LEAD PAINT REMOVAL

Lead Paint Removal in the West Covina, CA Area

First, let's start with the facts. Lead-based paint was used in more than 38 million homes in the United States. Lead paint was banned from residential use in the United States in 1978. Lead can affect children's brains and developing nervous systems and it is also harmful to adults. Anything that disturbs surfaces that were painted with lead paint can create dust and endanger you and your family, especially young children and pregnant women.

If you have a home that was built before 1978 we highly recommend that you don't take any unnecessary chances and get your home checked for the presence of lead paint. This is especially true if you have a home built before 1940, as more than 85% of homes built in that era were painted with lead-based paint.

If you have lead paint in your home, you do have options. If the surface is in something close to pristine condition and if you have no children in the home, you may be able to avoid all potential hazards with good maintenance and vigilance.

However, if the surfaces are not in good shape or if you have children in the house, or just want to eliminate the worry, abatement, often including full lead paint removal will be your best option. Your best bet will be to talk to a painting contractor with experience dealing with lead paint to help you make the decision that is best for you and your family. Brightview Painting has handled lead paint removal for many homeowners in the West Covina, CA area and will help you choose the option that will serve you best.

It is important to note that almost every state has different rules affecting lead paint remediation. Be sure to talk to a painting contractor with expertise in dealing with lead paint in your state to ensure that you follow local regulations.

Also, there are a number of projects that a do-it-yourself homeowner can take on and do well if they are willing to put in the time and effort. Lead paint abatement is not one of those projects. Please hire a professional and don't put your health and your family's health at risk.

If you do hire a contractor to perform lead paint removal or remediation there are some important steps that you'll want to make sure they follow. We recommend having a good conversation with the painting contractor about these three things before they start the work:

  • First, you'll want to be sure they plan to fully contain the work area.
  • Ask about how they plan to deal with the lead. Methods that minimize dust are highly recommended.
  • Finally, you'll want to make sure that they plan to clean up thoroughly, leaving no debris or dust.

If you believe you might have lead paint to deal with in your home, or if you know you need lead paint removal services in West Covina, Glendora, Duarte, San Dimas, Hacienda Heights or a neighboring area, give the experts at Brightview Painting a call at 626-502-4798 or request a free estimate via our web form.

  • I highly recommend Brightview Painting for residential and commercial services. I used them for both. Each experience was excellent. The crew arrives on time and is professional and hardworking. They kept the property clean and went above and beyond to not disrupt your life while doing their work. Especially at our business, we had unusual hours in which they could come to paint so that we did not have to close to get this work done. Brightview accommodated our needs and made sure the did not affect our customers or the flow of our business. Both projects ended with wonderful results!
