We understand that lead-based paint can be a hazard to occupants and construction workers, so we take great care in every step of the removal process.
Our first step is to evaluate the physical condition of the building and determine the extent of the lead paint contamination. Our professional lead removal experts examine all surfaces and layers to identify lead appearance in residential, commercial and industrial sites. We take time and give a close look to evaluate paint coating to determine lead-based paint existence and create tailored plans according to each property owner's individual needs. Our trusted lead abatement contractors complete the assessment process initially with test kits and, if needed, with the help of accredited laboratories listed by WorkSafe in the town.

With the best knowledgeable and accredited employee, we always use the safest removal methods, including scraping, chemical strippers, wet hand sanding, low-temperature heat process and dry power sanding with HEPA vacuum attachment sanding to strip lead paint. Before starting lead removal, we set up the site properly to avoid all kind of risk and hazards. Our highly trained professionals usually start working with exterior and end with the interior. With double plastic sheets, we wrap up the total area where needed; thus, lead dust can't get exposed. A thorough clean-up and disposal of lead-contaminated waste is part of Priority One Coatings service. Our lead-base paint removal contractors take every necessary safety precaution to ensure that both our workers and the occupants of the building are protected from exposure through the whole lead removal process.

If the swab gives a negative result, but the age of the house indicates that it is possible to use lead paint, you can have it tasted by professionals.
