SFW Painting is a certified Lead Safe Renovation Firm that has conducted professional lead paint inspection and lead paint removal in Snoqualmie and throughout the Northwest for over a decade. We can help you find out if your older or historic home contains lead paint and if so, formulate an effective and affordable strategy to remove it. Our lead paint inspection involves examining all layers of paint in the interior and exterior of your home. When lead paint is found, our Snoqualmie lead paint removal entails state-of-the-art techniques, including UV scraping, electric paint shaving, and lead paint encapsulation. Because lead paint is so toxic, removing it from your home is best accomplished by trained experts with experience in lead paint removal.
In 1978 the Environmental Protection Agency banned the use of lead paint in residential construction because it was found to cause developmental disorders, learning disabilities and behavioral problems in children. Lead paint also causes anemia, seizures, internal organ damage, and brain and nervous system impairments in adults. According to the World Health Organization, in 2017 a million people died from lead poisoning and over 24 million suffered serious health problems from exposure to lead paint. But this is a problem that can be avoided!
