Lead Paint Removal and More for the Boulder Building
Lead paint Remediation Techniques Include
Removal: Boulder’s most popular method of lead remediation is lead paint removal. When our tests have been run and test positive for lead in your Boulder building, we can conduct lead paint removal through sanding, wire brushing, or liquid paint remover. Cherry Inc. in Boulder assists our clients to help them understand the process and duration of our lead paint removal, and we will always try and cause as little damage as possible during the abatement process. Replacement –When lead paint removal isn’t the solution for you, replacement is a viable option for our Boulder clients. This abatement process involves removing and replacing the lead-contaminated surfaces of your Boulder home with new units. This is an extreme version of the lead paint removal process but has the advantage of starting over fresh for the Boulder homeowners and business owners whose surfaces won’t survive other types of lead paint removal.
Encapsulation –To fix the threat of lead paint in your Boulder home without going through with lead paint removal involves two other methods. One of these is encapsulation where the existing paint is coated with a long-lasting, paint-like substance. This solution is not permanent, and abrasion over time will make the people in your Boulder building at risk. However, this is a great solution for smaller, simpler issues for the client in Boulder who don’t want more intensive processes of lead paint removal.
Enclosure –The other method of lead paint abatement that does not require lead paint removal is the enclosure. The lead-containing area of your Boulder building will be sectioned off by drywall or another material. The drawback with enclosure is that the lead paint stays on the surfaces and must be handled again if the enclosing surface needs to be taken down or sustains damage. Enclosure is an “out of sight, out of mind” solution to lead paint removal for the Boulder client.
