What Is Lead, and Why Is it Dangerous?

Lead is a dangerous, poisonous metal that was unfortunately used in many homes and businesses across the United States for many years. Lead was used in plumbing materials, vehicles, and paints before it was banned. The EPA now requires testing before disrupting surfaces that could contain this hazardous material. There is an increased risk of contracting many serious illnesses from exposure to lead in the air, water, or soil.

Lead exposure poses the most significant risk to children under the age of six. They can be exposed at home, school, or at a daycare facility. Young children can even be exposed to lead poisoning from their mothers before birth. It's important that if you have started a renovation or restoration project before submitting to lead testing that you stop immediately. Call in the professionals at LimeGreen Water Damage & Restoration. Our team can help ensure that you aren't posing a risk to those around you.

Children who are exposed to continued high levels of lead can suffer from:

  • Brain and nervous system damage
  • Stunted growth
  • Learning difficulties
  • Behavior problems
  • Headaches
  • Deafness

Sadly, lead poising poses a serious threat to children in the United States; however, that is not to suggest that children are the only population at risk. Adults can also be harmed by lead poisoning.

Adults are at risk for:

  • Nervous system disorders
  • Joint and muscle issues
  • Diminished reproductive capabilities
  • Memory problems

Why You Need Lead Testing During the Restoration Process

For many years, lead was used as an additive to interior paint to help it dry faster, last longer, and withstand corrosion. The scientific community later discovered that lead-based paints posed significant dangers to families and businesses. In 1978, the CSC banned lead paints, but many older homes and businesses still have these paints on the walls. While lead paint that has not been compromised from wear and tear is not hazardous, any paint that has started to chip and break down can pollute the air and harm those who breathe it. If your home or business is older, you may need to consider lead testing even if you aren't renovating.

It's critical that your home or business is tested for lead if any of the following apply:

  • You are about to begin renovations or remodeling of your home or office.
  • You have suffered an emergency incident that requires professional cleanup of water, mold, sewage, or fire damaged debris.
  • Your home is being tested for other older substances like asbestos or plaster from popcorn ceilings.
  • Your home or office was built before 1978.
  • You or anyone in the dwelling is feeling unwell, and the symptoms align with lead poisoning.

The EPA requires lead testing for any home built before 1978 because disturbing lead-based paints and releasing those particles into the air could put those using the property at risk for many serious health issues. Lead dust is a very harmful toxic material that has long-lasting negative health effects.
