Who is at Risk?
Some homes built as recently as 1978 and many homes built before 1960 contain varying degrees of leaded paint. Some older homes may even have heavily leaded paint – paint that was manufactured before we knew just how bad lead paint can be! But don’t worry, if the paint is removed properly, with all protective coverings and clean up procedures in place, the threat can be eliminated from your home. SFW Painting knows how to make your home look beautiful and eliminate the risks of harmful poisons lurking in your paint.
What Paint Is Right For Your Home?
The paints that we choose are environmentally friendly, easy to clean, most importantly, meet all of the most stringent EPA regulations for VOC’s. One such VOC or volatile organic compound, is lead. This is why we use leaders in environmentally friendly paint like Sherwin Williams, Rodda, and Miller Paint. These companies make paint that is good for the environment and your health and piece of mind.
