Lead paint is a dormant hazard. If left alone, it doesn’t usually cause a problem. However, if you ever plan on remodelling or if it even starts to flake, lead paint can cause serious health issues. Ace Environmental Services Ltd offers lead testing in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland. We test the paint in your home to ensure that you and your family are not at risk for lead poisoning.
If it does turn out that there is lead in the walls of your house, it is best to get it removed right away. Ace Environmental Services Ltd also offers removal of lead, so you can rest easy again, knowing that your family’s health is no longer at risk.
Reasons You Need Lead Testing at Your Vancouver Home
Lead paint and its dust are common sources of exposure to lead poisoning. Lead poisoning is the buildup of lead in the body, usually over long periods of time. Lead poisoning commonly affects young children exposed to lead paint as well as adults with occupational exposure such as welding. Symptoms of lead poisoning include:
- Developmental delays
- Abdominal pain
- Neurologic changes
With high enough levels of lead in the body, lead poisoning can be fatal. To ensure you, your young children, and your loved ones are safe from this debilitating condition, be sure to get lead testing in your Vancouver home.
