    Issues with Lead Based Paint

    Lead based paint is one of the leading and most common sources of risk for lead exposure and potential lead poisoning. Before 1978, lead based paint was widely used in many homes and businesses for its ability to last longer. 

    Many businesses and older homes built before it was government banned have the potential to contain lead particles that will need to be professionally and safely removed. The biggest danger of lead based paint is when the paint chips, becomes lead dust or lead gets into the ground and causes lead contaminated soil.

    Dangers of Lead Poisoning

    When the body is exposed to lead materials, lead poisoning occurs, leading to lead poisoning symptoms such as memory problems, abdominal pain, headaches, constipation, and intellectual issues, especially in young children. More serious effects of exposure to lead can cause seizures, anemia, coma, or death.

    Exposure to high levels of lead in pregnant women can cause miscarriage, premature birth, or stillborn birth. Young children are more prone to lead exposure as they are more susceptible to putting things in their mouths that contain lead, and their growing bodies absorb lead quicker and easier. Adults are more susceptible by working in certain occupations such as auto mechanics or construction workers.

    Even low levels of lead can prove to be a danger over prolonged exposure. The only way to prevent lead exposure is to remove all materials that contain lead.
