What is lead paint, and why is it dangerous?

Lead paint contains lead-based pigments that can pose serious health risks when it deteriorates, chips, or is sanded, releasing lead dust and fumes. Lead exposure can lead to health problems, especially in children and pregnant women, including developmental issues, learning disabilities, and behavioral disorders.

Is lead paint common in older homes in Calgary?

Yes, lead-based paint was commonly used in homes and buildings before 1978. If your property was built before this date, there is a higher likelihood of lead-based paint being present.

Why should I choose professional lead paint removal services over DIY methods?

Professional lead paint removal is essential because it requires specialized equipment, training, and knowledge of safety protocols. DIY methods can often lead to greater health risks due to inadequate containment and improper disposal practices.

What safety measures do you take during lead paint removal?

Our team follows strict safety guidelines, including proper containment of the work area, the use of personal protective equipment (PPE), HEPA filtration systems, and dust control measures to minimize lead dust exposure to occupants and the environment.

Do I need to vacate my property during lead paint removal?

In most cases, you may need to temporarily vacate the work area during lead paint removal to ensure your safety. Our team will work with you to minimize disruption and provide guidance on any necessary precautions.

Do you offer post-removal testing and certification?

Yes, after completing the removal process, we conduct post-removal testing to ensure that your property is free from lead contamination. We provide certification of compliance for your peace of mind.
