There is a very wide range of health liabilities that are the result of lead, a toxic metal used for decades in various products throughout the home. Consider what you may be risking if you do not seek out professional lead paint removal – seizures, learning disabilities, behavioral problems and even death! That is just the beginning of the health effects. Sadly, children under the age of 6 are most vulnerable.
According to the EPA, paint used in homes before 1978 is the primary source lead poisoning. The following should be stern warning signs for you to seek our lead paint removal:
- Peeling paint in windows and window sills
- Chipped paint on doors and door frames
- Cracking paint along stairs, railings and banisters
- Broken down paint on fences and porches

If children are around a property with lead paint, they are particularly vulnerable because they are more prone to put their hands to their mouths; their growing bodies absorb lead to a greater degree; and children’s brains and nervous systems are more sensitive the damaging effects of lead.

- Nerve disorders
- High blood pressure and hypertension
- Reproductive malfunction in both men and women
