Lead Based Paint Abatement and Containment

Before the 1970s, household paint often contained lead. As lead paint ages, it can chip or crumble into dust. Exposure to lead-paint dust or chips by inhalation or ingestion can cause serious health problems. Children and pregnant women are at higher risk. So, if you live in or own an older home, you need to know how to protect yourself and others.

Lead is particularly dangerous to children because their growing bodies absorb more lead than adults do and their brains and nervous systems are more sensitive to the damaging effects of lead.

Lead is also harmful to other adults. Adults exposed to lead can suffer from nervous system effects, cardiovascular effects, decreased kidney function, and reproductive problems.
