The Dangers of Lead

Lead poisoning is a high concern for both children and adults.

Lead can cause:

  • Permanent problems with health, learning, and behavior in young children.
  • High blood pressure, kidney damage, and fertility problems in adults.

You can be exposed to lead any time you breathe lead dust, fumes, or ingesting anything that contains lead.

About 75% of homes built before 1978 contain some lead-based paint. The older the home the more likely it is to contain lead-based paint. You should assume that any home built before 1978 contains some lead.
