance of Removing Toxic Lead from Your Home
The Environmental Protection Agency banned lead paint in 1978 because it was determined to cause developmental disabilities and behavioral problems in children as well as seizures, brain and nervous system impairments, and internal organ damage in adults. Removing the lead paint from your home ensures that you won’t expose yourself or your family to the possibility of lead poisoning.
Accidental Lead Paint Ingestion
Lead is ingested in a few ways. Most commonly, it is breathed in when lead paint dust particulates are released into the air through the use of doors and windows painted with lead paint. Children and animals may ingest lead paint when it peels, cracks, and crumbles to the floor. Adults are also susceptible to inadvertent lead paint that has settled upon household surfaces.
Great experience, from initial contact through to final invoice payment. Painters (Wendy & Max) were careful, considerate, thorough, and professional. The estimate and work in progress accounting was fair, transparent, and responsive. Highly recommended.
