Lead can pose a serious health risk to those living in your home. If your property was built before 1978 then there is a good chance it may contain lead in some form. From pipes to paint, this metal may come in contact with your home’s inhabitants.
If breathed or ingested, lead can cause permanent brain and nervous system damage in children and miscarriage in pregnant women. Even otherwise healthy adults can experience cardiovascular and kidney function problems after coming in contact with lead. As paint ages and peels, this harmful material could be making its way throughout your home.
As of April 2010, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) instated regulations that set new requirements for contractors that disturb painted surfaces in buildings built before 1978. This includes obtaining EPA certification, checking for lead and completing specific cleaning processes.
