Dangers of Lead-Based Paint

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.

Notable Lead Removal Projects

Airport Hangar — San Marcos, Texas
We handled the lead-based paint removal from the interior and exterior of the front and rear hangar doors at a facility that stores the famous Yellow Rose, a WWII B-25 Bomber. The hangar, built in 1940, serves as a museum, preserving WWII airplanes and artifacts, located on the San Marcos Airport campus. ARC finished work on the hangar doors, refurbished, repainted, and replaced all wood panels and window panes on time, wrapping up the project in November 2015.
Industrial Facility — Houston, Texas
We built a large containment area inside an industrial facility in downtown Houston. This large lead paint removal project was led by general manager Rick Rickels.
