Lead Paint Mitigation

Many homes built prior to 1978 used lead-based paint. The lead in the paint is a health risk, especially as the paint ages, because lead causes tissue failure when lead particles are absorbed into the body.

Remodeling increases the risk involved with lead paint, because it disturbs the paint, causing the dust to circulate throughout the air, where it spreads to a wider area and becomes available to be absorbed into the body through ingestion or inhalation.

Lead is particularly a health risk for children, whose developing bodies can suffer more extreme complications from lead exposure.

Blue Door Painters is an EPA certified contractor, trained and experienced in assessing lead risk and in containing dust during remodeling.  If your building was built before 1978, we will use our training to determine whether you have a lead risk, and to take all measures to free your home of lead and to protect your health.
