Lead Abatement Process
Lead abatement means any measure or set of measures designed to permanently eliminate lead-based paint hazards. Lead abatement can include removal of lead-based paint and dust, the permanent enclosure or encapsulation of lead-based paint, or the replacement of lead-painted surfaces or fixtures.
The process of removing lead may be a reality because lead paint was a common element used in older homes. If you are a weekend warrior in the process of renovating your home or a company CEO signing off on updating your office building, this is especially news. Federal law regarding lead paint removal was changed in April 2010. As a result, contractors who performed painting, repair and renovation projects that disrupted lead-based paint in structures including homes, child care facilities and schools built before 1978 were required to be certified. Additionally, they were required to follow specific best practices to stop lead contamination. Common sources for lead poisoning that require lead paint remediation include:
- Peeling, chipping, chalking, or cracking of lead paint
- Lead paint on surfaces, which children may chew on or often come into contact with
- Lead paint on surfaces that get lots of wear including windows, window sills, doors, door frames, stairs, stair rails, hardwood floors, porches, or fences
- Lead in soil around buildings or houses
