Lead Paint Removal: Safely Eliminating Lead-Based Paint

Lead Paint Removal in Atlanta, GA

Understanding the Dangers of Lead Paint in Your Home

If your home was built before the 1970s, it’s likely that the original layers of paint contain lead. Despite its adverse effects, lead was a common ingredient in paint due to its durability and moisture resistance. Now, we understand the real danger of this toxic material.

Lead poisoning can result in significant health problems, particularly in children. Symptoms range from learning difficulties, irritability, and loss of appetite, to more severe cases such as seizures and even death. Pregnant women exposed to lead can experience complications, and adults can develop high blood pressure and kidney issues.

That’s why it’s essential to conduct regular lead risk assessments and inspections, particularly in older homes. Identifying and dealing with lead paint promptly can protect you and your loved ones from these risks.

Lead-Based Paint Removal Methods: Exploring Your Options

While there are a number of DIY methods to remove lead-based paint, such as wet sanding, heat guns, encapsulation, or chemical stripping, each comes with significant risks. Lead dust and fumes can be hazardous if not properly managed.

For example, using a heat gun requires careful monitoring of temperature to avoid releasing toxic fumes. Similarly, chemical stripping involves the use of harsh substances that require ample ventilation and protective gear. Therefore, the safest way to handle lead paint is through professional intervention.

Creating a Lead-Safe Work Area

Our ES America team understands the paramount importance of setting up a lead-safe work area before we start any lead paint removal project. Your home is your sanctuary, and our job is to protect it from toxic lead dust that could spread throughout the house during the removal process.

We meticulously prepare each work area by covering your furniture and possessions, then isolate the space with plastic sheeting and duct tape to prevent lead particles from escaping. Our professionals employ high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters, the gold standard in air filtration technology, to control airborne lead dust during the process. To safeguard our staff and your family, we always use personal protective equipment (PPE), including goggles, gloves, and respirator masks.


Our seasoned experts kickstart the process by identifying areas in your home with lead-based paint. We leverage cutting-edge lead testing kits and professional inspectors for this crucial step.

Once we’ve identified the affected areas, our team carefully removes any loose paint chips or debris, sealing them in sturdy plastic bags for proper disposal, following all local and national guidelines.

After the removal process, we meticulously clean and decontaminate the area. Our technicians use HEPA vacuum cleaners and wet mops to capture any lingering lead dust, leaving your home spotless and lead-free.

I highly recommend ES-America's services. Knowing very little about asbestos, I researched widely and called many companies. Sarah and Elias by far surpassed their competition. For me, ES out-shined others with their commitment and excitement about their chosen expertise (all about asbestos). On our first call, Sarah answered my questions quickly and thoroughly, which prompted deeper questions that I had not asked other companies (because the reps seemed lacking in knowledge or interest). With other companies, I felt the need to continue searching. With Sarah, I hired ES after the first call. Elias came the next day and was just as enthusiastic and competent. He worked quickly and then expertly taped over and cleaned up the test areas. The test results arrived within hours - and thankfully were all negative. Last note: their pricing seems competitive.
