Lead Paint Removal in New York City

Despite New York City banning lead paint in 1960, many homes still harbor undetected lead paint. With expanded NYC HPD lead-based paint testing regulations covering all residential properties, you might require certified lead abatement to address lead issues on your New York property.

Handling lead is too risky to DIY—avoid regulatory headaches and stay safe by obtaining certified lead removal services from a verified and EPA-approved source: AAA Lead Professionals.

New York City Laws on Lead Removal

New York City has some of the strictest laws in the country on lead abatement and other lead services. The Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) now requires all residential homes to be tested for lead-based paint within a specific time frame.

Should an inspection confirm the presence of lead, the property owner or landlords are responsible for hiring state-certified lead abatement contractors. All painted surfaces require lead testing services:

  • By August 2025, within 5 years of NYC Local Law 31 of 2020 coming into effect.
  • Sooner, if a child aged six or younger is living in or moving into the home.
  • Between tenants, before new tenants move in.

Any required lead removal services must be conducted by certified technicians like the team at AAA Lead Professionals.

Our Lead Paint Removal Process

Lead removal is commonly performed in areas including interior walls, windows, window sills, doors, door frames, baseboards, and trim. Other areas requiring lead removal may include any painted surfaces, as well as flooring, porches, fences, stairs, banisters, and railings.

At AAA Lead Professionals, we make sure to keep the work area and dangerous materials completely isolated while lead-based painted surfaces are being disturbed. This prevents the hazard from spreading throughout your home or business.

Here’s what you can expect from us during lead paint removal services:

Area enclosure – Keeping the work area contained and as separate as possible.

Plastic sheeting – Preventing cross-contamination.

Removal of hazardous material – Our specialists use a combination of techniques (such as wet scraping, wet sanding, etc.) to fully and safely remove lead paint.

Work area clean-up – Cleaning the area after abatement services conclude, including wiping down all surfaces and employing specialized HEPA vacuuming to get rid of any residual lead dust.

Confirmation dust wipe sampling – Ensuring your home is lead-safe and code compliant.

Detailed report – Covering the services conducted and all findings.
