LEAD PAINT REMOVAL

Lead Paint Removal in the , OH Area

First, let's start with the facts. Lead-based paint was used in more than 38 million homes in the United States. Lead paint was banned from residential use in the United States in 1978. Lead can affect children's brains and developing nervous systems and it is also harmful to adults. Anything that disturbs surfaces that were painted with lead paint can create dust and endanger you and your family, especially young children and pregnant women.

If you have a home that was built before 1978 we highly recommend that you don't take any unnecessary chances and get your home checked for the presence of lead paint. This is especially true if you have a home built before 1940, as more than 85% of homes built in that era were painted with lead-based paint.

If you have lead paint in your home, you do have options. If the surface is in something close to pristine condition and if you have no children in the home, you may be able to avoid all potential hazards with good maintenance and vigilance.

However, if the surfaces are not in good shape or if you have children in the house, or just want to eliminate the worry, abatement, often including full lead paint removal will be your best option. Your best bet will be to talk to a painting contractor with experience dealing with lead paint to help you make the decision that is best for you and your family. Sharp Paintworx has handled lead paint removal for many homeowners in the Cincinnati, OH area and will help you choose the option that will serve you best.

It is important to note that almost every state has different rules affecting lead paint remediation. Be sure to talk to a painting contractor with expertise in dealing with lead paint in your state to ensure that you follow local regulations.

Also, there are a number of projects that a do-it-yourself homeowner can take on and do well if they are willing to put in the time and effort. Lead paint abatement is not one of those projects. Please hire a professional and don't put your health and your family's health at risk.

If you do hire a contractor to perform lead paint removal or remediation there are some important steps that you'll want to make sure they follow. We recommend having a good conversation with the painting contractor about these three things before they start the work:

  • First, you'll want to be sure they plan to fully contain the work area.
  • Ask about how they plan to deal with the lead. Methods that minimize dust are highly recommended.
  • Finally, you'll want to make sure that they plan to clean up thoroughly, leaving no debris or dust.

If you believe you might have lead paint to deal with in your home, or if you know you need lead paint removal services in or a neighboring area, give the experts at Sharp Paintworx a call at 513-996-6835 or request a free estimate via our web form.

    Their crew painted the exterior trim, fascia, doors and foundation of our house AND installed custom shutters that we purchased from a vendor. They do GREAT work for a fair price. Would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone, which I've already done. I'm sure we will use them again when the time arrives.

  • reviewiconGreat Service
    We used Sharp Paintworx to paint all of the exterior woodwork on our home. We were extremely pleased with the bidding process, samples selection, planning, execution and overall quality and professionalism. The painters were all very considerate, worked extremely hard, did a high quality job, and cleaned up after themselves at the end of each day. When the job was over, we received a full walk-through, as well as a full can of paint to do touch-ups in the future. We would definitely use them again and would highly recommend them. We've received positive comments from several neighbors, some of whom have asked for us to pass along the contact info for Sharp Paintworx.

    The entire process from bid to completion was easy and professional. Tony answered all of my questions and quickly got back to me with a clear detailed estimate. Once work began, the entire crew was professional and paid close attention to detail. Once complete, the house was left clean and looking amazing with the new paint colors and drywall work. I'd highly recommend Sharp Paintworx for any painting or drywall needs.

    Sharp did an excellent job, these guys were the hardest workers and came on a Saturday and Sunday and worked all day. They were very polite, picked up after themselves, and took great care of our property. The quality of work was outstanding. Tony is amazing and easy to work with. Tony is very responsive and makes sure he delivers on his promises. I would highly recommend anyone who is having work done. You won't be sorry!
