In the past, lead was added to paint to retard deterioration, improve durability, and enhance quality. Unfortunately, exposure to lead can cause a wide variety of health issues including developmental problems in children and damage to the kidneys and brain in adults.

Consequently, the disturbance of lead-containing coatings is regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and many state agencies. The presence of lead in coatings is also controlled by the Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in target housing.

The mere presence of lead in coatings generally is not a problem. Health risks arise when lead-coated surfaces are allowed to deteriorate over time or are drilled, sanded, or heated during renovations. The dust produced by those activities can become airborne and get inhaled or swallowed, causing serious health issues. And, unfortunately, lead-laden dust remains in a work area indefinitely. If it isn’t taken care of properly and fully, it can pose a health risk years or even decades later.

Lead Exposure Risks Are Highest in Children

Lead exposure poses a greater risk to children and babies for a few reasons. One is that they’re more inclined to put their hands and other objects in their mouths. If those items have lead dust on them, that material is then ingested. In addition, children’s growing bodies absorb more lead, and their still-developing brains and nervous systems are more easily damaged by lead exposure.
