Peeling paint in abandoned buildings is so beautiful, especially brightly colored peeling pain from graffiti artist’s paint. I’m sure it’s full of lead. But that’s why I am so healthy and will live forever, I’ve been exposed to everything and immune to it all.  #abandonedplaces #abandoned #abandoned_af #abandondedphilly #abandonedphiladelphia #urbexphotography #urbexexploration #urbexutopia #urbexplaces #abandonedbuildings #abandonedbuilding #abandonedphilly #philadelphia #philly #cityofphiladelphia #forgotten #forgottonplaces #urbexworld #leadpaint #peelingpaint
Cracks in exterior/interior walls could be a sign that the home has foundation issues. Call us at (866) 996-4274‬ to schedule your inspection and we know what signs to look for that could end up being huge issues.

Lead, a known neurotoxin.....made headlines with the Flint, MI water crisis and, unfortunately, there are more towns around the US in similar situations. Even the CDC, WHO and EPA agree "there is no known safe level of lead exposure".
_
Where it's found:
Lead is mostly found in the air, dust, water, and soil as remnants from prior usage. It is still found in pipes, solder, artificial turf, ceramics and cosmetics. Lead can also be found in toys, dishes, candy, & jewelry imported from other countries. 🚫Banned from paint in 1978 in the US but still in homes built before 1978. Chipping of the paint and renovations to the home create more exposure. 🚫Phased out of gasoline for road use by 1996 in the US (but still allow trace amounts). It is still used in aviation gasoline, avgas. 
_
Children are most at risk due to being lower to the ground (crawling or wiping hand on areas where dust accumulates), playing in dirt and putting their hands and other objects in their mouths. 
_
Health effects:
Lead accumulates in our brain, kidneys, liver and bones. At high levels, it can lead to coma, convulsions and death. 
Per the WHO, lead can affect children’s brain development resulting in reduced intelligence quotient (IQ), behavioural changes such as reduced attention span and increased antisocial behaviour, and reduced educational attainment. Lead exposure also causes anaemia, hypertension, renal impairment, immunotoxicity and toxicity to the reproductive organs. The neurological and behavioural effects of lead are believed to be irreversible."
Remember when I inspected a mold-filled building, wasn’t warned about it (therefore not prepared), and felt sick for a few hours post-inspection? Me too, feels like it was yesterday. #os_environmentaldetective #leadpaint

#weekendproject at #miwasplace. This one is taking so long as I am stripping the layers of #oldpaint and #leadpaint. Not many #kitchencabinetdoors are no longer  installed this way with the #doors close flush, so the sizes and the #installation must be precise. That’s why I like the old #kitchencabinets. The #doorhinges are hidden as you can see from the pics; the only part you see is the pivot elbow part. They were covered with paints as well. I removed the paint to bring them to the original #stainlesssteel. This project will probably last the entire year. 😂😭 But I am sure I will be very satisfied when completed! 
我が家の #キッチンキャビネット は #1959年 のオリジナル。今ではおそらくこういうキャビネットは作ってないのだろう。まず、今のキャビネットのドアーは、枠にはまらず外側に浮いているスタイル。こちらのは枠にはまっていて、ヒンジ #蝶番 #ちょうつがい がユニークで、外からはピボットする肘にあたる部分しかみえない。枠にはまらせないといけないので、ドアのサイズもぴったりしていないといけない。こういう所が私は好きで、リストレーションをしようと決めました。古いため、ペンキが何度も塗られていて、しかも鉛いりのペイント。落ちにくい。時間がかかる作業で今年中に終わるかどうか分かりませんが、とにかくコツコツとやります。全てが終われば満足できると思います。#根性
While most developed countries have banned the use of asbestos over the past 10-20 years and spent billions worldwide removing it from products and buildings asbestos remains popular due to its fire resistance, versatility and chemical inertia. In countries like India for example it remains an affordable material which is only growing in popularity.

Lead paint. The removal of?
Researching this has thrown up more questions than answers - from painting it over to burning to caustic soda. 
I've also been told not to bother with a testing kit, which I assumed was a basic starting point.
Any fellow renovators got views on this? 
10 doors will be dipped as the varnish has been treated to an attractive glue finish before they covered then with ply. 
Spindles and newel post received the same glue treatment and needs to be taken back to the wood.

Lead-based paints are most likely found on window frames 🖼, doors 🚪, skirting boards, exterior walls or gutters on homes or structure built before 1970.

Sometimes lead-based paint may be covered by more recently applied paint and becomes an issue when the paint deteriorates.

In the fresh pursuit of antique bottles it had not even crossed my mind that there could potentially be ceramic signs that had survived underground for 85+ years!  I encountered the edge of this sign just before dark and having no idea how big it would be, I worked into the darkness to carefully extract it!  Fortunately I had a headlamp on me.  Was blown away by the condition of this sign!  View the photos from the end to see them in sequential order of the dig. -

EPA Lead certification and training was a success today as I passed the test with 100 percent. I am an EPA lead certified renovator now and our firm has a lead cert for 5 years. Houses built before 1978 require a certified renovator on site to test for lead, don’t trust your projects to amateurs. In any profession, it’s important to receive all of the necessary training to make sure that your clients receive the best treatment and to do your due diligence. Thank you to our instructor Spencer Hoff For making it a fun event! #epa #duedilligence #leadcertified #rockymtnrestoration #leadpaint #learningisearning #coloradosprings #painting #generalcontractor #colorado #contractorsofinsta rockymtnrestore.com
#toxic #toys! Whenever you deal with old and used toys, or other recycled materials, you should have a #lead #testkit on hand. Especially if paint is involved. Lead in surface finishes where used until 1978 and can cause serious #healthissues. This set of cute #dollfurniture was handed down from my mother in law. It's tested positive! 
My tip: Have a few cheap pads around for quick testing and one expensive set (like from @3m) to verify. | #mtoyprojects

My Hero primer. 
This 5 gallon pail of EcoBond LeadDefender has gone with me to every. single. room. in our #newoldhouse and worked it’s magic on every bit of 😱 lead painted trim, window sill, bookshelf, railing, shelf, baseboard, and door (basically all the wood - I for real have not stopped priming since September). It works by sealing AND treating lead in paint by chemically bonding with the lead and turning it into lead phosphate, a combo that has 85% less bioavailability than straight lead (in other words it passes through your body instead of being absorbed by it). It also - kind of hilariously - has Bitrex, an incredibly bitter additive in it that deters kids from eating paint chips and chewing on windowsills (like i recently caught my teething baby munching on). I know it works because it also effectively deters ME from even licking a finger after getting even a teeny splatter on my hand 8 hours later 🥴😝🤬. All that and it’s really nice paint too. Check it out online at www.ecobondlbp.com for more information! (Just no one tell me this doesn’t work because I’ll just have to tear the whole house down!) #leadpaint #leadpaintsolutions #ecobondlbp #leaddefender #dontlickthewalls

Saturday’s auction brought me the perfect chair to go with my cherished table. My favorite aunt had it in her cellar for 60+ years. it wasn’t decor, it was utilitarian. The transferred newspaper print on the top and the alligatoring are authentic. The chair has authentic alligator paint. The room isn’t styled yet, the toile balloon toppers are hanging over a chair, the Victorian bed is not put together. The box springs are still in storage. This little corner sparks joy. #bundleonhigh #loveyourdecor #auction #myjoy #vintagelife #knowyourstyle #leadpaint #dontlickit #dontsettle #ebayseller #etsyshop
Home renovators can create lead hazards without even realizing it.
If old paint isn’t handled properly, lead dust and paint chips can remain in the home or garden for years.

There are definitely days I feel like an abandoned place. Trashed and decaying with time. No matter how much success you achieve, what you have or don't have or even if your surrounded by people who love you; the mind has a way of perverting the truth to tell you that life is meaningless and at the end of it all you'll achieve nothing.
As King Solomon once said: Ashes to ashes, dust to dust.

So we have lead paint. That’s chipping because it’s an old house and because the kids ram shit into the wood constantly. We have to encapsulate it. The paint is two times more expensive than regular paint. We have to clean everything, let that dry, scrape and wet clean. We have to plaster and caulk. We have to clean again. Then we encapsulate, probably multiple times. I don’t know how we are going to do this, it’s going to take all spring and summer. I’m sick about it and my dream houses has become more of a nightmare. On top of that we are waiting for the city to replace the main water line of yep, a lead pipe leading into our home. If anyone has any tips please comment or message.

Ever wonder what's #inbetween the surfaces? #X-rays have been penetrating works of #art since 1896 and we shoot a lot of them through #decoys. Here are a few #radiographs of #birds I've been working with recently.
I’m tired of renovating bathrooms so I decided I’m going to start stripping these massive French doors in my front parlor. From what I can gather they have no less than 10 coats of paint. I don’t think they’re made of any spectacular type of wood but they’re gonna look great! And I cannot wait to have the locking mechanisms in working order again. And yes they are painted salmon and mint green.

Lead exposure is an issue not only with lead-based paint, but also when lead bullets are used in firing ranges. Here are some tips to help prevent excess exposure:⠀
.⠀
- Shoot outdoors if possible where there is better ventilation⠀
- Never eat or drink while shooting⠀
- Wash hands immediately after with soap and COLD water⠀
- Change your clothing and shoes immediately when you get home minimizing exposure to family, children, and pets.⠀

This week in 2001, we completed restoration to Harpers Ferry National Historical Park in WV. Named after Robert Harper, Harpers Ferry is located on a unique geographic location at the intersection of the Shenandoah and Potomac rivers where Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia meet. As the name of the town indicates, Harpers Ferry was originally used as a ferry crossing in the 18th century due to its key placement between the two rivers. The small town was famous from its early years as a visiting spot for George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. It served as one of only two US armory facilities in the early 1800s, and more than 600,000 firearms were produced there before being destroyed to prevent capture during the Civil War. Harpers Ferry then transformed into a strategic supply line and stronghold throughout the Civil War and changed hands eight times between the Union and Confederacy. It was also the target of John Brown’s famous Raid on Harper’s Ferry in 1859. KSR performed exterior restoration of historic buildings in the national park, including The Harper House, the oldest house in Harpers Ferry. Our work included lead paint removal, masonry repairs, slate roof installation, chimney rebuilding, stucco repairs, and restoration of over 100 windows.

D O O R • F R A M E S • That moment when the 'Peelaway' isn't 'peeling away' anymore & after hours of scraping & getting covered in goop, you begin to question why you decided to strip the frames in the first place when you could have just painted over them 🤷🏼‍♀️

When annual deaths from lung cancer, mesothelioma and asbestos are tallied, the scale of asbestos mortality is staggering. We calculate that from 1999 to 2013, between 11,586 and 15,510 Americans died each year from asbestos-related diseases.

The pain of stripping a staircase...giving birth has nothing on it. Week one was spent on nitromors which was a complete waste of time. Week two was paint gun time which I thought was the answer to my prayers but was turning the bottom varnish layers into some sort of sticky hardened mess. Have now moved on to a mixture of Peelaway 1 and wet scraping (and constant cleaning and spraying and wiping...repeat). Just want to get the sander at it but can’t because of the lead paint. My hands are raw and covered in a mixture of chemical and heat-gun burns 🙄😂 #victorianhallway #stairrenovation #leadpaint #hallwayrenovation #hallwayinspiration #peelaway#renovation#victorianterrace#periodhome #periodhouserenovation #reno #homeimprovement #newhouse#victorianhome #victorianhouse#banister #diy#homedecor#ataircase
