Lead paint removal services Brisbane

Brisbane’s leading residential lead paint removal team

Safely remove dangerous chemical residues from your home

Homes that are around 40 years old or older likely contain lead paint, which releases toxic dust and fumes if not removed correctly. Trust the best lead paint removal company Brisbane has to offer and opt for Prime Building Painters to safely and comprehensively remove all lead paint in your home.

Our lead paint removal services are offered across all areas of metropolitan Brisbane from northside to southside, eastern and western suburbs.

Why it’s crucial to remove ALL lead paint from your home

Lead paint can be dangerous to your family’s health

Before the 1980s, almost every home in Brisbane was painted with lead paint. Back then, builders were unaware of the dangerous chemicals contained in this product. If your Brisbane Queenslander or home was built back then and hasn’t had the paint removed yet, you should seriously consider getting it removed as soon as possible.

But this is often easier said than done. Removing every inch of lead paint from your home’s exterior or interior can be just as dangerous as having it in your home in the first place. Certain steps & procedures must be taken in order to have lead paint removed safely. Since this paint releases dust and toxins, scraping it off the conventional way just won’t do. 

Fortunately, lead paint abatement services in Brisbane do exist, although not every painting company is qualified to perform this task to industry OH&S standards. Prime Building Painters has several important safety steps in place to ensure the safe removal of lead paint. This protects your family’s health, and creates a clean slate for reinventing your home’s finish with brand new interior or exterior house painting.

5 safety procedures necessary for removing lead paint

With us, safety comes first

There are a number of OH&S regulations when it comes to residential lead paint removal. It’s important to cover all your bases when taking on a project like this, because inhaling the dust particles released by lead paint can be extremely dangerous to your health. That’s why Prime Building Painters exercises 5 important precautionary methods when removing lead paint. So what are these safety steps?

  1. Prime Building Painters is fully insured against any mishaps during the lead paint removal process. This is to protect our customers as well as our staff from any health issues. To further protect you, we advise all our clients to leave the premises until the paint has been successfully removed. 
  2. We do a full inspection of your property to ascertain how much lead paint has been used on the exterior and the interior of your home. From here, we give you a quote and a reasonable time frame for our lead paint abatement services. 
  3. We equip our removal staff with safety uniforms and masks. Even though the equipment we use (see below) is intended to remove lead paint without releasing an excess amount of fumes or dust, it’s best to err on the side of caution.
  4. Using a festool vacuum and a standardised HEPA filter along with proper removal equipment, we go to work to remove every inch of lead paint from your walls. By the time we’re done, lead paint traces will be completely removed from both your surfaces as well as your home’s atmosphere.
  5. Most importantly, this process is done as quickly as possible. If we are able, Prime Building Painters will have all lead paint removed within a day, so that you can return to your home as soon as possible.
