Lead-based paint can be found in houses built before 1980. Renovation in homes where lead paint is found is one of the greatest causes of childhood lead poisoning. Many homes with lead-based paint are occupied by families with children under the age 6. Children at the age of 6 and under are most easily damaged by lead because their nervous systems are still developing.
Removal of lead-based paint from buildings and structures helps prevent serious lead exposures and lead poisoning. Optimum Environmental personnel uses chemical and mechanical methods of lead paint removal. Most often, the removal of the building component and replacement is the best option.
