How Is Lead Paint Removed from Woodland Hills Buildings?
There are a few methods used to remove lead-based paint. The most affordable method involves the application of a coating, rather than completely removing the paint. This process, known as encapsulation, involves the application of a coating that creates a watertight seal over the lead-based paint. This protective coating keeps the paint from peeling and chipping, to minimize surface contact with it.
People on a tight budget may wish to simply cover the lead paint with wallpaper to new drywall. They may cover window sills and trim with aluminum or vinyl. This is a temporary fix, as the lead paint will be exposed once again when these coverings are removed. Of course, peeling or of the wallpaper or inadequate coverage of the materials can put children at risk. In addition, resale of your home may be difficult if you have not properly addressed lead paint.
Total Removal is the most complete (and the most expensive, short of removing walls and doors and replacing with new products) method to eradicate lead paint in Woodland Hills. A contractor who is certified in lead paint removal will scrape the lead paint with liquid paint removers. They may sand the surface using a wet sanding method and then vacuum the particles using a HEPA vacuum to ensure all particles are safely removed.

WHAT CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING:
★★★★★ - "I can't recommend these guys highly enough. Chico and George water-proofed our deck, sealed and painted some windows that were leaking, painted our garage and did maintenance on the doors, even took care of some handyman tasks. Every job was done competently and promptly and at a fair price. What more can you ask?"
