Lead Paint Removals

Essential lead paint removal performed in London and the South East

Lead has been banned in UK paints since 1992, and it’s no wonder. As a poisonous substance, it has proven to be extremely damaging to health when ingested, or when inhaled as particles on the air. Prolonged exposure can lead to serious health complications that affect the brain, liver, and nervous system.

If you have recently had a lead paint survey to determine the levels of lead in your paint, and wish to have it removed, professionally and safely, then you have come to the right place.

We have had an asbestos licence continuously since 1989, as well as being members of the Asbestos Removal Contractors Association (or ARCA) for more than two decades). Our 2018 asbestos licence was recently renewed through to 2021.

Do I need lead paint removal?

Not necessarily. If your lead paint survey shows the paintwork in your property to be in good condition, then it poses no appreciable risk, so long as you keep an eye on it for future cracks and damage. Likewise, you can choose to go for encapsulation, rather than lead paint removal.

Can I perform the lead paint removal myself?

There’s nothing stopping you but, unless you have experience working with hazardous materials, we would not recommend it. At Abastra we have all the necessary safety equipment and professional experience to ensure the safety of our staff and our customers.

Lead paint encapsulation

An alternative to lead paint removal, this technique involves applied a specially formulated encapsulating paint to the cracked or damaged lead paint. It acts as a sealant, preventing the escape of paint chips and dust.
