SFW Painting Specializes in Lead Paint Removal

Lead paint removal is a complex procedure that must be accomplished by trained technicians who know how to do the job correctly. SFW Painting is accredited and licensed as a Lead-Safe Renovation Firm and is fully equipped and experienced to conduct lead paint removal projects of any kind and size. Seattle lead paint removal requires a high level of skill because lead paint is a destructive substance that must be removed thoroughly, leaving your home more habitable and safe.

SFW Painting employs reliable and secure lead paint removal techniques, with emphasis on environmentally sensitive methods such as electric paint shaving, UV Scraping, and lead paint encapsulation. We incorporate these techniques with good old-fashioned hand scraping strategies to provide an environmentally sustainable and fully effective lead paint removal process that uses no harmful chemicals.

The Dangers of Lead Paint

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) banned the use of lead paint in 1978 as it was recognized to be a seriously hazardous substance. It is especially problematic with children – for whom even low levels of ingestion can lead to learning disabilities and associated behavioral problems, while high levels of ingestion can cause poisoning, resulting in an impaired nervous system and brain functions as well as anemia. Ingestion of lead paint typically happens when the paint is chipping or flaking, crushed or broken into dust and inhaled.

in 1991 the EPA claimed lead paint was the “number one environmental threat to the health of children in the United States.” It’s a high stake risk to live in a home in which you don’t know if your child is safe. Basically, no level of lead exposure or blood lead concentration is said to be safe, so it is really for the best to have your home inspected for this potential danger.

“We had dry rot to repair before repainting and were on a tight timeline. SFW met our deadline. On the job site, the painters were great, and their customer communication is a model of clarity and efficiency. SFW may not be the low bid, but the quality from top to bottom is worth every penny. I highly recommend!”

Esther L, Portland, Oregon

“We originally called SFW to fix some minor siding and wood rot. I was so impressed with their professionalism over the phone and in person, we chose them to paint the entire house. Their painters are very friendly and polite. We are very pleased with the results and highly recommend SFW Painting.”

Jim E, Portland, Oregon

“Great experience, from initial contact to final invoice payment. They were careful, considerate, thorough, and professional. Our estimate and work in progress accounting were fair, transparent, and responsive. I highly recommend SFW Painting for any interior painting job you may have.”

Linda F, Portland, Oregon

“SFW Painting is reliable and honest. We have used them for several projects at two different houses to fix water damage and many interior painting projects. They are very clear about what you should expect to pay, and they also accept credit cards. I will never use another painting or construction company again.”

Mallory B, Portland, Oregon

“SFW Painting did not try to oversell or scam. They took care of the job from start to finish and left the work areas clean. I have an old house, so they made sure to create containment areas to minimize lead paint dust. It might have cost a bit more than Joe Handyman, but they’ll do everything the right way.”

Mattison C, Portland, Oregon

We had some painting done at our home by David and Jimmy. They were very professional and courteous. Excellent work and I would recommend them in the future. In addition, Jay, the painting Manager was excellent, providing a face to face consultation and regular communications regarding our work tasks and scheduling.

Why Should I Have My Home Evaluated for Lead Paint?

If your home was built before 1978 it could have lead paint. The only way to know for sure whether you are living with this toxic substance is to have your home inspected by a licensed Seattle lead paint removal specialist such as SFW Painting. Inspecting your home for paint must entail a comprehensive evaluation of all painted surfaces, including the body, trim, eaves, soffit, and accents areas of your home. Both the exterior and interior of your home must be evaluated for lead paint, as well as all the layers of paint that have been applied to every area of your home, not only the surface coat.

Developing an Effective Lead Paint Removal Strategy

The benefits of lead paint removal are centered around getting rid of a highly toxic and hazardous substance that can cause serious debilitating health problems, especially for children. This benefit is the main reason for hiring a lead paint removal service such as SFW Painting. However, the other benefit is having your home freshly painted by a professional painting company with a great reputation for high-quality work. In other words, in addition to the service of lead paint removal, you also get all the benefits that come with having your home painted.

We understand that a comprehensive lead paint inspection and removal process can be costly, so we do everything we can to work with your budget and devise a plan that works for you. Our main concern is helping you find peace of mind in a home that is guaranteed to be lead-free. Even if it takes some time to accomplish, it’s always worth it in the end.
