Complete Los Angeles County Lead Abatement Services | Harbor Environmental

Old, lead-based paints are still present and creating problems in many Los Angeles County homes and businesses. Lead abatement is the process of removing lead-based paints along with the dust from these paints, making the building safe and healthy for people who live, work, or visit there.

Lead is a soft, naturally occurring metal which was added to paint until 1978 in the United States because it helped with drying of the paint and made it more moisture resistant. Unfortunately, lead in the paint can easily disintegrate into dust which can then be ingested by breathing the dust or when the dust settles on food or other objects which are then put into the mouth.

Children are especially susceptible to the health hazards posed by lead exposure in old paint, but anyone can be affected over time. Lead is a cumulative poison, meaning the body does not easily eliminate lead when it is ingested. Instead, lead accumulates in the body over time, leading primarily to neurological and cognitive health problems which are irreversible.
