Clean Up Of Lead

Known for its removal of asbestos, Paragon Environmental cleans and removes other toxic substances sometimes found in homes or offices. Synthetic drugs is one problem. What you should know about drug removal can be found within various informative blog articles on our website. Whether you are a home owner, buyer, property manager, realtor or landlord, be sure you’re familiar with the following.

Sometimes thought of as less frightening, is the removal of lead, lead dust and loose paint chips that contain lead. It’s important to follow industry standard cleaning protocols for a thorough and safe cleaning of lead in homes or offices.

The Lead Problem. Lead can cause damage to the brain and nervous system. Several articles in the news lately remind us that this is a problem in homes today – across the country – even though lead paint was banned in 1978. The latest articles point to drinking water that was contaminated by lead pipes. The past January, the White House made replacing lead pipes a priority across America. Lead has also been found in soil. Imported or vintage toys may also contain lead paint. And there may be some risk of lead dust on clothes if you or someone in your family works in industries such as auto repair, welding or construction. If you suspect the presence of lead around your home or office, have the area tested immediately.

The symptoms. Symptoms are most often detected in children first – especially young children who like to put everything in their mouths. Even the lowest levels of lead can lead to a risk of lower IQ. Children with some level of lead in their blood may experience difficulties with learning, behavioral problems, slower growth rates, crankiness and even hearing or speech problems. Your doctor can test for lead levels in a child’s blood.

Adults with higher levels of lead may experience fatigue, headaches, vomiting and/or  high blood pressure – to name a few symptoms. In any case, if you have any suspicions, have yourself and/or your children tested immediately. The effects of lead exposure cannot be corrected.

The presence of lead. If any level of lead is detected in your home or office, call Paragon Environmental immediately. It’s important that the lead is cleaned thoroughly and precisely.
