Lead is a heavy metal that is seriously toxic to human health. Having lead paint in your home can lead to inadvertent ingestion of lead is a few ways. In the first scenario, the paint on an aging home will peel, chip and fall to the floor and other household surfaces where it can be unwittingly ingested by children and animals. Paint particles can also settle on counter surfaces, dishes and other items used for food preparation, potentially leading to ingestion. Secondly, doors and windows painted with lead paint will wear down over time and the lead paint can be emitted into the air, whereupon it is ingested through breathing. Both these situations can lead to significant health problems.
