Does your commercial property, perhaps unknowingly, have lead-based paint? The older the structure was built and painted, the greater the chance it has lead-based paint. If you are unsure if something contains lead, it is critical to get it tested prior to any tear down or remodel.
As leading experts in lead removal in San Diego, we have the knowledge to execute this process safely and efficiently. It is a very niche field; in fact, a regular painter or contractor typically does not have the certification required to remove lead paint. Even if they are certified, it is highly rare for them to have the means to dispose of the lead in the proper, legal ways.
Watkins Environmental is Department of Health certified in lead removal and disposal. With this certification and our connections, we can promise a smooth, easy process.
Where Lead is Found & Why Lead Removal is so Important

Lead-based paint can be very harmful if it gets into an individual’s bloodstream and induces lead poisoning. It can occur if a person directly ingests the lead-based paint, an individual touches the paint and gets the particles into their body or if the lead-based paint is burned and a person breathes in those fumes.
To avoid and prevent these issues, our lead paint removal services in are at your disposal.
