Used indiscriminately in products ranging from paints to motor fuels to piping and solder, lead is an insidious poison. Building up in the body, it can cause anemia and has been proven to damage the kidneys, the digestive system, the reproductive system and other vital organs. Even at low levels, it can impair hearing, learning ability and coordination, particularly in young children.
Anchor Industrial Services has been able to apply many of the techniques perfected in asbestos abatement to lead control. Our experienced personnel use the latest proven systems and technology to assess the extent of your lead problem, devise an effective solution, and execute a program that brings you into conformance with federal and local regulations. Get more information on lead from the Environmental Protection Agency.
A variety of techniques are available, including abrasion, heat scraping, and chemical and mechanical removal. Each incorporates special controls to guard against the spread of lead dust or fumes during the process. Disposal is accomplished in full accordance with all applicable regulations.
In many cases, containment provides an equally effective and less costly alternative to removal. Encapsulating coatings are available for both exterior and interior surfaces. They provide high resistance to weathering, vapor transmission, abrasion and fire. Other solutions include seals and enclosure.
