Lead-Based Paint

Lead-based paint was commonly used in homes and buildings until its ban in 1978. Despite this prohibition, many structures still contain lead-based paint layers, especially those built before the 1980s.

Lead is a toxic metal that can cause serious health issues, particularly in children and pregnant women. When lead-based paint deteriorates or is disturbed during renovation or demolition, it can release lead dust and particles into the air, soil, and water, posing significant health risks.

Hazards Associated with Lead-Based Paint

Exposure to lead, even in small amounts, can lead to severe health problems, including:

Neurological Damage: Lead exposure can impair cognitive function, leading to learning disabilities, behavioral problems, and reduced IQ in children.
Developmental Delays: Pregnant women exposed to lead may experience complications such as premature birth, low birth weight, and developmental delays in their babies.
Organ Damage: Lead can accumulate in the body over time, causing damage to the kidneys, liver, and other organs.
Behavioral and Mood Disorders: Lead exposure has been linked to increased aggression, hyperactivity, and other behavioral issues.

Given these serious health risks, it’s crucial to identify and address lead-based paint hazards promptly.
