Lead exposure as a result from disturbing lead paint is becoming a prominent safety concern in renovating construction, demolition and from emergencies as a result of water damage and fire. When renovating, restoring or demolishing older homes lead exposure is a potential risk. Lead exposure has been linked to an array of ailments from developmental disorders to hearing loss. Children living in older homes are at the greatest risk and are most commonly exposed to lead through dust from lead based paints.
Lead is commonly found in lead-based paints, but did you know lead is also found in plumbing, water faucets, ceramic pottery glaze and crystal. As little as 3 grains equivalent of sugar in lead dust ingested daily for a period of a couple months can make a child lead toxic.
