Lead Paint Removal Brisbane
Why is lead paint so dangerous?
Lead paint becomes a danger to people and animals when the paint gets damaged or disturbed. Lead is a toxic substance that can affect people of all ages, and it is especially harmful to children, pregnant women and unborn babies.
Once lead enters the body, it accumulates and can pose a health hazard over time. Home renovators are in the most danger, as lead dust and paint chips can remain in the home and garden for years after work has been completed.
How can I tell if my home or business has lead paint?
It is important to remember that lead based paint cannot be identified by its appearance, which is why it is important to test all surfaces and layers of paint on older properties, prior to removal. Prior to 1970, many paints contained high levels of lead, which is why it is important to test the paint on older properties.
