Steamy Concepts as a Tucson lead removal specialist is a Certified Lead Renovator through the Environmental Protection Agency. Any renovation, repair or painting can disturb lead based paint and can create toxic lead chips and dust if those materials are in your home or commercial building. Lead is a highly toxic metal found in small amounts in the earth’s crust, and because of its abundance, low cost, and physical properties, lead and lead compounds have been used in a wide variety of products including paint, ceramics, pipes, solders, gasoline, batteries, and cosmetics. Why is lead dangerous? Extreme exposure to this heavy metal toxin can cause severe health problems in both adults and children including damage to the brain and nervous system. Lead is most commonly found in paint in homes built before 1978.
Renovation or repair can create toxic lead dust when painted surfaces are disturbed or demolished, which is why it is important to hire a lead certified contractor to remove any lead containing building materials. Lead can also enter water supplies through plumbing materials, as lead pipes and lead solder were commonly used in household building materials until 1986. Steamy Concepts employs certified lead renovators and can quickly and efficiently remove any potentially harmful building materials containing lead. If you are in need of Tucson lead removal, look no further than Steamy Concepts.
