Asbestos & Lead Abatement

Professional, Reliable Asbestos And Lead Abatement

Asbestos, once used in spray-applied flame retardants, thermal system insulation, and a variety of other materials, has since been found a very hazardous substance. Asbestos can still be found in many old materials, including acoustic ceilings, linoleum and vinyl tiles, stucco, drywall, heating and air conditioning ducts, pipe insulation, and more. Years of research have shown that exposure to asbestos can cause cancers and other diseases, including mesothelioma and asbestosis. The asbestos abatement process can be extremely hazardous and must be handled with proper safety measures and the utmost care.

Lead is a highly toxic metal and a very strong poison. Lead poisoning is a serious and sometimes fatal condition that occurs when lead builds up in the body. It can cause severe mental and physical impairment. Young children are most vulnerable because their brains and nervous systems are still developing. Lead poisoning can be treated, but any damage caused cannot be reversed.

Common sources of lead include:

  • House paint made before 1978
  • Toys and household items painted before 1976
  • Toys made and painted outside the United States
  • Bullets, curtain weights, and fishing sinkers made of lead
  • Pipes and sink faucets, which can contaminate drinking water
  • Soil polluted by car exhaust or chipping house paint
  • Paint sets and art supplies
  • Jewelry, pottery, and lead figures
  • Storage batteries
  • Kohl or kajal eyeliners
  • Some traditional ethnic medicines
