Childhood lead poisoning has been designated the number one environmental health threat to American children under the age of six, and lead-based paint is the most significant source of lead exposure today. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has stated: “Fully 90 percent of privately owned [housing] units built before 1940, 80 percent of units built between 1940 and 1959, and 62 percent of units built between 1960 and 1979 contain some lead-based paint.” This environmental hazard often cannot be removed safely or cost effectively. Encapsulation of lead-based paint using approved products is a recognized method of abatement with over 20 years of proven results. This method eliminates the costly and labor intensive practice of mechanical removal. If removal must occur, chemical methods can remove lead paint without generating hazardous dust and debris.
