Was your home built before 1978? If you are remodeling or even have peeling paint, be careful. The old paint might contain lead. Lead was used as pigment to speed up drying, increase durability, retain a fresh appearance and resist moisture that causes corrosion.
It is a common misconception that children get lead poisoning by eating the paint off the wall or window seal. The most common way children and even adults get lead poisoning is from the dust and the flakes of the old paint that has fallen to the ground. They get the dust on their hands or objects and then put them in their mouths. The old paint chips from the outside of building also fall to the ground and get into the soil. Children playing in the contaminated soil can ingest the lead by getting the dirt onto their hands and then putting their hands in their mouths.
The symptoms that children who have lead poisoning are: sluggish behavior, apathy, headaches, staring periods, tremors, seizures, loss of consciousness, abdominal cramps, loss of appetite, constipation, irritability, hyperactive behavioral. Lead poisoning in children causes nervous system damage, stunt their growth and delay development,
Adults can also be affected by lead poisoning. It can cause reproductive problems, high blood pressure, kidney and digestive problems, nerve disorders, memory and concentration problems, muscle or joint pain.
The EPA has a ruling that starting in April of 2010, contractors have to be must certified and must follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination.
