LEAD
Asbestos Removal and Construction Services in Toronto - Man With Mask

    Lead can be found in interior and exterior paints or in plumbing as lead pipes or lead solder on copper pipes. The presence or absence of lead in a building may have many implications. Dangers associated with lead dust from renovation and demolition activities in older buildings and the high costs for lead clean-up or removal by recognized professionals must be realized and passed on to your clients. Lead is now being placed in the same group as asbestos and area formaldehyde with regards to reducing the value of a property. Lead, once identified, becomes a health hazard to contractors and a potential future liability for property owners and the architect responsible for the project.

    Why is it dangerous?

    Lead poisoning symptoms can include insomnia, irritability, restlessness, poor attention span, memory loss, headaches, anemia, muscle tremors, and stomach cramps. Short-term exposure can cause vomiting, diarrhea, convulsions coma, and death. Excess levels of lead in the body can impair male fertility and increase miscarriages, stillbirths, and premature deliveries.
    Toxic exposure to lead can affect a child’s brain and nervous system development and can lead to behavioral problems. Learning disabilities, or reduced intelligence. Developing fetuses and pre-school-aged children more readily absorb lead.
