Lead-based paint is a major source of lead poisoning for children and can also affect adults. In children, lead poisoning can cause irreversible brain damage and can impair mental functioning. It can retard mental and physical development and reduce attention span. It can also retard fetal development even at extremely low levels of lead. In adults, it can cause irritability, poor muscle coordination, and nerve damage to the sense organs and nerves controlling the body.
Many homes built before 1978 contain lead-based paint. Removing lead paint improperly can increase dust resulting in greater health risks for you and your family. EPA Lead Certification is required for any renovation that disturbs more than 6 square feet of interior or 20 square feet of exterior lead paint in residential or child-occupied facilities built before 1978.
Lead-Based Paint Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) Rule requires that those engaged in RRP activities in homes or child-occupied facilities (such as childcare centers and kindergartens) built prior to 1978 be trained and certified in lead-safe work practices, and use these work practices to guard against lead contamination.
Commercial and Government buildings built before 1978 may contain lead-based paint. At ESS, we are certified to provide lead abatement services in commercial and government properties as well as residential properties. With our experience and expertise, we will work quickly to remove all lead-based paint hazards to ensure employee safety and get your business up and running as soon as possible.
Lead-based paint has regulations that should be adhered to assure compliance with state and local laws. Use a firm with experience, trained technicians, and the proper equipment to ensure the safety of people around the project and reduce the potential for exposure.
