The lead paints were quite popular in the 1960s and were used quite commonly in paints for buildings and homes. However, after the studies and researches proved the extremely harmful effects of this heavy metal on the human health, lead paints were banned and thereafter lead was not used as a component in the paints for buildings or constructions. The lead paints are likely to enter the body through breathing as the lead dust gets released in the air when the paint chips off. So, this sometimes results in a significant increase in the lead level in the blood which may cause lead poisoning. This is the reason why it is very important to undertake a lead paint removal if after a lead paint inspection, lead has been found in your residence.

There are certain preparations which you need to make before the undertaking the lead paint removal. If possible, shifting all the furniture and furnishings such as carpets and curtains is advisable. However, if you are not able to move all your furniture then make sure that you have covered them up properly by using large plastic sheets. You may even cover the floor and seal it by using tapes as well. The site should be secured in such a manner that the lead dust or the flakes should not fall on your furniture. If the lead paint removal is supposed to be done of the outer walls make sure that all the garden is properly covered with plastics and remember to not undertake this work if too much wind is blowing. Also, pregnant women and children should be kept far away from the worksite. Make sure that all the safety gear such as disposable gloves, overalls, shoe covers and safety goggles are worn by you and you should strictly keep in mind that drinking, eating or smoking when carrying out the lead paint removal is not allowed.

You must take proper care for ensuring that formation of lead fumes and dust does not take place. This is the reason why the most secure method of carrying out the lead paint removal process is by using chemical strippers as no fumes or dust is caused by them. You may use paste variety of the chemical stickers, because they tend to stick well to molding or other uneven surfaces. Also, you must allow strippers to settle down and you will observe that paint has softened and bubbles have started forming. After this, you may start removing the paint with the help of broad putty knife. After this round of the lead paint removal procedure and you will come across a certain parts in the fall, which still has layers of the lead you can easily get rid of such layers by using some alkaline stripper. However, even need to keep the alkaline stripper untouched for at least 24 hours after applying the same.
