Chipped paint or paint dust that exceeds industry accepted concentrations of lead should be either encapsulated or abated. Encapsulation of problematic paint should only be an option if the appropriate repairs have been made to keep newly applied paint in acceptable order.
If encapsulation is the choice to contain lead based paint, ensure an industry approved encapsulant is used with it’s application performed within industry standards.
If lead abatement is the choice to contain lead based paint, a professional lead abatement contractor should be utilized to complete the prescribed lead abatement procedure.
