Many think lead-based paint is only harmful to young children, but its exposure is dangerous at all ages. It is important to know that lead exposure has much higher consequences in children though because they are still developing. While parents, landlords, homeowners, public buildings, schools, and more have all taken efforts to reduce or eliminate lead exposure, it still presents a serious issue today. Paint dust or paint chips can enter through ingestion or inhalation. This happens when painted surfaces become disturbed, which can occur through day to day activity. Paint dust settles into floors and various surfaces. Paint ultimately chips off walls and becomes part of the house dust. This can contaminate the dust a house accumulates which can then be inhaled. It can also enter through typical hand to mouth activity. Children have a greater exposure to lead in these situations due to their natural habits of putting toys, pacifiers, and other objects in their mouths. The best course of action to prevent lead exposure in the environment is elimination. Therefore the removal of lead paint has to be through a professional and done properly. A professional can care for the issue in a safe and effective manner, keeping anyone who may be exposed healthy and happy.
