Lead Paint Removal
Lead paint removal is an important task that must be carried out with care and attention to detail, due to the hazardous nature of the product.
We at T&T Group were one of the first in the UK to be specialists in Lead Paint Removal.
Lead paint, which was commonly used in the UK before the 1970s, can be a serious health hazard, especially for young children and pregnant women.
Lead paint is often found in older buildings, particularly those built before the 1970s. When lead paint deteriorates or is disturbed, it can create lead dust, which can be ingested or inhaled. This is why it's important to take precautions when renovating or restoring older buildings that may contain lead paint.
The UK has strict regulations in place to ensure that lead paint removal is carried out safely and effectively which we at T&T Group strictly adhere to and follow. The Control of Lead at Work Regulations 2002 sets out the legal requirements for working with lead, including the removal of lead paint. Under these regulations, anyone carrying out work that may disturb lead paint must be trained and competent to do so. They must also use suitable protective equipment, such as gloves, goggles, and respirators. In addition, any waste containing lead must be disposed of in accordance with hazardous waste regulations.
