LEAD PAINT REMOVAL

Lead Paint Removal in the Virginia Beach, VA 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. Randy Overacre Painting Company Inc. has handled lead paint removal for many homeowners in the Virginia Beach, VA 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.

  • Randy Overacre Painting just finished painting my house, this is the third home I have had the paint. This time I actually had them paint my cabinets and they look PHENOMINAL!!!! They also did the epoxy coating on garage floors. The employees are beyond impressive and very honest. I left $30 on the stairs by accident and one of the painters called my cell phone to tell me he found it and left it in a drawer for me.
