Guarding Against Hidden Dangers From The Past

Lead contamination is a serious concern due to its detrimental health effects. Exposure to lead can lead to various health problems such as blood disorders, reproductive issues, birth defects, high blood pressure, and disorders of the brain and nervous system.

The effects of lead poisoning can be immediate, long-term, or recurring, as the body stores lead in the bones.

To address lead hazards, the process of abatement is utilized. Our process involves the safe reduction of hazardous paint materials through methods like enclosure, removal, replacement, or encapsulation.

Before initiating any abatement activities, an experience EMS professional will conduct a thorough exposure assessment.

In cases where the exposure level is insignificant and no construction, remodeling, or demolition activities are planned, abatement may not be necessary.

Our goal is to ensure the safety and well-being of our clients by providing effective solutions tailored to their specific needs.

Lead Paint F.A.Q.

Most Commonly Asked Customer Questions

Lead can have detrimental effects on the body, whether it enters through inhalation or ingestion. It can impact various organs and systems, with the nervous system being particularly vulnerable in both adults and children.

Children are especially at risk, with higher exposure and potential side effects. These may include hyperactivity, growth impairment, hearing issues, and headaches.

In adults, long-term exposure to lead can result in decreased neurological function, weakness in joints and extremities, increased blood pressure, anemia, and potential damage to the brain and kidneys, which can be life-threatening. Lead exposure can also lead to complications during pregnancy and fertility issues.

To safeguard your health and well-being, it’s crucial to address lead exposure promptly. Contact EMS for a comprehensive consultation and assessment of lead hazards. Our experienced team will develop a customized plan to mitigate the risks and ensure a safer environment for you and your loved ones.

Don’t underestimate the dangers of lead; take action today to protect yourself and your family.

To minimize the risks associated with lead exposure, it is crucial to take preventive measures. Follow these guidelines to protect yourself and your employees:

  • Avoid contact with potential sources of lead.
  • Keep children from chewing or mouthing surfaces that may have been painted with lead-based paint.
  • If you suspect your water source may be contaminated, run or flush water that has been standing overnight before using it for drinking or cooking.
  • Be cautious of certain paints and pigments used in makeup or hair coloring, as they may contain lead. Keep these products out of reach of children.
  • If your facility has lead-based paint or you reside in an area with potential contamination, frequently wash hands and faces to remove lead dust and grime. Regularly clean your living space to minimize dust and tracked-in dirt.

By implementing these practices, you can significantly reduce the risk of lead exposure.

For more personalized advice and solutions, contact EMS today for a consultation. Our team is dedicated to creating a safer environment for you and your staff.

To assess lead exposure and evaluate potential lead poisoning, several testing methods are available:

  • Blood tests are commonly used to measure the amount of lead in the blood, providing an estimation of recent exposure. This method is often employed for lead poisoning screening in children.
  • X-ray techniques can be utilized to measure lead levels in teeth or bones. However, these methods may not be widely accessible.
  • Another approach is to measure erythrocyte protoporphyrin (EP) in blood samples. EP levels increase when there is a high concentration of lead in the blood.
  • It’s important to note that EP levels may not be sensitive enough to identify children with elevated blood lead levels below approximately 25 micrograms per deciliter (μg/dL). These tests typically require specialized analytical equipment that may not be available in a doctor’s office.
  • Your doctor can collect blood samples and send them to appropriate laboratories for analysis.

Consulting with a healthcare professional is essential to determine the most appropriate testing method for evaluating lead exposure. They will guide you through the process and ensure accurate analysis of your lead levels.

To maintain a lead-safe home environment, regular cleaning of friction points like window jams and sills is recommended. Use a damp cloth or sponge with soapy water to clean these areas. However, avoid excessive cleaning that may spread the problem further.

Dust can accumulate on other horizontal surfaces as well, so it’s important to follow the same cleaning procedures for those areas.

If you suspect larger amounts of lead present in a commercial or industrial facility, it’s crucial to contact EMS. Our skilled professionals will assess the situation and provide solutions to ensure your health and safety.
