Why is paint stripping so hazardous?
Two reasons, firstly the chemicals and solvents involved are often highly toxic and secondly people tend to lack the experience needed to strip paint safely, resulting in lead poisoning.
Lead Based Paint – a historical issue
Only in the last three or so decades have we stopped using lead-based paint in our New Zealand homes. Prior to that, lead based paint was the go-to product for painting everyone’s home. Given the age of many an Auckland property, for example a turn of the century colonial villa, it’s not uncommon for us to encounter surfaces with a score of layers of lead based oil paint needing to be stripped away.
Every year Auckland unfortunately gets its share of lead poisoning cases as people encounter toxic lead paint particles. If you own a house with lead painted surfaces, you will need to seriously consider removing the paint as over time the lead-based paint will flake away. With the lead leaching into the surrounding soil and property, making the area toxic to pets and children.
