Lead Removal Services

Our highly trained staff consists of trained and certified and trained lead abatement and removal professionals. No matter what size lead project, SLC Environmental can successfully site mobilize within your time requirements (days, nights, weekends), set up site isolation to work areas, remove and detail clean any material containing Lead, by means such as:

  • Mechanical lead paint removal–brushes, scrapers
  • Abrasive blasting paint removal
  • Chemical stripping paint and coating removal
  • Decontamination of lead dust with HEPA vacuum
  • Enclosure with a durable substance
  • Encapsulation with a lead barrier compound
It is not recommended to live or spend extensive time in an environment that has lead containing materials. Lead paint becomes hazardous when it is deteriorated or disturbed. Intact lead paint is not a hazard. However when sun, water, age, or maintenance work damages the paint, contaminated dust and chips can be created. Lead can enter the body when adults or children inhale or ingest lead dust, fumes, particles or chips. This can be:

  • In the air, soil, or water
  • On objects like tools or toys
  • On surfaces like floors or counters
  • On food, drink, or cigarettes
Lead Abatement is not regulated like Asbestos in Ontario, however, the Ministry of Labour – Occupational Health and Safety Branch has developed and outlined specific guidelines when coming into lead containing materials in construction. These guidelines are the best known practices and outline the requirements for removal and dispsoal of lead contamination within Ontario.

Once a risk assessment report and scope is developed by a third party Environmental Consultant/Engineer; SLC Environmental can work with you and your needs to completing the project in a timely manner. At SLC Environmental we have worked with various government agencies, property management firms, commercial, industrial and residential clients.
