lead abatement
Lead is a metal highly resistant to corrosion, extensively used in the construction industry for its properties. Lead is poisonous and rapidly absorbed in to the blood stream and is believed to cause adverse side effects to the central nervous systems (especially in young children), the kidneys, the immune system, the cardiovascular system ; causing brain and blood disorders and many other health effects according to scientists. The concerns about lead’s roles in health effects are very extensive.

Up to the mid-1980s lead was extensively used in many products like paint, including households. Older houses may still contain substantial amounts of lead paint and as a result the paint should never be stripped by sanding, as this produces inhalable lead containing dust. Lead is as a hazardous material classified under Designated Substances, regulated under the Health and Safety Act. Its presence in your building can represent a potential future liability.
