If your home was built before 1978, it is a very strong possibility that lead paint has been used in its construction. The United States government banned the use of lead paint in 1978, but did not mandate its removal from existing homes or apartment buildings. Lead from paint is an exceptionally common cause of lead poisoning, especially amongst children, who are at high risk of developmental problems stemming from it. Paint that chips off of walls and fixtures can easily be consumed by small children as well, making it a huge risk. When renters or potential homeowners are not made aware of existing lead paint within a home, they mind find themselves staring down this terrible outcome.
