The removal of Lead based paint on items that have deteriorated and become loose and flaking. Usually found on window frames, doors and trim in homes and offices. The flaking paint is an extreme concern when children are present. Their natural curiosity to touch and possibly ingest the chips is the reason our government has imposed strict regulations on the removal of this component. Commonly an item, which could cause dust when moved back and forth, a friction surface, should be abated or removed in whole.
