Demolition Preparation: Industrial Projects Lead Paint Removal
Demolition might seem like an ideal solution for getting rid of a lead problem. However, it's important to remember that lead dust is a huge health and environmental hazard. If you have lead paint on your walls, there is no surer way to create a huge cloud of dust than by knocking those walls down indiscriminately.
If you're going to deal with a lead problem as part of a demolition project, then you need to remove the lead before you can demolish anything. And, because lead is such a hazard, it's important not to cut corners when it comes to disposing of it. While proper lead disposal can slow down a project, and add cost to the bottom line, there is no shortcut when it comes to lead. Just like asbestos, and other hazardous materials we once commonly built with, we have to deal with the last generation of hazards, and cut them out cleanly before we can proceed with building the future.
