LEAD-BASED PAINT REMOVAL
According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, “Lead is a naturally occurring element found in small amounts in the earth’s crust. While it has some beneficial uses, it can be toxic to humans and animals, causing health effects.”
Older residential and commercials properties built before 1978 often used lead-based paints. If you are concerned about the possibility of lead on your property, Bethel Environmental Solutions can assist.
According to WebMD.com, "Lead is dangerous because it can spread in your body and cause health problems. It can affect almost every organ and system in your body". Concern for Lead-based paint (LBP) is primarily related to residential structures and other facilities where children are routinely present or when facility improvements are considered where human exposure occurs.
Bethel Environmental Services (BES) performs LBP surveys in association with our preparation of Operations Management (O&M) Plans for those facilities where LBP is managed in-place, in addition to preliminary
surveys, and surveys associated with facility improvements (demolition and disposal). Our personnel are
experienced in state and local landfill regulations and the necessary analysis required to assess disposal
options for LBP painted construction debris. BES staff are qualified to conduct LBP surveys in many of
the states who have adopted LBP assessor certification/licensing regulations.
