“Bayview Lodge” in Rockdale, Sydney
Heritage Lead Paint Stripping & Repaint
In December 2012, Lancaster Painters Australia performed safe poultice lead paint stripping, sealing and filling work to the walls and ceilings in the store room and a bedroom including the bedroom door and door frame of Bayview Lodge. We lead tested the surfaces prior to commencement of works.
All lead stripping and removal work was carried out to Lead Safe Australian Standards AS 4361.2:1998 specification on lead paint stripping. We laid plastic and mdf sheeting to protect surfaces and fittings during the process of works, and applied plastic to the windows and door frames in order to achieve full containment. Lead abasement signs were erected and we ensured protective clothing and masks were worn by workers at all times. We performed extensive filling, wet sanding and sealing of surfaces using paint, and performed further lead testing to ensure zero levels of contamination had been achieved. We used a hepa vacuum cleaner to safely clean surfaces and washed them down. All contaminated water and rubbish created by the lead stripping works including the plastic and mdf sheeting, and the protective clothing and masks were placed in lead containment bags. We tied and sealed them prior to safe disposal as per the local council regulations. For more information, photos of the work and testimonial, click here.
