SAFE LEAD PAINT REMOVAL
SAFE LEAD PAINT REMOVAL
Austracoat is a certified painting company in lead paint removal. If you own a home or building that was built before 1970 chances are you may have some form of lead paint in it. Our experts can safely provide the removal of lead paint from your business or home.
The most common places to find lead paint are on window frames, walls, and the outside of your house. If that paint is bubbling or peeling, you could have a problem. Chips of the lead paint can be accidentally ingested causing lead poisoning.
LEAD POISONING CAN CAUSE SERIOUS HEALTH PROBLEMS
Lead poisoning can cause serious health problems that affect the brain, kidneys, blood cells, and central nervous system. In extreme cases, it can even cause death. Unborn and young children are especially vulnerable to the effects of lead poisoning because their brains and nervous systems are still developing. They can suffer from behavior problems, lower IQ levels and delays in both mental and physical development. While lead poisoning can be treated if found early, any damage that it has caused is not reversible. Lead paint poisoning can occur over months and even years of exposure. The removal of lead paint is necessary to avoid these long-term health issues. Symptoms of lead poisoning can include abdominal pain, sleep issues, aggressive behavior, irritability, fatigue, memory loss, and kidney dysfunction. If you suspect someone may have lead poisoning, call your doctor immediately.
