CERTIFIED LEAD PAINT REMOVAL

Certified Lead Paint Removal in the Chelmsford, MA Area

First, let's start with the facts. Lead-based paint was used in more than 38 million homes in the United States. Lead paint was banned from residential use in the United States in 1978. Lead can affect children's brains and developing nervous systems and it is also harmful to adults. Anything that disturbs surfaces that were painted with lead paint can create dust and endanger you and your family, especially young children and pregnant women.

If you have a home that was built before 1978 we highly recommend that you don't take any unnecessary chances and get your home checked for the presence of lead paint. This is especially true if you have a home built before 1940, as more than 85% of homes built in that era were painted with lead-based paint.

If you have lead paint in your home, you do have options. If the surface is in something close to pristine condition and if you have no children in the home, you may be able to avoid all potential hazards with good maintenance and vigilance.

However, if the surfaces are not in good shape or if you have children in the house, or just want to eliminate the worry, abatement, often including full lead paint removal will be your best option. Your best bet will be to talk to a painting contractor with experience dealing with lead paint to help you make the decision that is best for you and your family. Freire Painting has handled lead paint removal for many homeowners in the Lowell, MA area and will help you choose the option that will serve you best.

It is important to note that almost every state has different rules affecting lead paint remediation. Be sure to talk to a painting contractor with expertise in dealing with lead paint in your state to ensure that you follow local regulations.

Also, there are a number of projects that a do-it-yourself homeowner can take on and do well if they are willing to put in the time and effort. Lead paint abatement is not one of those projects. Please hire a professional and don't put your health and your family's health at risk.

If you do hire a contractor to perform lead paint removal or remediation there are some important steps that you'll want to make sure they follow. We recommend having a good conversation with the painting contractor about these three things before they start the work:

  • First, you'll want to be sure they plan to fully contain the work area.
  • Ask about how they plan to deal with the lead. Methods that minimize dust are highly recommended.
  • Finally, you'll want to make sure that they plan to clean up thoroughly, leaving no debris or dust.

If you believe you might have lead paint to deal with in your home, or if you know you need lead paint removal services in Chelmsford, Concord, Cambridge, Watertown, Newton or a neighboring area, give the experts at Freire Painting a call at 978-376-1269 or request a free estimate via our web form.

  • We used Friere Painting while adding a two story addition with master suite to our home. Later we had them paint the entire exterior of our home and to update the painting in our living and dining rooms. Levy and his crew are extremely hard working. They met or exceeded deadlines on all our projects. Levy is knowledgeable about paint types, and was helpful in choosing appropriate colors for our projects. He was also patient with us when we changed our minds, and he had to repaint areas. The crew is neat and responsible. I highly recommend Freire Painting without reservation.

  • There are so many positive things to say about them that it's difficult to fit it in one review. Let me start by saying that Levy is a stand up gentleman. Himself and his team treated my girlfriend, my home, and myself with respect. They were always clean, polite, and accommodating. The quality of work was amazing. The cost was also very fair and he explained every single inch of what he was going to do. After only 5 days our entire condos older oak looking trim was completely re-painted and came out great. I would highly recommend Freire Painting to anyone looking to get any kind of paint project done. Thank you you Levy for all your hard work!

  • This company is truly amazing. We needed our outside shutters painted on the house because they were extremely faded from the sun. I called Levy the owner and he came out right away to give me a price. Picked up the paint the same day after we chose color and started the next morning no hassle, very professional and precise in his craft. Very happy with the work and would recommend this company 100 percent!
