Idaho Falls Lead Abatement & Removal

For decades, lead was one of the most common material ingredients in a number of different manufacturing applications. Notably, lead was a key ingredient in a number of paints used all the way up through the mid-1970s due to its ability to radically improve color quality and durability in paint products. If your property was built before this period, there is a chance that some or even all of the rooms in your home may still contain lead-based paint beneath additional coatings installed over the top. These lead-based paints can cause tremendous harm to your health, particularly the health of the elderly or any young children.

How Can Abatement Services Help You Today?

Does My Home Have Lead-Based Paint?

Lead-based paint was used in homes all the way up until 1978, so any structures built before that date may still contain lead-based paint. This is true for both homes and commercial buildings alike where the walls have been painted. As long as this paint remains on the walls, it isn’t inherently harmful. However, this paint can come off the walls as a result of something as simple as pushing in a thumbtack or driving in a screw.

Prevalence of Lead-Based Paint in Older Homes

  • 87% of homes built before 1940 with original drywall likely still have lead-based paint
  • 69% of homes built between 1941 and 1959 contain lead-based paint
  • 24% of homes built between 1960 and 1978 contain lead-based paint
  • A small percentage of homes built up through the early 1990s may still have received lead-based paint

While a ban on lead-based paint manufacturing went into place in 1978, many painters who loved the quality of lead-based paints stocked up on them because the ban did not cover installing paints that already existed. For this reason, homes and businesses built as late as the early 1990s may have still received lead-based paint from a painter who was still utilizing these products.

Other Household Sources of Lead

Your walls weren’t the only features of your home to receive lead-based paint during the 20th century—other features you may not even think of might have been coated with lead-based paint. For example, windows and window sills often utilized lead-based paints due to their ability to withstand abuse from the sun and incoming heat. Doors and door frames were typically painted with lead-based paint in order to hold their color against the elements. Stairs, railings, and banisters also received lead-based paint due to its ability to remain in good condition in a high-touch capacity.

Abatement Services offers thorough lead testing and removal services to help keep you safe by removing this potentially toxic substance from your property.
