Lead is a highly toxic metal that was prevalently used throughout homes, schools and businesses. Lead may cause a range of health effects, from behavior problems and learning disabilities to seizures and death. Children of age 6 years and younger are at most risk since their bodies are growing quickly and they often touch and ingest lead painted/contaminated items. According to the EPA, the primary sources of lead exposure for most children are: deteriorating lead-based paint, lead-contaminated dust and lead-contaminated residential soil. Over the recent years, lead has been eliminated or reduced in gasoline, drinking water, industrial air pollution and consumer products (including paint). Arch Environmental Group has the knowledge, equipment and certifications needed to address your lead concerns whether you need a lead inspection, risk assessment or industrial/occupational air sampling.
