How does lead paint affect you and those around you?

Over the last few decades, lead poisoning has become a major problem that should have been addressed long ago. This naturally occurring mineral can be harmful to humans when ingested. While lead paint is the most common source of this element, it also can be found in soil, dust, water, and gas.

Usually, lead poisoning puts children at greater risk as their bodies are more absorbent than adults. Since their nervous system and brain are still developing, they are more vulnerable to the effects of lead paint poisoning. Also, because children have the habit of tasting and touching everything within their reach, they are more exposed to it than us adults. This can result in behavioral and developmental health effects, including hearing issues, lower IQ, hyperactivity, and slowed growth, just to name a few.

Adults are exposed to water sources where old pipes are corroding, lead dust from old paint, or jobs where lead-based materials are used for construction, decorating, painting, etc. Pregnant women should also be careful as lead can harm the unborn baby.

Who needs professional lead removal services?

Just about anyone can require lead removal services. It’s good to be safe than sorry when it comes to your Philadelphia home. But since the ban on lead paint was passed in 1978, homes and public buildings like churches, hospitals, and schools built before 1978 must be inspected by a lead testing specialist.

Philadelphia Lead Paint Disclosure and Certification Law also require landlords to test all their rental properties constructed before 1978 for lead paint every four years. Landlords should provide tenants with certification prepared by a licensed lead inspector stating that the building is lead-free or lead-safe.

Lead paint on surfaces becomes hazardous when it starts to peel, flake, or chip. Even worse, having children around a building painted with lead paint can increase the likelihood of contamination when they mess about with it. At AAA Lead Professionals, we are devoted to protecting you, your family, employees, and tenants throughout our lead removal services. Be it on the exterior or the interior, we provide our services, keeping everyone’s safety in mind.
