LEAD PAINT REMOVAL
Lead-based paint was used on the inside and outside of homes and buildings before 1970. Today's paint can only contain trace amounts of lead if any at all. However, lead-based paint is still present in many homes, including those built after 1970, and exposure to this paint is a serious health issue. It is critical to understand whether sections of your home may have been painted with lead-based paint. When remodelling, refurbishing or repainting, lead-safe methods must be followed or your health and the health of your family may be harmed. As a result of lead exposure, the brain might be permanently damaged and intellectual growth can be hampered. The risk of lead exposure for children, as well as the health consequences of lead exposure, might vary depending on their surroundings, developmental stage, or behaviours. When it comes to lead exposure, children under the age of five are most at risk.
Lead-based paint may be found in many ancient buildings, posing serious health risks. The process of thoroughly and securely removing all lead-containing paints from a business or residential structure is known as lead paint removal. Leaking lead paint can be inhaled as it deteriorates, combined with dust and other household waste. This can result in lead poisoning. To remove the lead paint, we'll use a variety of procedures that are all focused on minimising danger. Lead in paint poses a considerable number of major health concerns if disturbed or discharged, and as such is governed by its own set of rules. Workplaces, where lead compounds are used, are the most prevalent source of lead exposure in Australia. After coming into touch with lead, workers may transport lead residues home on their work clothing, skin, hair, and equipment.

Get Rid of the Lead Paint in your home.
Lead paint was used in many Australian residences constructed before 1970, and it may still be used in some newer ones. Lead is still utilised in automobile and boat paint and surface treatments. Inhalation of lead dust and chips from flaking and peeling paint or remodelling operations can result in adults or children inhaling or ingesting the lead dust and chips. If the old paint coats are disturbed by hand or power equipment, even little quantities of lead can pose a severe health danger to both the occupants and any contractors.

What are the symptoms of lead exposure?
Lead exposure may have a variety of effects on individuals, and the symptoms might vary depending on the type of lead exposure received. It's possible that some toddlers or adults don't show any symptoms whatsoever. It is generally caused by recent exposure to high levels of lead in the environment. Seizures and even a coma are possible symptoms. An individual exposed to lead for a long time, even at tiny levels, may develop symptoms such as irritation, fatigue and loss of appetite. They may also develop learning impairments and behavioural issues as well as a lack of coordination and slow development.

A secure containment area will be set up for our workers, the same as they would for asbestos removal.

We make sure children, pregnant women, and pets are not in the area until the work has been completed and all lead paint residue has been removed.
