Lead-based paint and lead contaminated dust are the most hazardous sources of lead for U.S. children. Lead-based paints were banned for use in 1978. All structures built before 1978 are likely to contain some lead-based paint. However, it is the deterioration of this paint that causes a problem.
Even when dealing with demolition, lead is a consideration. What typically happens is that a contractor comes in, scrapes off all of the lead paint, puts it in a hazardous waste container and disposes of it appropriately. This, as you can imagine, is outrageously expensive.
Carey Cleaning Solutions has techniques for neutralizing the lead in paint on a molecular level, so demolition can proceed without scraping off all the paint first. This can save hundreds of thousands of dollars.
