Lead Abatement

Lead is a highly toxic metal and it is all around us. Lead was used for many years in paints and other products found in and around our homes. Lead-based paint and lead contaminated dust are the main sources of exposure for lead. Lead-based paints were banned for use in housing in 1978 yet 40% of the homes in the US still contain lead based paint.

Lead is dangerous to children and adults but it is important every parent know that children six years old and under are more at risk to the health hazards associated with lead exposure. 

The good news is lead poisoning is entirely preventable when you know what to look for and what to do.

 

Edge Environmental provides the most up-to-date lead-based paint removal services. Our qualified professional technicians work carefully and thoroughly to remove the hazardous portions of lead paint from your home in order to restore a safe environment for you and your children, or from your government or commercial site to make it safe for workers and the public.

Edge Environmental performs all of our services using the safest techniques. We put up critical barriers around the site to prevent any toxic particles from spreading beyond the work area, and we dispose of all materials strictly according to EPA rules and regulations. In fact, all of our work is performed in accordance with, and in most cases exceeds, standards set by EPA and OSHA.

As of April 22, 2010, the EPA requires all renovators to be RRP certified who plan to work in homes built before 1978 and disrupt more than six square-feet of lead paint. If you are not planning to remodel but are still concerned about the lead content in your building’s interior or exterior, call Edge Environmental to schedule a free consultation. We will help you determine whether your home’s paint is creating a hazard, and provide removal services if necessary.
