Why You Should have Lead Paint Removed from Your Home
Lead paint was routinely used in household paint in West Linn up until the late 1970s, when the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) banned its use due to the recognition that it posed a serious health hazard. While ingestion of lead paint is especially dangerous for children, adults are not immune to it whatsoever. As you can imagine, small children who wantonly put things into their mouths are at especially high risk for lead poisoning in homes that have lead paint – because as a home ages paint chips and peels fall to the ground.
Ingestion of lead paint can also occur via breathing of lead paint dust from doors and windows that open and close. Any kind of lead paint ingestion can lead to lead poisoning or lead toxicity, and result in learning disabilities and impaired nervous system and brain functions – among many other conditions. The EPA states lead paint is the “number one environmental threat to the health of children in the United States.”
Better to be safe than sorry and have your home inspected for lead paint.
