There's no question about it: lead is dangerous. Of course, we didn't always know that. Up until the late 70s, people in the US commonly used lead paint in their homes and buildings. The US government outlawed lead paint in 1978, but many of the homes and buildings we see today still have their original lead paint. The EPA recommends that property owners test their properties that were built before 1978. However, even if your property was built a few years after that date, it's a good idea to check, just in case. People don't always follow regulations, after all, and some decorators may have had a few extra cans of lead paint lying around after it was outlawed. Is there a chance that your home or building could have lead paint? Let GilRay Restoration Services, Inc. help you find out.
The possibility of lead paint is a scary one. If you may have a lead paint problem on your hands, then you need an excellent team to help. GilRay Restoration is that team. We know that you want what's best for your family's, employees', or students' health. We're here to help you keep your property safe.
Don't try to tackle a lead paint problem on your own. Like we said above, lead paint is dangerous. If you try to deal with it without the right tools and safety equipment, you'll risk accidentally breathing in paint chips and getting sick as a result.
It's not just the removal that should be left to the professionals, though. Even the testing process requires training and know-how. There are a few home testing kits on the market for lead paint, but those kits are unreliable. Many of them produce false negatives, giving homeowners a misguided sense of security when their health could still be at risk. Furthermore, these tests only measure lead in the surface paint level. If your home's deepest paint levels contain lead, a home test would have no way of detecting it.
The only reliable lead paint tests are the ones that come from professional services. Thankfully, GilRay Restoration has premium reliable tools that detect lead paint with complete accuracy. If our detectors show a negative, you can rest assured that it's a real negative and your property is safe from lead.
