||Lead-containing paint on wooden window frames and doors is usually removed with pressurized hot air or by propane gas flame cleaning followed by sanding. Following a case of acute lead intoxication during this kind of work, the lead concentrations in personal air samples taken at the workplace of 17 workers were determined as well as the lead concentrations in the blood of some of these workers. Lead concentrations exceeded the exposure limit regardless of the paint removal method used. It is recommended that respirators be worn for this kind of work.
