About Lead Paint: Something You Might Not Know
Lead is a poisonous substance found in the paint used in our commercial or residential premises. Dust that comes from flaking and peeling old paint is the primary source of lead. Usually, lead poisoning occurs in homes built before 1970 because usage of lead in painting products was banned in Australia after the 70s. The limit for lead in paint by Australian NHMRC was 0.5% for domestic use. But as long as your lead paint is in good condition, it’s okay. The problem arises when the paint starts to peel and you see lead flakes in every corner.
What Happens When You Ingest Lead
Lead poisoning is a serious health issue for kids mostly under the age of 7 than the adults. Because they have the tendency to put almost everything in their mouth and you definitely would not risk their lives. Even your pets can be affected by lead for the same reason.
For pregnant women, even a low level of lead can be dangerous as it can affect the growth of the child. It can cause a premature birth too. So just to be sure a blood test is recommended to determine if there is the lead in blood and if yes then take immediate action to remove lead-based paint with the help of experts.
A high level of lead can affect kidneys, blood cells, brain and even cause your death. Appetite loss, vomiting, headache, muscle weakness etc. some symptoms if you are affected by lead.
Lead dust can contaminate the soil around the residential area and it might be dangerous if you are gardening or cultivating vegetables.
To avoid any of these hazards, you can easily test your paint if it has lead to it or not. To reduce the risks, hire an expert lead paint removal company with a proven track record.
