How Dangerous is Lead?
Lead paint was commonly used on both home interior and exterior. It is not dangerous when it’s not disturbed and can be further disarmed by applying a special protective coating. However, when you perform sanding, drilling, sawing or otherwise disrupt a surface covered with lead paint, you cause the paint to flake off and release lead dust into the air.
- Lead exposure may cause permanent kidney damage, as well as blood pressure and fertility problems in adults.
- Children are particularly sensitive to lead and way develop behavioral, learning and physical problems as a result of lead exposure.
- Exposure to lead both before and during pregnancy may slow down development of the baby, as well as result in premature birth and other health issues.
