Lead is a chemical element that is commonly found in deteriorating paint in older homes and buildings. This naturally occurring, soft, and highly malleable metal is widespread and simple to extract, making it a viable choice for consumer products in the past such as paint, ceramics, pipes, solders, gasoline, batteries, cosmetics, and more. At Allec, LLC, our expert staff is licensed and insured to remove existing lead-based paint hazards – which are most commonly present in homes and structures that were built prior to 1978.
Our lead abatement and removal services are imperative, as lead exposure can be toxic to humans and animals. Lead-based paint was most prominently used in homes built between the 1940s and 1960s, making it a leading source of lead exposure in the United States.
Pregnant women and young children (6-years-old and under) are most susceptible to the effects the adverse health effects of lead exposure such as learning and behavioral issues, stunted growth, anemia, irritability, abdominal pain, premature birth, seizures, and even death.
The Residential Lead-Based Paint Hazard Reduction Act of 1992 was implemented so that the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) could regulate standards to minimize or eliminate the amount of lead in consumer products and occupational settings due to this kind of high-risk toxicity.
