Napp Enterprises Ltd. - Lead Abatement

By: Napp Enterprises  09-12-2011

Lead is a highly toxic substance used in paint products until 1978.  Exposure to lead dust can affect brain functions, fertility, joint problems, and cause irritability.   

Buildings constructed prior to 1960 will probably have lead based paint in them.  New constructions from 1960 to present are less likely to have any lead products in them.  If the paint is intact then there are no concerns however, once delaminating occurs it creates a hazard.   

Environmental consultants can be retained to test your property for lead contamination through air samples and paint scrapings.  Our staff is fully trained and equipped to deal with any size lead abatement project.

Napp Enterprises Ltd. - Hazardous Materials

It is important to note that while the production of asbestos containing materials was stopped in the late 1970’s, there has been asbestos discovered in buildings constructed as late as 1986. Vermiculite insulation contains asbestos as a natural by product of the mining process and so one must exercise diligence during testing to avoid a false reading.

Napp Enterprises Ltd. - PCB Removal

Manufacturers used PCB’s (polychlorinated biphenyls) in electrical components due to their insulating properties. The most commonly found form of PCB’s in buildings is the fluorescent light ballasts (power box inside fixtures). While the majority of testing has been on animals, studies in human exposure provide supportive evidence. PCB has both carcinogenic and non-carcinogenic side affects.
