Why Is Lead Paint Dangerous?
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.
What Specific Health Problems Are Caused by Lead Paint?
Lead paint was banned for use in 1978 by the Environmental Protection Agency because it was found to cause developmental and learning disabilities as well as behavioral problems in children. However, lead paint also causes a host of health risks for adults, including anemia, seizures, impairments in the brain and nervous system functioning, and internal organ damage. In large doses, lead paint can lead to unconsciousness and death. Most homeowners want to ensure a substance that is this lethal is not in their homes!
Great experience, from initial contact through to final invoice payment. Painters (Wendy & Max) were careful, considerate, thorough, and professional. The estimate and work in progress accounting was fair, transparent, and responsive. Highly recommended.
SFW from start to finish on my two decks were exemplary. Alex and Bryan supervised their team and were kind, professional and kept me in the loop every step. They were also very clean and timely. I highly recommend this company for any of your construction needs.
Greg and team did a great job of managing the project. Work was done in a timely and efficient manner and communications were clear and professional. Any follow up items were quickly addressed and I am very pleased with the paint work that was done.
