HELP! We are buying a 1940s house with some chipping and peeling lead paint. The EPA recommends an NIOSH certified HEPA filtered mask which is very expensive to invest in for a one time use. I want a mask with an eye shield too. Also, EPA says to 'wet sand' and 'wet scrape' which I guess is just mist with a water bottle then sand and scrape. Help! Thanks!
We just bought an older home, and the county in which we live provides a free lead paint removal kit (does not provide the HEPA mask but does have other useful tools) and they lend HEPA vacuums for use in getting all lead based dust out of your home. Check with your county or city and see if they provide any services to assist the removal of paint.
You can remove the lead paint easily and safely using the PEEL AWAY I product which will do it in one application. The system is always keeping the paint in a wet or damp state so there is no airborne lead dust. Visit the web site at www.peelaway.com for more info on lead paint removal.
You do not want to use PEELAWAY 1 it is a caustic paint remover that will burn your skin --- you can use either the peelaway 7 or back to nature multi strip and if you can find in your store rockmiracle pro strip 1 which i found did the best job
