Houston Overhead Door is Now EPA Lead-Safe Certified

HOUSTON, Feb. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Houston Overhead Door is now certified by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to remove and dispose of overhead doors, trim and other building materials with measurable lead content in them. 

Removal experts are trained on methods to remove the structure without spreading the lead contamination. They learn how to protect themselves and the environment while providing this service. They are provided with specific instructions regarding disposal to keep the lead out of ground water supplies.

Most garage door companies don't invest in the special EPA training and certification. They will provide you with a list of people that can come in and handle the lead removal, but this leads to coordinating multiple teams. With Houston Overhead Door, you only have to make one call. We will test the door and trim to determine if special removal is required due to the lead content. Removing the existing door and lead-contaminated items, we will finish the job by installing your new door. You won't have to coordinate multiple teams, and you can trust that everything will be completed to the high standards you expect.

Lead paint was commonly used throughout the first half of the twentieth century, and most homes built prior to the late 1970s are likely to have lead-based paint in them. Posing a risk to your family and the environment, any household fixtures covered with lead paint must be removed by certified professionals.

There are several dangers associated with lead paint on Garage Doors in Houston. Left undisturbed, it generally doesn't pose a threat. However, it can be a serious danger. Flaking paint can be picked up and eaten by young children. Dropping to the ground around the exterior of your home, it soaks in the ground and enters the ground water supply. Kicked up in the wind when conditions are very dry, it can also be inhaled. 

As the garage opens and closes, minute amounts of lead paint on the door can be knocked loose, sent airborne and wind up being breathed in by your family or pets.

Lead paint that is flaking can fall off at any time and contaminate the area. When household fixtures like garage doors are trim are being removed, the risk of lead paint falling to the ground increases significantly.

Houston Garage Door offers a full range of services including installation of new doors, drums, cables, springs, pulleys, struts, tracks, rollers, bearings and more. Any of the hardware and painted surfaces can have high lead levels, but we will test everything for you. Contaminated items are safely removed so we can proceed with the renovation and safely install a door that looks incredible.
