Denver Lead-Based Paint Education
Why Do You Need To Be Concerned About Lead?
Lead is a toxic metal that was used for many years in products found in and around our homes such as paints, metal window blinds, and lead water pipes. Lead also can be emitted into the air from motor vehicles and industrial sources, and lead can enter drinking water from plumbing materials.
Among the risks, unknown to many people, is that this is a toxic substance harmful to all people of all ages but most dangerous to children, pregnant women, and unborn babies. It often has accumulative tendencies hence dangerous even in small bits.Lead may cause a range of health effects, from behavioral problems and learning disabilities to seizures and death. Children six years old and under are most at risk.
Distinctive Property Inspections, therefore, through our competent trainers always advise people who paint or undertake house repairs that these paint containing lead should be avoided. Old paint should always be handled in a proper manner to prevent dropping of paint chips as they remain in most gardens years after causing lead deposits. Our company always advise homeowners or painters against dangerous ways of handling old paints like blasting, burning, dry scraping, dry sanding and using power tools in paint since they create very small particles that can be inhaled or even deposited in dangerous places to cause harm.
Most Common Sources Of Lead Poisoning
- Deteriorating lead-based paint
- Lead contaminated dust
- Lead contaminated residential soil
- Lead water pipes
Lead-based paints are medically often referred to as paints or even other surface coatings that could contain lead in excess of 1.0 milligrams per square centimeter or even 0.5 percent by the measure of weight, the recommendation having been from 50 percent before 1965, to 1 percent in 1965 to 0.25 in 1992 and later to 0.1 in 1997. Lead based paint was used prior to 1978.
Once we have made people aware of the risks that are involved while working with lead-based paints, we must try to divulge into the importance of having that know how.
