Lead is a toxic substance that can cause serious health problems, especially in young children and developing fetuses. Many people aren’t aware that their home may contain lead paint until symptoms start to occur. Exposure to lead paint can lead to lead poisoning, which can result in developmental delays, learning disabilities, behavioral problems, and other long-term health issues. Symptoms of lead poisoning in children can include, irritability, fatigue, abdominal pain, and difficulty learning.

The use of lead-based paint was banned by the Federal Government of the United States in 1978 by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. This was a significant step to reduce the risk of lead exposure in homes, however, the Department of Housing and Urban Development estimates that roughly 35 percent of U.S. homes contain some lead-based paint. If your home was built before 1978, there’s a 28% chance that you have lead paint in your home.

Renovations or repairs in homes can disturb lead paint, releasing lead dust and chips. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires that contractors follow specific guidelines to protect against lead exposure during such activities. Various regulations and laws, such as the EPA’s Renovation, Repair, and Painting (RRP) Rule and the Lead-Based Paint Hazard Reduction Act, govern the safe handling and disposal of lead-based paint.

Safer Home Services LLC is an EPA approved RRP Lead Paint Contractor and follows these specific guidelines in the renovation and repair of lead paint.

Lead paint deteriorates over time, producing lead dust and chips. This can settle on floors and soil posing a risk especially to young children who may ingest it through hand-to-mouth contact. Most individuals would not recognize lead dust as such, therefore it is recommended that you contact a company specifically trained in the detection and treatment of lead based paint and dust if you suspect that you have lead paint in your home.

Lead paint renovation services are essential for addressing the potential health risks associated with lead-based paint in older structures. These specialized services are designed to safely remove or encapsulate lead-based paint, minimizing the risk of lead exposure during renovation or remodeling projects. Skilled professionals use industry-standard practices to contain, remove, and dispose of lead-paint dust and debris, ensuring it doesn’t contaminate the environment. Moreover, these services often involve rigorous testing and assessment to determine the extent of lead contamination, followed by the development of a customized renovation plan. Whether it’s in residential, commercial, or industrial settings, lead paint renovation services help property owners and occupants maintain a safe and healthy living or working space while complying with legal requirements and regulations related to lead-based paint management.
