Prevent the riskWhy It’s Critical to Remove Lead from Your Home
Although most people know lead is dangerous, we are often asked how bad lead really is to people’s health.
To be candid: It’s very dangerous because even small amounts can cause great harm over a long period of time. Lead is especially dangerous for children because it can disrupt growth and development.
How can one get lead poisoning? You can get lead poisoning through:
- Ingesting lead or lead-based paint.
- Touching lead-based paint.
- Breathing in any fumes from burning lead paint.
