Asbestos is responsible for number of fatal illnesses. The lightweight nature of the asbestos particle facilitates airborne spreading of these deadly carcinogens, so therefore most asbestos-related diseases affect the respiratory system. These diseases are incurable and agonizing consequences of working in the asbestos industry or contact with asbestos-related products. Even tiny amounts of asbestos can inflict irreversible damage, as symptoms usually only emerge 20 to 30 years after initial exposure.
The NYS Department of Health offers the following safety tips for lead paint removal:
In addition, it is important to note that lead removal will generate lead dust and debris. Unless the house is properly cleaned, it will be more hazardous after the work than it was before!
Everyday, the debris should be misted with
water, swept up and placed in double 4-mil or 6- mil plastic bags.
Then all surfaces should be wet-dusted and wet-mopped. A
HEPA-equipped vacuum should be used on all surfaces
Don’t use a standard household vacuum or shop vacuum, which is not designed or equipped to trap lead dust particles. Then wet-mop hardwood surfaces with a solution containing a heavy-duty household cleaner (automatic dishwasher detergent or a lead-specific detergent). The wet-mopping should be followed by another HEPA vacuuming.
Old rugs and carpets should be replaced, if possible; and all furniture, bedding, rugs, carpets, drapes, etc., that were removed prior to work should be cleaned before being brought back in.
Disposing of lead debris should be done using doubled-bags and placing them in the household trash. Lead debris must never be burned. Liquid wastes, including wash water, must never be dumped onto the ground; waste water should be filtered through a cloth filter before dumping it into a sanitary sewer or toilet. The filtered debris can go out with the other trash. The mops and cloths used to clean up lead dust and debris should never be used for any other purpose, and should be disposed of when the job is done.
In the end, it is safest not to undertake lead removal on your own. Contact your local health department for additional information or for help in identifying qualified contractors experienced in lead removal.
