Lead Paint Removal

Lead poisoning is a serious but preventable health problem. Medical research shows that there is NO safe level of lead. Lead can cause permanent damage to children, including: learning disabilities, behavioral problems, lower IQ, and other health problems. Adults can also suffer from adverse health effects due to lead exposure, including: higher blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, anemia, kidney damage, thyroid dysfunction and cancer.

Lead in paint and dust from lead paint are the major sources of lead exposure. Anyone living in or working on a home built before 1978, when lead was banned in residential paint, is at greater risk for exposure to lead – especially when unsafe work practices are used.

Alderson, Inc. is licensed in the state of Vermont as a lead abatement entity, and all of our staff are EPA certified renovators.
