ARVADA, Colo., April 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- According to a Spring Home Improvement Survey conducted by the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) and Sherwin-Williams, 7 out of 10 homeowners are planning home improvement projects in the Spring, and of those, 49% cite painting as their top "to do."
When working in older homes, there is the very real concern about lead-based paint. Great care needs to be given to properly testing the areas you will be working on before scraping areas potentially affected. Lead-based paint, a known toxin, was widely used in North America on both the exteriors and interiors of buildings until it was banned in 1978. Lead compounds were an important component of many historic paints. However, in its deteriorated form, it produces paint chips and lead-laden dust particles that are a known health hazard to both children and adults. Renovation and demolition activities involving lead-based paint can create lead dust that is hazardous to the health and safety of the workers and the occupants.
