Our technical expertise and broad experience has allowed us to successfully complete hundreds of lead abatement projects within demanding schedules and budgets.

Lead Removal

Thermatech Northwest has the resources and training necessary to offer a variety of lead-based paint removal techniques, including abrasion, heat scraping, and chemical and mechanical removal. Each incorporates rigorous controls to eliminate the spread of lead dust or fumes during the process. Proper containment, removal, and disposal is accomplished in full accordance with all applicable regulations set forth by the EPA and OSHA.

Lead Stabilization

Lead stabilization can provide an equally effective and less costly alternative to lead removal. One stabilization method is enclosure. It is accomplished by enclosing the lead painted surface with a durable substance, such as drywall, paneling, or siding. Another method is encapsulation. It involves coating or sealing interior or exterior surface paint with a durable liquid that can provide a high resistance to weathering, vapor transmission, abrasion and fire.

These procedures should only be completed by a certified Lead Abatement Contractor in accordance with all of the regulations set by the EPA and OSHA.
