In order to confirm the presence of lead paint in your home, we send samples of the paint to a third-party testing company on your behalf. Consider this a built-in second opinion about the paint — free from bias or cheap sales tactics. Once the paint is confirmed to contain lead, we will work with you to determine the best lead abatement strategy for your Folsom home. There are many options, and we want to employ the right one for your situation.
The two quickest ways to deal with lead paint that hasn’t deteriorated or started chipping is to encapsulate it in a protective coat of a paint-like substance that will prevent it from chipping. While this method might not be ideal for parts that get a lot of use — like doors or windowsills — it’s a good way to postpone totally removing the paint for a long time. The lead paint surfaces can also be enclosed in drywall, cordoning it off from the rest of your home.
In other cases, the encapsulation method won’t be effective enough for your Folsom residence. When this is the case, removing the paint must happen. Using a sandblaster on lead paint is not an option due to safety precautions, so at Banconn Enterprise, Inc., we use wet sanding or scraping methods, which are the only ways that have been approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). If removal isn’t an effective option either, the surfaces will have to be replaced and properly disposed of.
