Ways That Lead Paint is Ingested
As a home gets older, the paint peels, chips and falls to the floor and other household surfaces, where children and animals have easy access to ingest it. However, a more common way lead paint is ingested is through fine dust particulates that are emitted into the air through repeated opening and closing of windows and doors. The lead paint particulates are breathed in, and they can collect on food, plates, cups and other surfaces where they may also be ingested.
