A Hidden Peril
You may be in danger if you live or work in a building that was built before 1978. For a significant portion of the 1900s, lead was a common component in the making of interior and exterior paint. It was added to increase durability, repel moisture and speed up the drying process. It wasn’t until the late ‘70s that the full dangers of lead poisoning were discovered and the use of it declined.
The Hazards of Lead Paint
It is commonly thought that contracting lead poisoning is only a risk if the painted wall is damaged; this is a dangerous myth. Regular paint weathering is enough to contaminate soil, water and even air. Lead poisoning is often difficult to detect because people may seem perfectly healthy until toxic amounts have accumulated in their bodies. Children are especially susceptible and could be in danger of permanent damage.
