Lead Risk Assessor Serving Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, and Beyond
Lead paint is dangerous for a number of reasons, not only in homes, but in public spaces and offices as well. In 1977 the United States' Consumer Product Safety Commission, or CPSC, created a ban on lead paint because of the dangerous effects it carried. Widely used lead paint is now classified as a hazardous material and has a history of causing lasting health effects on the general population. Lead surveys and exposure monitoring are frequently needed in construction settings as well as manufacturing and industrial processes involving lead-containing materials.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the most common victims of lead paint are children, due to their natural response of putting foreign objects and their own hands in their mouth. If an environment contains lead, the surfaces that children contact can likely get them sick. However, children are not the only ones at risk; lead dust is also a hazard for building maintenance staff, construction workers, manufacturing employees, and even some hobbyists.
Some effects of lead-based poisoning include:
- Brain damage
