Older homes and offices may have been painted using harmful lead-based products. In 1991, Canadian paint manufacturers began placing restrictions on the amount of lead in their products after the chemical was recognized as being toxic. Homes built prior to 1991 may have been constructed using lead paint products. Even if you have had your old plaster walls replaced with fresh new drywall, your home or office’s window sills and door frames may still contain traces of the chemical.
Understanding the danger of lead in your home and the various treatments options is important. Thompson Valley Restoration DKI is here to answer any questions you may have about the presence of lead and to help address your concerns.
