As a company that spends the majority of its time working on old properties, we are very aware of the potential problems caused by lead contamination in all its forms (dust or paint) and we ensure all our work practices do not exacerbate the problem. We offer a comprehensive clean up service for contaminated sites and pride ourselves at being one of the construction market leaders in this field.
Lead contamination is causing increasing problems on a lot of construction and development sites, and we have been at the forefront of decontaminating sites ranging from railway bridges, old theatres and hotels to public libraries. Our specialist teams are trained and certificated by the independent external trainers and they have regular blood tests to ensure that they do not contaminate themselves during the works.
Lead dust decontamination – In order to provide the most rigorous cleaning standards we only use HEPA (High Efficiency Particle Arrest) vacuum cleaners, high density steam fogging equipment, Nilfisk scrubber driers and high volume wet recovery pumps. Once the cleaned site has been tested and approved we provide a full spray encapsulation service to allow to area to be accessed again.
Lead paint is carefully stripped in the majority of cases using a poultice system, whereby the contaminated paint is removed with the poultice and can be disposed as contaminated waste by specialist contractors. Our operators use vacuum recovery steam guns to wash down all treated areas and this system ensures all waste is captured and circulated to enclosed storage vessels on site. Residual lead levels can be tested and all results supplied by an independent analyst.
