Lead Paint Surveys
Essential lead paint surveys performed in London and the South East
Here at Abastra, we have been conducting lead paint surveys for our thousands of satisfied clients in London, Luton, Basildon, Chelmsford, Maidstone, Eastbourne, Brighton, Southampton, Portsmouth, and further afield, right across the UK. An important part of any commercial project involving the disturbance of paintwork, lead paint surveys are a legal requirement for all businesses.
Abastra has held an asbestos licence since 1989. The company has been an ARCA (Asbestos Removal Contractors Association) member for over two decades, and recently had its 2018 asbestos licence renewed until 2021.
Lead paint surveys
The paintwork on most buildings, be they public, domestic, or commercial, is likely to include a certain amount of lead content, and with older paintwork the lead content tends to be higher. The existence of lead in the paint is not necessarily a hazard in and of itself, but the survey determines the concentration of lead in the paint, the state of repair of the paint, whether the planned work will cause the paint to deteriorate, and whether these items combined result in an acceptable level of risk.
