What is Lead And Lead-Based Paint?
Lead is a metal found in the Earth’s crust. Although sometimes found in dust, water, and soil, this natural element is highly toxic. Unfortunately, lead was once a common additive in paint due to its ability to increase moisture resistance, durability, and dry time. This type of paint is now commonly referred to as “lead-based paint” or “lead paint”.
Today, manufacturing lead-based paint for residential use is prohibited due to the significant health hazards exposure to this material poses to individuals. However, this ban only went into effect in 1978, meaning if your household was built prior to that year, there is a high probability the paint is lead-based.
What Are The Risks of Lead-Based Paint?
Lead-based paint is most hazardous when it begins to deteriorate. At this point, the paint may peel, chip, crack, or even turn to dust. This is alarming because lead particles are easily ingested or inhaled and can also easily be absorbed into the body by way of contact with skin and may then lead to often serious and sometimes fatal health conditions, including lead poisoning. Just some of the major health risks this toxic material can lead to include:
As you can see, exposure to lead is a serious issue that must be handled properly in order to ensure the health and safety of your household or business.
