Again lead paint is not something that a lot of people take to be common these days. Yet, we still happen to find it in many different homes or buildings. As we have said in other areas of the site the best way to figure out if you have any type of problem is to get our crew on the scene and actually give them a chance to provide a thorough inspection of the area. We really believe that this is the best way to ensure that there are no problems that you are going to need to worry about.
Can I Paint Over It?
In the homepage section about lead paint, we talked a little bit about how we believed that it was actually dangerous to want to just come in and paint over this lead paint. There are situations though where this can be done. It is really going to depend on where these areas are actually located within your home or building. A lot of times this is not something that we are going to tend to recommend though. As it can really be one of those solutions that basically comes up short. This is not something that we are going to want to have happening at any point in time!
How Do I Know That I Am Dealing With Lead Paint?
The first thing that we are going to want to consider is the age of the paint. Obviously then, this is an issue that is going to be more common in older homes. In the United States, for example, this type of paint was pretty much not produced as soon as the 1980s rolled around. Does this mean that if I have a newer home I am home free? It is likely, but there are still reports of this type of paint being used well into the ’90s and even more, it is really about just being safe.
This is without a doubt the most important part of our job. A lot of times when we are dealing with mold or in this case paint that we are going to want to remove it goes without saying that after the removal the area is not going to be looking pretty. What really determines the results that we are able to provide is how the area looks after we are gone! It should go without saying, but we are pretty big on making sure that we actually restore the area that we have removed.
As with most of these removal services that we provide we are going to suggest that you don’t try and handle them on your own. Even if at the end of the day you don’t give us a call directly. This can be an issue that can go south pretty quickly if it is not treated right. Our hope is that we will be able to handle the situation quickly and safely for all. We also offer water damage restoration service.
