lead abatement

3021 Views 8 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  Tmrrptr
So people talk of government agencies chasing after painting companies for not dealing with lead paint properly. So let's discuss - what exactly entails lead abatement these days? It seems to me that there is absolutely nobody paying extra money for lead abatement. Is it realistic to now approach customers with bids ranging from 20 - 50k for this? When they are use to 6-7k paint jobs?

In my areas - all painting companies scrape down all homes with vast amounts of lead paint that are still on the homes. Nobody even remotely entertains the though of lead abatement. I guess it is because there is zero government enforcement. But if they start to enforce - I dont' want it to be just a few 'lucky' guys that get nabbed. It's got to be an all or nothing effort. Either they make everyone do this - and everyone gets reported - or they just stay out of it.
