Health Effects of Lead

Lead is a neurotoxin, which means it harms our body in distinct and sinister ways. Lead can cause damage to the brain and nervous system, especially in children. It can cause behavioral and learning problems. It can slow growth of children, cause hearing loss, and even death.

While children are more prone to issues than adults, lead has killed thousands of adults and is linked to many health issues.

Where is Lead Found?

Lead is found mostly in older homes built before 1978, but can be occasionally found in homes newer than that as well.

It was a primary component in paint for many years as well as pipe solder and  other household items.

Lead primarily harms people when it is in dust form, and this can often be created with things like doors and windows, renovation work, painting, and other household activity.

 

What Can Be Done About It?

Having your home professionally tested is the first step. Once the issue is identified and recorded, then you can safely move on to the next step.

Lead paint is in approximately %70 of the homes in the US, so it is a common issue. The EPA has set up standards and work flows that contractors who work with lead are required to follow.

Be sure to have you home professionally tested, and then remediated by a qualified contractor.
