Lead abatement is all about removing the health problem potential of coatings containing lead compounds.
Remove the lead – remove the problem?
The removal system must also incorporate the safe capture of all of the surface coating. Removing the lead often exposes the base and primer coating, usually pure lead paint. Sanding or blasting of this residue into the environment is illegal and is dangerous.
Captive systems, sump and containment of residue removal, monitoring of pH levels, and separation of effluent and consolidation of solids can be designed for the specific requirements of each contract.
Disposal of waste material is through licensed dumpers or with approved sites.
