SFW Painting Specializes in Lead Paint Removal

Any home built before 1978 may have been painted with lead paint, a known hazard to human health. If you are unsure about whether lead paint was used in your home, the best course of action is to schedule an in-home lead paint inspection. If your home contains lead paint, the next step is to schedule a thorough lead paint removal service that will extract and encapsulate the lead paint and upgrade your home to current safety standards.

Health Problems Associated with Lead Paint

Lead paint contains lead – a toxic heavy metal that is highly volatile and corrosive to living beings. Ingestion of lead paint leads to significant learning disabilities and behavioral problems in children, as well as organ damage, anemia, brain and nervous system debilitation, seizures, unconsciousness and even death in adults. The Environmental Protection Agency banned the use of lead paint in residential construction in 1978, claiming that no amount of lead ingestion is safe to human health.

How Lead Paint is Ingested

As homes age and paint peels and cracks, children and small pets are apt to ingest pieces of lead paint that have fallen to the floor. Adults and children can ingest lead paint through breathing the fine paint dust particulates that are emitted into the air through repeated use of windows and doors that have been painted with lead paint.

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.
