Sample Lead Paint Removal Reviews
We arranged to meet at 9:30 am. When I arrived at the house at 9:30, the inspector was already there, and stated that he had already finished his inspection of the outside of the house! He took some time to explain exactly what he was looking for, as well as the method that he used. He provided a packet of information stating Massachusetts Lead Laws, as well as information on options for deleading, if it is needed.
We didn't follow him around to every room, but from when we were with him, he seemed to be doing a very thorough job, which also was followed up by a report detailing the results of every surface on which the test was performed. An added bonus was that the total cost was slightly under the original estimate! I would definitely recommend.
As a result, we had to throw out the rug, worth a few hundred bucks, and will need to have our carpet steamed cleaned just to get rid of the awful smell.
When I emailed AFR to let them know what happened, they didn't even bother to respond! I am aware they may not have been responsible for replacing/cleaning the carpet, but an apology or even acknowledgement would have been nice since it was their rep who caused the damage!
I was referred to AFR by our plumber, and I wish I'd gone with someone else.
For detailed info on what removing lead paint with torches can do to little ones, check out mychildrenhaveleadpoisoning.com for a story of a local family whose children were severely poisoned by torch paint removal in 2005, the effects of which they are still suffering from today. Luckily I was aware of their story when I saw the propane disappearing under the tarp.
My husband heard the sound of a torch turning off and on under the tarp. I confronted the supervisor,
The CCB inspector found that four of the areas where paint had been removed were consistent with the use of heat guns, but one area, located where the tarp had been, and near where my husband heard the sound of a torch, was covered with scorch
Disappointingly, they got away with just a warning letter in this case, despite the investigator's certainty that they used a propane torch on the house. But in reviewing the CCB files on the affiliated CCB licenses (you should too!), it's clear both of these guys have long been flouting lead safety laws. In at least one case documented by the CCB, a neighbor child tested with significantly elevated lead levels after an affiliated license performed work next door using propane torches and inadequate power
