We are licensed and certified to ensure your home or business does not involve hazardous lead dust. We use lead remediation practices to renovate and repair your property to remain safe and lead-free. According to Oregon Health, "common renovation activities like sanding, cutting and demolition can create hazardous lead dust and chips by disturbing lead-based paint, which can be harmful to adults and children. To protect against this risk, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued the Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule (RRP Rule) that became effective on April 22, 2010. Cascade Insulation will help you strive for a health, lead-free home!
Common Lead Sources
The most common lead source is lead dust. It is for the most part, very difficult to see. Lead-based paint was used in over 40 million homes until lead paint was restricted around 1978. There are many homes that are still exposed to lead or projects that disturb painted surfaces that can create lead dust. Head over to our home page were we also offer asbestos surveys.
