Lead Paint Abatement
Lead-based paint is a common hazardous surface material in the built environment.
Lead additives were mixed into paints for its functional advantages including superior moisture resistance, durability and faster drying times. However, the health implications from lead exposure/ poisoning were far more of a concern than benefits of the heavy metal additive, therefore resulting in the banned use by the U.S Government of Lead Paint in 1978.
Lead exposure leads to multiple health issues including;
- Convulsions, coma and death.
- Permanent damage to the nervous system and vital organs.
- Physical and mental development issues in infants and children.

Asbestos is the given name for a fibrous mineral that was used as a functional component in a variety of building materials, mainly because of its exceptional ability to resist fire, heat and electricity. Materials containing Asbestos include drywall, tiles (floor and ceiling), insulation, glazing, ductwork, roof shingles, adhesives and over 5000 other building materials.
However, as more data became available of health hazards associated with Asbestos, the requirement to safely remove and dispose of materials with Asbestos became a priority.
Asbestos has uniquely shaped particles that cling to tissues in the lungs when airborne and inhaled. Over time it leads to serious health issues such as;
- Lung Cancer
