Using abrasive blasting applications, our trained onsite and mobile technicians can remove lead paint safely to ensure that no further contaminates are present on your company’s premises.
The Dangers of Lead Paint
There are many homes in Melbourne that were built before 1970. Those homes usually were painted with lead paint. Lead paint, due to its toxicity, was banned in Australia in 1970.
Even low levels of lead poisoning in the blood can cause learning difficulties, stunted growth, and behavioural issues.
Exposure to lead can also cause weakness in one’s muscles, vomiting, and headaches.
Removing Lead Paint
It is important that any contractor you hire to do this work is highly trained and experienced in the techniques of how to remove lead paint.
Inexperienced contractors who are not trained in lead paint removal can actually cause more exposure to everyone in the facility as they try to carry out the removal. It is important that the dust created be contained as it is removed.
At WASP, we are experienced and highly trained in the removal of lead paint. We pride ourselves in creating a job environment that is safe for our clients both during the work and after our work has been completed.
The Process of Removing Lead Paint
- We test for lead
- We seal off the areas in which lead paint is present as well as the vents
- We utilize wet scraping and sanding which keeps more lead dust from forming
- We use chemicals to strip paint where it is not safe to use wet scraping and sanding
As onsite and mobile sandblasting specialists, we take our job very seriously as well as a great pride and care in our work in the removal of lead paint within the industrial and commercial industry in Melbourne.
We would be happy to help you rid your commercial, industrial, domestic or residential buildings of the dangers of lead paint.
