Removing Lead Paint From Homes in Seaside, Oregon
Homes built before 1978 may contain 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. Once we test for lead paint and it is confirmed, 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 Risks Associated With Lead-Based Paint
Lead is 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.
Lead Paint Ingestion
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.
SFW from start to finish on my two decks were exemplary. Alex and Bryan supervised their team and were kind, professional and kept me in the loop every step. They were also very clean and timely. I highly recommend this company for any of your construction needs.
Greg and team did a great job of managing the project. Work was done in a timely and efficient manner and communications were clear and professional. Any follow up items were quickly addressed and I am very pleased with the paint work that was done.
