You’ve received San Francisco Building Department’s Lead Paint Notice of Violation. We are on their approved list of inspectors.
Usually, Lead Paint Notice of Violation is used when a contractor fails to clean up after repairs or when a tenant complains. Peeling and chipping paint is also an area that will produce lead dust.
Lead paint dust can cause mental retardation, especially in children.
Lead-based paint covers most of the walls, interior, and exterior, in San Francisco.
Lead-paint dust is created when there is friction of painted surfaces. So, when someone opens a door painted with lead-based paint, lead-containing dust, in small amounts, falls on the ground.
Children crawl through lead dust; then put their hands in their mouths.
We hold all the lead credentials to quickly, completely and thoroughly resolve a Lead Paint Notice of Violation. We can perform initial testing and give clean up guidance to your chosen lead abatement contractor. After the clean up testing is usually required; which we can provide.
NOVs are similar to parking tickets – it’s a small amount to pay it now, but if you ignore it, you can receive a boot on your car – or in this case – a lien on your building.
