These are all safe, leading and effective methods that can be used to remove lead-based paint.
Our team is trained and certified for lead-based paint removal and we routinely perform medical monitoring of our team members to ensure their safety and health. With lead abatement licenses in nearly every U.S. state, ARC follows the Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) guidelines and is ready to remediate your project, no matter the size.
According to HUD: Lead is a highly toxic metal that may cause a range of health problems, especially in young children. When lead is absorbed into the body, it can cause damage to the brain and other vital organs, like the kidneys, nerves, and blood. Lead may also cause behavioral problems, learning disabilities, seizures, and in extreme cases, death. Some symptoms of lead poisoning may include headaches, stomachaches, nausea, tiredness, and irritability.
Deteriorated lead-paint mixes with dust and soil and can become tracked into everyday spaces. The danger from lead paint increases when it’s peeling, otherwise deteriorating, or non-professionally removed which can lead to the inhalation of lead dust.

We make workplace safety our highest priority and provide comprehensive and ongoing safety training to all of our field personnel and management.
