Over the years, lead has been mined and used in many products that were found in and around our homes and buildings. Exposure to lead should be avoided since it is highly toxic to humans, especially young children.
The main danger from lead comes from the ingestions of paint chips and inhalation of dust containing lead. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) there are an estimated 1/2 million children in the United States that have blood levels high enough to cause irreversible damage to their health.
The list of lead containing materials is extensive and can involve more than just paints on walls and trims. Virtually any painted, stained, or varnished item has the potential to contain lead. In addition some homeowners may want to consider having their water tested for lead.
