Before 1970, paints containing high levels of lead were used in many Australian houses. Exposure to lead is a health hazard. Even small amounts of dust or chips of paint containing lead, generated during minor home repairs, can be a health risk.
Anyone painting a house or doing maintenance that could disturb paint containing lead should avoid exposing themselves and their families, neighbours or pets to its hazards.
The recommended amount of lead in domestic paint has declined from 50% before 1965, to 1% in 1965. In 1992, it was reduced to 0.25%, and in 1997 it was further reduced to 0.1%. (Source: Australian Government, Department of Environment)
ASP uses leading technology and methods when removing lead paint and dust from surfaces. Using the chemical peel or sand blasting system we are able to remove up to 30 coats of paint in a single application whilst being environmentally friendly and compliant with the Australian Standard.
