Homes that were constructed in the early 20th century were often made with lots of hardwood flooring; however, over time, many homeowners have decided to paint the hardwood floors. Nearly a century after being constructed, many older homes have multiple layers of paint – some of which may be lead paint and some enamel paint.
Homeowners who want to have their floors restored to the original wood finish will need to have all these layers of paint removed. SFW Painting is highly skilled at removing lead paint from floors using the Festool HEPA Sander and Festool HEPA Dust Extractor systems. Used in conjunction, these two HEPA machines provided extremely efficient extraction of all paint particulates from the floor. In essence, the HEPA equipment ensures that no dangerous lead dust particulates are released into the air or settle onto your home surfaces.
It’s very important to be careful in removing lead paint because it is known to cause lead poisoning, which can lead to a host of health problems, including nervous system and brain impairment, as well as developmental and behavioral problems in children. The HEPA systems ensure the highest levels of dust particulate removal that is possible. SFW Painting is dedicated to ensuring your safety while remodeling your home.
