Lead Removal In New Jersey

Lead has been acknowledged as a harmful environmental contaminant. It may be among the most prevalent environmental threats to children’s health in New Jersey and the US generally. Poor lead removal can amplify the risk of exposure, which is why such assignments should always be left to EPA-certified experts, like our team here at AAA Lead Professionals.

We are trained in lead abatement techniques, and we know what to do and make the environment you live or work, a safe place to be.

New Jersey’s Recent Lead Regulations

In 2021, Gov. Phil Murphy signed three bills into law to eliminate common sources of lead exposure in New Jersey.

One new law (S1147) targets lead dust and paint, the most common sources of lead exposure. It requires any rental home built before 1978 to be inspected and tested for lead.

The second law (A5343) required every community water system to replace every lead service line in its network within ten years.

The last law (A5407) lifts restrictions on special assessments and bond issuances linked to the replacement of residential lead service lines.

Lead Paint Hazards That Necessitate Our Lead Removal Services

In most cases, lead paint that’s in good condition does not pose a health hazard. However, during remodeling, renovations, or when lead paint starts to deteriorate, lead dust and paint chips become a hazard. If your lead paint is in one of the above conditions, you should contact a lead removal contractor like us for evaluation and remediation services.

Common sources for lead paint hazards that require remediation include:

  • Chipping, cracking, chipping, or chalking of lead paint
  • Lead paint on surfaces that experience excessive wear, including doors, door frames, windows, window sills, hardwood floors, stairs, stair rails, fences, or porches
  • Lead paint on surfaces, which kids may come into contact with
  • Lead in soil around houses or buildings

Other areas where lead paint can pose a significant risk include multi-family buildings, as any lead issue can be amplified due to the high number of people who could be potentially affected.

In addition, industrial activities may churn out lead or lead-by products that contaminate buildings, water, and soil. In such situations, lead paint removal is required to remove hazards.

At AAA Lead Professionals, we understand these common sources of contamination, and we are experienced in all kinds of lead abatement projects.

Can I Remove Lead Myself?

Regulations enacted in 1995 require New Jersey firms carrying out lead abatement projects to be certified. These regulations are referred to as the “Lead Hazard Evaluation and Abatement Code.”

In addition, EPA’s lead renovation, repair, and painting rule requires that companies performing projects that disturb lead paint in homes, pre-schools, and child care facilities constructed before 1978 be certified by EPA and follow lead-safe work practices.

While the Lead Renovation, Repair, and Painting Rule doesn’t apply to people painting, repairing, or renovating their own homes, DIY projects can create lead dust easily.

Actually, without the right tools and training, you might make your home or work premises even more dangerous. Always leave the job to top lead removal companies like AAA lead professionals, who have the equipment or experience to handle such risky jobs.

Our Lead Removal Process

Our team will decide the most effective way to remove lead, based on the info contained in the report. The lead removal process commences when they determine the course of action, and the process may involve:

  • Enclosure – This entails covering a lead-based surface like walls with a new surface. Be warned if the new surface is ever removed, the lead paint will be accessible again, and your family or tenants will be exposed.
  • Replacement – You may have doors, windows, molding, or other parts of the building that have been painted in lead paint. For this method, we replace these parts with a new lead-free alternative.
  • Encapsulation – When we use this abatement method, we cover the surface containing lead with specialized paint. This usually seals in the lead paint and stops it from deteriorating. It’s worth noting that the specialized paint will wear eventually, and you will need a fresh coating.
  • Paint removal – We may decide that getting rid of the lead-based paint is the most practical option for your circumstances. In such a situation, we will use different methods to eliminate it. At times, this involves electric sanding, wet hand scraping, or wire brushing. We always ensure we use a HEPA vacuum so that lead particles don’t spread all over your home or business premises in the process. When we have gotten rid of the paint, we will clean the surface to remove any remaining dust. At this point, we can repaint the surface with lead-free paint.

Note: All the debris gotten from the site is disposed of appropriately. Our debris collection and removal process meet certified hazardous good removal standards.
